Foxconn prematurely unveils GeForce 8800 GT

When it comes to accidentally revealing products before they're officially announced, Asian hardware makers are repeat offenders. Last month, we saw AMD's Radeon HD 2900 Pro graphics card prematurely unveiled by AMD add-in-board partners HIS and later GeCube. The latest company to further the trend is Foxconn, which has listed an unannounced GeForce 8800 GT graphics card on its website, according to a report by Fudzilla.

The listing appears to have since been taken down, but Fudzilla nevertheless had time to take screenshots of the slip-up. Foxconn's premature offspring bears an FV-N8800GT-512N model number, and the listing mentions an Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT graphics processor with a 600MHz clock speed, 512MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 900MHz, and PCI Express 2.0 support. A product shot also shows the card sporting a single-slot cooler similar to the one we saw in a leaked photo earlier this month.

Interestingly, Foxconn's listing mentions a code-name G96 graphics core and not the G92 that's been rumored to be at the heart of the GeForce 8800 GT for weeks. Fudzilla attributes this oddity to a simple slip-up on Foxconn's part, though.

If the latest rumors are accurate, Nvidia will officially unveil the GeForce 8800 GT on October 29. The card is expected to launch in two flavors, with 256MB and 512MB memory capacities and price tags of $199 and $249, respectively.
