Asus roll-out 8800 GT equipped with 1GB memory
Even a powerful GPU can suffer from bottlenecks due to slow and insufficient video memory, therefore memory size is very important. The more memory installed on a video card, the more data it can store, and thus there is no need to utilize slower access to the PC RAM. With most current and upcoming games requiring high video memory requirements; plus the fact that game developers still constantly increasing the estimated video memory size, users will require the combination of memory size and speed even more to reach the ultimate performance ? making the 1GB GDDR3 memory from Qimonda even more important.
For the time being, this appears to be an Asus exclusive as no such board is yet listed on Nvidia’s site.
