G92 Gets an Upgrade

NVIDIA is following up the wildly popular 8800 GT with a revised 8800 GTS model that has 512MB of memory, 128 stream processors and core and SP speeds higher than an 8800 GTX or Ultra. Don't know what that means? It's fast!

With all of the news surrounding AMD's release of ATI chip specifications, and the growth of open ATI drivers, you might think that nVIDIA cards are lagging behind.  This is not the case, as you can read about on Phoronix as they look at the newest beta driver for Linux released by nVIDIA.  Check out their results from XRender.

After a very turbulent month of November, we are just now getting time to sit and relax and take it all in.  What the hell actually happened last month??!? 

A silently cooled 8800GT?

For the reasons laid out in the beginning of the AnandTech article, the idea of a silently cooled 8800GT seems preposterous, die shrink or not.  The mind pictures a one slot card with a 3 slot passive cooler and heatpipes that extend beyond your case.  As it turns out, this card really isn't that large, and while the temperatures do go well over 100C, the card exhibited no errors after a Crysis torture test.

The EVGA KO Edition Card

The GeForce 8800 GT is one of the most successful graphics chips in recent memory as it was able to marry high speed and low costs. Now if only you could find one! But if you do, how about any overclocked model like this one from EVGA?!

Revenge of the GTS

The new 8800GTS, the 512MB G92 version appeared on TweakTown's doorstep, begging to be tested.  This is the second revision of the 8800GTS, released after the 8800GT that destroyed the first GTS revision in performance and especially on price.  Unfortunately you shouldn't expect this new revision to work in SLI with your original series GTS.

AGEIA's Savior

The AGEIA PhysX mod for the newly released Unreal Tournament is out and we take some time to sit down and play it. Does it make the new $99 price of the PhysX cards more interesting or is it another flop?

XFX's 8800GT Alpha Dog XXX Edition sports a rather lengthy name, and some rather impressive performance.  In the testing Bjorn3D put the card through, it destroyed the GTX and used less power and produced less heat while it was doing it.  The 8800GT in general, and this card in particular, really do offer great value for the money they cost.

Get your overclock on

The Inquirer has some info that makes AMD's HD3870 (and 3850) even more attractive, it overclocks well.  The bad news is that it requires a BIOS flash to unlock, so this is a little more risky than just tweaking frequencies.  It isn't as scary as it sounds, you will need to get used to flashing cards and motherboards if you want to get the most out of your system.
