8800GS vs 9600GT vs HD3850 256MB & 512MB & more

In case anyone searched for a comparison of these (like I did), I thought this Fudzilla review was worth posting. They do use multiple driver versions unfortunatly. But Quite a few games and Lots of cards including the 8800GS, which is of interest with current $130-150 price tag. They don't specify but I believe they use the evga 8800GS and their reference clocks (based on their 8800GS talks) are 550/1600(effective) like the evga uses. Reference 9600GT beats reference 8800GS, but not by alot. And the 8800GS does a good job against the HD3850's.

  1. i dont understand anyghing .. the colours are so mixed up @_@
  2. Yeah, the difference in the shade isn't large enough so we can tell them apart easily.

    The 8800GS does look great. I almost mistaken it for the 8600GT due to the coloring though.

    You obviously missed this http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/249032-15-nvidia-shady-trick-boost-geforce-9600gt
    hardly a Reference 9600GT with this going on.

    Yeah, good point. By reference I meant claimed reference clock speeds as opposed to the OC'ed one being reviewed. I'm just very interested in seeing all the great sub $200 cards pitted against each other. Too bad this one didn't have the 8800GTS 320MB and 8800GT 256MB too though.

    Yes I agree and failed to mention that. I needed to take my time making sure I was comparing the right cards in my head.

    Thanks for the link.
  8. This is getting ridiculous if i wasn't an ATI fan (thats not to say fanboy: thats differant) this would help send me that way. What i mean is the total lack of clarity on Nvidias part, Take the 8800GT/s how many different versions of what seems to be the same card ? Now we end up having the potential of buying a GPU that will under perform on our Motherboards without a clue as to why. (Not now though thanks to some due diligence) Apparently this has been happening since the 7900 series.
    I never had one but I'm willing to bet that they were great overclockers ?
    I really dont understand why thy didnt sing this from the rooftops, people say there is not a lot except SLI or Crossfire to recomend one Motherboard ove another, well this seems like a good marketable reason to me, so why didnt they ? (market it that is)
