WIth pictures I now believe this is the real thing.. looks really cool tbh.

Probably going to be 256bit bus width, but depending on the amount of shaders it has I might buy one over the GTX which I was thinking of getting for Xmas, will likely be a lot cheaper and at 65nm eat tons less power hehehe.

Though it depends on shaders, if its close to 8800gts performance id definatly get one.

with a 256 bus.... inferior to the 2900 pro, if its got 320 or 256 mb ram, thats bad to, and I suspect the number and clock of the shaders will be poor (at least compared to an OC'd 2900 pro which is effectively a 2900xt)

I wouldn't be so quick to judge this card based solely on the bus, 512-bit bus is nice, however we've seen that the GTS 320-bit and 384-bit bus works just fine for them too. I'd wait for the benchmarks (or at least for more solid info on it) before passing more judgment on a new card like this.

On top of that I don't see any power connector, and this can be REALLY good for nvidia if they can at least keep performance not too far away from the GTS, because a lot of people in the market for new cards usually have to factor in the cost of a PSU (+$100) for their purchase. (Not that I would recommend using a PSU that is much cheaper than that anyway.)

you do realize we all thought the 2900xt was going to blow the 8800 gtx out of the water because of its superior specs, myself included but it did not. So i am not quite ready to rule this new card out, even though i think the 2900pro will beat it.

* as of now we dont know the specs for sure

and lastly thanks very much Hatman for the great find :)

It's single slot

We got our own picture of the Geforce 8800GT and it confirms that the card is a 9-inch board, single slot design, and that it has two DVI and a HDTV out. You can not see the 3x2 power connector but it's there and the GPU is 65nm and it won't dissipate much heat.

Oh well... my point still stands (even though not as strong), it will use less power than the HD 2900 Pro, so that's definitely a pro for everyone who isn't too keen on power supplies. This one doesn't have to be the next nvidia "beast" in my eyes, it just has to hold it's ground right below the GTS with appropriate pricing ($200-220?) and a lot less power consumption to make it a good buy.

Wont necesarly beat 290-0pro but 3 things, 2900pro is being replced shortly, it is extremly limited numbers, and it may cost more then this card.

I love it because its single slot, i was thinking id have to upgrade to WC for a decent card to keep my 2 lovely PCI slots, now looks like I wont have too.

Since the 88gts runs happily on 400w, I don't see how a PSU can be a big issue if your computer even has PCI-Ex

Ignor..

Yes that is exactly what I think that the 8800GT has going for itself, more than raw performance it's a more cost effective solution over ATI's current offering if you factor in the PSU cost for the HD2900 Pro (Unless the HD2950 Pro released sometime soon has similar low power consumption).

nice nvidia!
keep going. maybe the first real accessible dx10 card? may end up in a lot of people s rig

looks like the heat it s expelled from the side

Definatly need to see more before making a proper judgement but if they have price/performance right this could be the end of the 1950pro/xt,and if they get to market before the 2950 cards then they will be ahead of ATI/AMD again.

yup yup. maybe it s gonna be the x1950pro competitor?

and the 8900 or something the x1950xt s competitor?

Both NV and ATi need to get some new cards out that fall between the 8800GTS 320MB/HD2900 pro and the 8600GTS/HD2600XT. It's just too big a performance gap and even the last gen cards that fit that spot like the X1950XT are disappearing. I welcome any new card that would offer a good bang for buck in the $200 range. Hopefully we will see some new cards that can compete/beat a X1950XT street priced under $200. I am also wondering how the Sapphire HD2900GT will do, how plentiful they will be, whether anyone else will produce them, and what the cost will be.
October 3, 2007 7:11:17 PM

oops i meant 2950 but yeah maybe even x1950?
October 3, 2007 7:41:41 PM

expelling heat out the side not gd for me beacuse my fans blow heat into it *tear*
October 3, 2007 8:51:40 PM

I can't imagin heat being dispelled out the side can be good for anyone if their case is closed. But hey it free's up an expansion slot.

You guys think any chance this card may rival 8800gts in performance? Or is it certain, that it WILL be a step below?
October 3, 2007 9:29:57 PM

Well, its meant to compete with 2950pro and xt, but seemingly they are better then nvidia expected, so we may well see the clock speeds on this thing ramped up by nvidia, and if not by the GPU retailers like evga and XFX.

Btw, its got 64shader processors, not as many as 8800gts, but with a high enough shader clock speed it still has a pretty gd chacne of getting close, and with rivatuners new custom shader OC it looks more then possible.

"According to various sources, the Geforce 8800GT also known as G92 will work at 600MHz for the core and 1.8GHz for the memory. The reference score for this card in 3DMark06 is 10,769." - Fudzilla

According to here

It looks like if the 8800GT comes out Nvidia is going to update
its 8800GTS Stream Processors from 96 to 112.

You mean they are simply going to unlock them? That could cause a lot of problems for pre-overclocked cards.. I doubt it will happen.. wouldnt make much sense at all...


edit.. read thru it, theyll just be releasing a "newer model" of the 640mb 8800gts according to that link.. which basically means all the ones already purchaed may be "obsolete" by a cheaper, more efficient, and possibly BETTER performing card.
