Many of you (mostly 8800 GTS owners) have been wondering how many shader processors the G92 has, ever since we first heard of such a chip. It has now been confirmed by Nvidia that the 8800 GT will boast 112 shader processors - the same amount as the recently bumped 640MB GTS. The shaders are clocked at 1.5 GHz, and accompany the board's 256-bit GDDR3 memory running at 900MHz.

i wasent really paying attention to the whole 8800 GTS 320 deal so can someone tell me, is the GT all around better than the GTS 320 or worse?

The 320MB GTS has 96 SP's - as opposed to the GT's 112 SP's (the 640MB version also has 112).
Shaders on GTS are 1.2GHz - GT is 1.5GHz.
Clocks for GTS are 500/800MHz - GT 600/900MHz ? (unconfirmed)
AIB's can choose memory size for GT; most likely 256 or 512 MB
Memory bus is 320-bit on GTS - or 256-bit on GT
GTS is 90nm - 65nm for GT
And price: 320MB GTS is US $264 (after rebate) and is GT is $199-249 USD ?

As for 3Dmark 06 - the GTS would score ~8500 at stock (someone confirm) - the GT reportedly scores 10,769.

The GT also supports PCI Express 2.0, HDMI, PureVideo Gen 3 and Display Port. (DX10.1 should probably be in there too, i think?)

And while I'm at it, the G98 core will apparently replace the 8600 series....

So its better? Aww man!!! Why does this happen EVERY time I buy a piece of new hardware. *runs off and cries*

O.k, madness over now.

It looks like a fantastic card, wouldn't mind SLi'ing those 8800GTs :p

:D lol Gareth.

On paper the card is much better - although remember that the core/memory clocks aren't confirmed. Only time will tell. The main advantage of the G92/G98 is as i said before, PCI Express 2.0 and DX10.1. If you remember a few months back, AMD will be releasing a new HD 2600 series in January that supports the above features.

If anyone's about to buy a new DX10 board now - JUST DON'T!!! The GPU industry is too unstable right now! The only boards that aren't being altered are the 8800 GTX and Ultra, although we think a new higher end board is being planned...
