GeForce 8600 GTS to have 32 stream processors?
The folks at OCWorkbench have gotten hold of some detailed specifications for Nvidia's upcoming GeForce 8600 GTS and GeForce 8600 GT graphics cards. According to their sources, the GeForce 8600 GTS and GT will both have 32 stream processors. That's a third as many as Nvidia's existing GeForce 8800 GTS and GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB cards, which both have 96 stream processors.
OCWorkbench also says the GeForce 8600 GTS will have a stock core clock speed of 675MHz as well as 256MB of GDDR3 memory, which will run at a stock speed of 1GHz and pump data through a 128-bit bus. That said, the site claims that most retail cards will be overclocked to a core speed of 700MHz and a memory speed of 1.2GHz. The GeForce 8600 GTS will reportedly have maximum power draw of 71W, while the GeForce 8600 GT will only sip up to 43W.
