We've brought you oodles of leaked specifications and rumors regarding Nvidia's upcoming GeForce 8800 GT graphics cards over the past few weeks, and we've now stumbled upon the proverbial icing on the cake: performance numbers. Chinese site Expreview has gotten its hands on 3DMark05 and 3DMark06 performance scores for a GeForce 8800 GT model with 512MB of memory. According to the site's screenshots, the 8800 GT scored 19881 in 3DMark05 at 1024x768, and 12072 in 3DMark06 at 1280x1024.
Expreview says the test system was outfitted with a Core 2 Duo E6600 processor overclocked to 3.6GHz, a motherboard with an Nvidia nForce 650i Ultra chipset, 2GB of DDR2-800 memory running with 5-5-5-15 timings, Windows XP Service Pack 2, and ForceWare 167.26 graphics drivers.
If genuine, those results are certainly impressive. For reference, our GeForce 8800 Ultra scored 11976 on a different system with a 2.93GHz Core 2 Extreme CPU, an nForce 680i SLI mobo, 4GB of low-latency DDR2-800 RAM, and Windows Vista Ultimate x86.
