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!

It would appear that its possible the 9600 GT is seeing FURTHER delays and a possible recall, at least according to this story at The Inquirer. There is no reason given for the delay.

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.

A little experiment over at CPU3D has turned up some very interesting information, you can link an HD3870 and an HD3850 together in Crossfire, with no extra work! They could only test the single core version of the HD3870, so it

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
While we took an initial look at the 3850 some months ago, we had the chance to do a full review on VisionTek's 3850 offering. Does it trump other boards based on the reference design, or does the tremendous value of the HD 3850 overshadow all?
