Today we see the NVIDIA DX10 beasts the 8800GTS and 8800GTX released into the wild with new speeds.
I think one of the more interesting jumps has to be with the shader clock at 100MHz up on the GTS side. Normally we see 25 - 50 peak overclocks but it seems BFG found a sweet spot for consumers bringing the GTS near 8800GTX speed specs.
BFG NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX OC 768MB:
- Core Clock: 600MHz vs standard 575MHz.
- Shader Clock: 1400MHz vs standard 1350MHz.
BFG NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS OC 640MB:
- Core Clock: 550MHz vs standard 500MHz.
· Shader Clock: 1300MHz vs standard 1200MHz.
Those interested in upgrading to the 8800 series might be inclined to wait it out just a bit more. The 8800 GTX will be coming in at $699 with the little brother the GTS running right in at $449. Even with the memory difference that's still a pretty interesting prospect for potential buyers that were on the fence about what to do.
