There are a lot of rumblings about the NVIDIA 9600 GT today, and not all of it from NVIDIA and its partners.  First up, AMD has apparently been on the war trail talking about how the company is "not fazed by impending Nvidia 9600 launch" and that it has "had cards offering similar, if not better, features on the market for the past three months."  This all comes from Digitimes, that also points out that the 9600 GT will lack features like DX10.1 support, integrated DVI-to-HDMI supp

The EVGA e-GeForce 8800 GS 384 MB offers a nice challenge to the HD3850, and even the 3870 in some cases.  With a 550MHz GPU and 800MHz RAM, it can keep up with most of it's competitors, the cutbacks happened in the bus width which has been throttled back to 192 bit.  With a bit of work, TechPowerUp!

The Tech Report was paying close attention during nVIDIA's 4th quarter conference call, and caught mention of physics processing coming to certain nVIDIA cards.  After further discussions, it turns out that any card with CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) will be able to start doing physics processing with a tweak to the software, no hardware changes necessary.  The good news is that all 8800 series cards use CUDA, meaning that any and all of those cards are capable of physics processing using their GPUs.

NVIDIA 9600 GT to be offered with 1GB of memory

If this news from Fudzilla is true, then some partners of NVIDIA are going to offer 1GB versions of the 9600 GT.  Let me say that again - 1GB of frame buffer on a card with mid-range performance.  If this is true, and performance differences between the 512MB and 1GB versions are what I am guessing they will be (~0-1%), this could be the worst idea I've heard in a long time.

The WC in BFGTech's 8800 GTS 512MB OC2 WC Edition stands for water cooling.  This card isn't one of those self contained coolers either, this is built to be added into an existing water cooling loop, so those with powerful custom built cooling systems might see better performance than the 700 MHz GPU, 1.94 GHz RAM and 1728 MHz stream processors.  [H]ard|OCP managed to push it to 800 MHz for the GPU and the RAM to 2.22 GHz, and kept it BELOW 50C!  See what gains they got fro
