Nvidia launches $299 GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB
A new GeForce 8800 GTS graphics card with 320MB of memory has joined Nvidia's GeForce 8 lineup. Just like the GeForce 8800 GTS that launched last November, the new model has 96 stream processors, a 500MHz core clock speed, a 1.2GHz shader speed, an 800MHz memory speed, and a 320-bit memory bus. However, the card has 320MB of memory instead of 640MB, and Nvidia's recommended retail price is $299-349, or about $100 cheaper than the older model.
As is now frequent with Nvidia's graphics card launches, the GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB is not only available, but available with little to no price premium. Newegg has eVGA, Leadtek, and XFX flavors of the new card in stock for $299.99, and "factory overclocked" variants like this BFG model can be had for a few bucks more.
We expect to have a review of the GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB up shortly.
