The already confusing suffixes on nVIDIA's video cards got even more confusing with the release of a GT that out performed the GTS model. Usually they run GT --> GTS -->GTX --> Ultra, but with the switch to G92 the GT outperformed the GTS, except when the extra memory of the GTS can be utilized. The new G92 8800GTS has trimmed the memory down from 640MBs to the more usual 512MBs as well as some other nice speed improvements that placed it in it's proper spot in [H]ard|OCP'

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.

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?!

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.
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?
