nVIDIA has been hinting that the 320MB versions of their cards don't have much time left in the channel.  That doesn't mean that they, or their partners, are slacking off.  Case and point is the XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB Fatal1ty up for review at The Hardware Zone.  With a core clock set 150MHz above stock and the RAM a full 400MHz above stock there is some serious competition for the 8800 GTX 320MB version.

Push the button and it goes faster, or at least that is the theory behind MSI's NX8600GT Twin Turbo.  Hardware Zone reviews the card, at the normal speeds and with the Turbo button pushed.  There is definitely a difference in performance, mostly thanks to the overclocking of the stream processors, but it does leave me with a question.  Who is going to buy this card and not push the Turbo button?
