    The NEW 8800GTS - Its almost here...Look!

    GeForce 8 Series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Judging by those figures its going to leave the GT's as well as the old GTS's well behind. Looks like even the GTX may struggle to keep up with it.

    Roll on December 3rd.

    Going to be around $250-300 so should drop in here now at around £200-220.

    Just a thought......do you think the lack of 8800GT's is anything to do with the fact that this new GTS is on its way and the priorites for nVidia are lying with that? I dunno but its possible.

    Sounds good to me. They will probably charge more like £250+ at first though.

    wtf...

    Power consumption:

    140W

    That's just ridiculous for a single card. I'm going to wait for some kind of optimised card to come out that doesn't use the energy of several suns. (In the meantime, heating up my PC so I can use it as a cooker)

    That's nothing, the 8800GTX uses 177W.

    If the price is reasonable then yes.

    Re: The NEW 8800GTS - Its almost here...Look!

    I'm not convinced that the wikipedia is accurate, given that the rumour mill places the 8800GTS far more frequently as using the G80 core with the main difference being the extra stream processors unlocked and the memory speed boosted a little.

    You didn't look hard enough. The source for the Wiki story is.... the Inquirer!

    The way I see it, it should bring the GT to the price it should be - and probably balance the supply/demand if there are enough who will pay more for more. If the price leans toward the lower side of the £200-220, then I can actually see the bang for buck to be competitive with the GT (but I suspect staffsMike estimate is going to be closer). The only thing I find it odd is that if the story is true, then they are really releasing the entire line of the G92 mid-up, rather than top down. I find this weird for two reasons: first, it means that the new, lower priced part is going to step over into the territory of the upper end part for less money (GT did so with the GTS, and the new GTS could do so to the GTX). Demand is higher towards the mid-range than top range, so they may once again run into chip shortage. And third, in some way, releasing the flagship first makes a statement of the generation's performance (I suppose that the GT did that too in a way).
