I'm assuming that's NVIDIA's new DX10.1 architecture?

It's Nvidia's new GPU chip, used on the new 8800GT that is being raved about. It uses a smaller 65nm die which is more efficient thermally and performance to watt ratio and yes, it's DX10.1 compatible. What's odd though is there is talk of them not using this GPU in the new 8800GTS SSC cards, instead staying with the current GPU, which is baffling to me.

Do you think feb-march will be a good time to update to dx10 . Also has vista got rid of its flaws yet.

Didn't they come out last week or the week prior? I know of a good dozen or so folks in another tech forum I visit who already have the new 8800GT.

And why they didn't call this card an 8900GT is also baffling to me. It's a very confusing lineup for the 8 series now.

8800GT is the right name because: the old GTS is history now and the new GTS will beat 8800GT so it will be Ultra>GTX>GTS>GT

I think they should call that new card an 8900GTS as not to confuse it with the older 320/640mb models. That would make perfect sense, much like they did with the 7 series cards. It's just odd what they're doing with these new cards that are substantially different in performance yet calling them the same thing.

To me a new series means a new GPU. Instead they went and put a new GPU on a lesser model (GT) of the current series, yet the new GTS (a higher model than GT) gets the same GPU all the other 8000s are using. If that makes sense I must not speak Nvidian, nor have I ever been to planet Nvidia. None the less, may the GeForce be with you!

Nvidia probably figures that the changes in memory bus architecture and more traditional memory blocks will be enough to differentiate between old and new. I agree, it's confusing though. Maybe not so much for tech-savvy folks, but for n00bs....
