In related news, The Inquirer have an array of shots featuring the board’s naked PCB, and G92 die (not G96, Foxconn!).

When compared to the 8600GTS, this chip is way bigger (and better), and sure will pack the punch for DX10.0 titles. The PCB itself is *very* similar to GeForce 8800GTS, with only minor modifications made in order to fit the 256-bit memory controller on the board. The G80 chip comes with 384-bit memory controller, while this cheaper but highly-efficient 256-bit one is more friendly to the amount of video memory. Game devs complained about 768MB quite a lot, and we remember how 1GB XT cards walked all over Ultra in highest resolutions.
