The year of 2007 is almost over, but what a year it has been! Although AMD/ATI did remain very quiet throughout the year, Intel and Nvidia kept us entertained for the most part, with new products. Although the GeForce 8 series was initially introduced late 2006 in the form of the GeForce 8800 GTX and 640MB GTS graphics cards, the series expanded into a complicated eleven card family during 2007.
There you have it, the GeForce 8 series in a nut shell. Although this elite graphics card series has been out and about for over a year now, it will still be quite a few months before the new GeForce 9 series arrives. That said, we do not expect to see any more new GeForce 8 series graphics cards being launched, at least we hope not to anyway. While there are eight unique products in total, excluding the GeForce 8500 GT and 8400 GS, there are also a number of memory capacity configurations to choose from as well.
