Very intresting card coming out in a few days from nvidia. I'm very suprised by its performance.

Yes pretty impressive considering its price. In Crysis @ 1600 x 1200 its almost at the same level of a 8800gt. I'm still hanging on for the 9800 GX2 though! Lets hope the price is as good!

Nice Card!
Now to see the price.

I've seen the 8800GT 512mb for as low as $199 on SlickDeals.
($209 for a good brand.)

Theres something slightly 'iffy' about that review me feels. Put it this way, the 8800gt looks a bit pointless now in comparison, how does a 4 ROP card do that??

Hats of too tweaktown though for moving to a more current set of games, and full version ones not just demos aswell.

Remember, the results are from a slightly OC'd 9600GT vs a Stock 8800GT card.

Also, this card will only be about $20-$30 less than the 8800GT.
($180MSRP I read someplace, but who knows what that will really mean.)

This is a new core (G94) so some improvement is to be expected.
The place it likely puts the 8800GT is to be replaced by the 9800GT at some point not too far in the future.

It's actually 16 rops. That program doesn't recognize new chips.

9600gt has everthing a G92 8800gts has minus 64 SP.

They used the new 17X drivers for the 9600GT which supposedly perform a good bit better than the 169s. An apples to apples comparison this is not.

They also claim that the OC'd card has a slower than stock shader clock :??:

tweaktown is a bit iffy in general, but its quick at getting news and reviews out. Either way the differernce 64 shaders makes in the 8800gt appears to be pretty poo, so I'd like to see some more reviews.

Anyway looks like a good card.

Interesting, can't wait to see reviews of the higher-end cards!

Hope it's not overpriced. 8800gt can be had for $200 after rebate. Or $230 without.

I agree with the hats off for using a more current set of games for testing. Maybe Tom's will get the hint and finally update their VGA charts to current games as well.
