nVidia Launches 320MB GeForce 8800 GTS

A welcome escape from 3GSM...

When I talk about graphics cards I’m probably on my least secure footing but with the endless torrent of handsets splashed forth from 3GSM this week I’m delighted to get this change of topic.

An affordable 320MB edition of nVidia’s GeForce high end 8800 GTS is the card making the headlines and with an RRP of well under £200 it should bring cutting edge gaming to a wider audience.


As for the specs they make good reading: 500MHz core clock frequency, 96 unified shaders zipping along at 1.2GHz and 1.6GHz effective memory. All this equates to a mighty 26.4bn texels per second and a massive 64GBps of memory bandwidth. For multimedia fans you’ll be pleased to know the card is HDCP enabled and offers up dual DVI-I and is VGA capable via a DVI to VGA converter. As for gamers they obviously get Vista-friendly DirectX 10 compatibility.


Naturally all the usual suspects have made an appearance with offerings from ECS (£155 ex VAT), EVGA (349 euros), PNY (£174.90), Albatron, XFX and Leadtek (the last three withheld pricing). Meanwhile Foxconn is releasing vanilla and overclocked versions of the card. It claims the latter provides between 10 and 15 per cent more performance and will retail for £210 excluding VAT.


All cards go on sale now and take a look below for a selection of their Manga-obsessed-teenage-fantasy-artwork below.
