DailyTech - But Wait, There's More NVIDIA G92 for 2007

NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 GT might be remembered as one of the most successful NVIDIA graphics cards of our time, at least according to the flurry of reviews this week. Virtually every top tier e-tailer managed to sell out of the card in less than two days. Yet NVIDIA isn't done yet. A G92-derivative will appear later this year with even more shader units. According to company guidance, the new G92 will launch in early December and feature 128 shader units as opposed to the 112 featured on GeForce 8800 GT. This would be mean the additional 16 shader units exist on all GeForce 8800 GT cards, but are disabled for yield or marketing purposes. In addition to the extra shaders, the new G92 will also feature higher core frequencies and support for up to 1GB GDDR3. The new 65nm G92 has a tentative SKU designation of GeForce 8800 GTS. This might sound confusing as NVIDIA already sports a GeForce 8800 GTS card based on the 90nm G80 silicon. However, since G92 sports a 256-bit memory interface, the new 8800 GTS cards will feature traditional memory blocks of 512MB or 1024MB. The older, G80-based GeForce 8800 GTS features 320-bit memory blocks of 320MB or 640MB. As the new GeForce 8800 GT generally outpaces the existing GeForce 8800 GTS, the new GeForce 8800 GTS will likely surpass NVIDIA's high-end GeForce 8800 GTX and potentially GeForce 8800 Ultra. NVIDIA doesn't just risk cannibalizing its own high-end offerings -- AMD's launch schedule for Radeon HD 3800 (RV670) is slated for just a few days before NVIDIA's G92 re-launch. AMD corporate guidance suggests the company will launch its Phenom desktop processor and RD790 desktop chipset simultaneously with its new graphics offering.

I can't say I'm surprised, however using the model number of a current card will be confusing to many who are just starting to learn how to build a system.

I've heard that nVidia is coming out with a 8800 GX2 graphics card. Is that true? I wonder how much it will cost and how much memory it will have. Not to long ago they had a GX2 card that had 1GB of vRAM that was worth 800+ dollars. Hmmmmm.

If they name it 8800GTS its going to confuse alot of people, not just people learning to build their systems.

This should be the 8900 series i think.

The manufacturers are likely to be happy about the more traditional memory blocks and it having one less bus (4 instead of 5). It'll be easier and cheaper to build. At 65nm, it'll probably require a bit less power too. I'm sure the price will remain around the same as the current 8800GTS if not a little cheaper due to the cut in manufacturing costs.

Darn! Right as I was about to make a choice on which graphics card to get... I'm going to have to research this one too.

I knew I should have waited a few months before building a new system.

The market seems rather confusing lately, specially for an intermediate like me. :uhm:

I wonder how much the prices for the "old" GTS and the GT will drop.
