Saw this on another forum:
http://www.foxconnchannel.com/product/GraphicCards/detail_overview.aspx?ID=en-us0000048#

So I think this is as official as it gets other than from nVidia.

And the 8800GT is a g96 and not a g92 :) 

Specs from page

Not sure how good these sources are though:

Ignore the 1st reference in the about google search. It is actually a GTS 320mb for sale at ~$350.00 on ebay. Good luck to that dude.

I would say that looks pretty credible, and that card looks about as fruity as you could ever possibly get. they might have well just slapped a teletubbies turd on it.
October 18, 2007 10:03:31 PM

Yep thats official, Foxconn are official nvidia parteners. But it doesn't reveal anything new unfortunately, most important thing is the number of stream processors.
October 18, 2007 10:24:12 PM

The G96 thing really has me interested with this. Now it makes me wonder what the G92 is going to be. I'm pretty sure that they're just going to unlock a few shaders and call it a G92. Very interested and looking forward to see what comes of it.
October 18, 2007 10:35:47 PM

Or will the GT be the G96 and the update for the GTS 640 be G92? So many possibilities. All we can do is speculate.


My that is one fruity card foxconn has there.
October 18, 2007 10:46:39 PM

what were the heatsink painters smokin when they designed the thing? or maybe the hole where the fan is has a second meaning...
October 18, 2007 11:06:04 PM

lol, I can't believe you just went there.
October 18, 2007 11:25:01 PM

folks behave!!!!

I initially thought the picture was a fake because, of the design, but I went to foxconn, and it is consistent with the other 8800 cards.

BTW, hatman says this looks legit, so pleeeeeaaaseeee dont turn this into another speculation thread.

Go ahead and start a "G96==8800GT, means G92==8900" thread somewhere else.

Just kidding :kaola:  I say we get a 1 teraflop high end GPU before x'mas!!! At least I want one from eVGA so I can stepUp to it :sol:

Well the link no longer works so they must have removed it. Maybe they got the specs wrong :kaola:

I have a feeling that nVidia got wind off it, and gave them a call :lol: 

Or maybe someone in the Web Hosting department is getting a good smacking right now, for not being able to tell the diff between staging server and production server.

Or most likely, they did it on purpose. Nothing like a little teaser.

I still don't believe the G96 part, I reckon it's a typo, but probably deliberate from Nvidia to see how much the public are anticipating this thing. Just google "foxconn 8800gt" and see how much this got around.
October 19, 2007 5:10:20 AM

that 250$ price tag sure did look good!
October 19, 2007 5:18:43 AM

I believe the g96 part. if you think about it...

ATI is supposedly releasing the new 3 serries, so nvidia has to respond to that. since nvidia had suck a lead already, they prolly will do the GT, and an 8800 gs/gtx refresh
October 19, 2007 12:29:01 PM

Will PCIE 2.0 be able to downclock itself and run on PCIE 1.0?
October 19, 2007 12:55:35 PM

Yes - PCIE 1.0 cards will be able to run on PCIE 2.0 boards

Yeah but can a PCIE 2.0 card run in a PCIE 1.0 board?
October 19, 2007 5:55:51 PM

Anyone?

There is no g96, tahts the point, there was g92 aka 8800gt and g98 which was a very low end part.

Both are backwards compatible with eachother, in either case it runs at PCI-E bandwidth.
October 19, 2007 6:18:23 PM

No, it's only backwards compatible.
October 19, 2007 6:21:50 PM

PCIE 2.0 Cards will work in PCIE 1.0 Slots.

The only drawback is they will clearly be limited by PCIE 1.0 Bandwidth.
For initial PCIE 2.0 Cards that will not be an issue.

At some future time, it may be an issue.

PCI-E 2 cards will work in PCI-E motherboards:
http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/mainboards/display/2007081...
Note that these limitations have been revealed only for the Blitz mainboard series that uses CrossLinx chip. Other Asus mainboards on Intel P35 chipset should have no problems with PCI Express 2.0 graphics cards support.
October 19, 2007 6:28:26 PM

meh, i just got a new system, ill skip 2.0 and go 3.0 in 2009.
October 19, 2007 8:19:22 PM

I guess Foxconn took down the webpage. Did it confirm the 112 Stream Processors?
October 19, 2007 9:18:07 PM

Unfortunatly no, still waiting on that :(

Thats exactly the same thing. Either will work in any combination.

PCI-E2 mobo and card will run at PCI-E2 bandwidth.

PCI-E1 card and PCI-E2 mobo will run at PCI-E1.

PCI-E2 card and PCI-E1 mobo will run PCI-E1.

Simple as.

Is there a big performance hit from a PCIE 2 card in a PCIE 1 slot?

Yes!! PCI-Express 1.0 is has a transfer speed of 8GB/s, while PCI-Express has a transfer rate of 16GB/s. PCI-Express 2.0 is also backwards compatible.
October 20, 2007 3:21:15 AM

Is there a HUGE framerate drop or something?

I would imagine so. I mean when you cut the transfer rates in half, that can't really be a good thing.
October 20, 2007 6:32:30 PM

What? What a load of bull, there wont be hardly any difference at all!

Cards as it is only JUST ABOUT use mroe then the 8x bandwidth, and thats only for some things with high end cards like 8800gts. Cards like 1950pro dont show any difference even at 4x bandwidth.

Aside from taht proof, there currently aren't any pci-e2 mobo's and pci-e2 card reviews available to prove it otherwise.

For a while it will be same performance w/e you do.
October 20, 2007 6:48:28 PM

I stand corrected. In my defense, it was all speculation on my part. I don't consider myself the resident expert( ore really halfway decent) on graphic cards, or anything for that matter.
October 20, 2007 6:58:22 PM

lol dw about it, im far from anything to do with expert :D 
October 20, 2007 8:16:50 PM

There will be ZERO performance hit with the initial PCIE-2 Cards.

The reason is that the current top end cards to not come close to bottlenecking on PCIE-1. The PCIE-2 Cards will need to become SIGNIFICANTLY faster to bottleneck in the PCIE-1 slot. The initial PCIE-2 cards will only be minimally faster if faster at all.

(The 8800GT will actually be slower than the 8800GTX. ATIs 2950 if it is even PCIE-2, is not expected to be a revolutionary card.)
