XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB Review - Page 1 of 6

INTRODUCTION

A little over a month ago we looked at NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 GT Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), which brought the high-end performance of the GeForce 8800 Series down to mainstream prices. Building on the success of the GeForce 8800 GT, NVIDIA today is lauching the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB.

Unlike the 320MB and 640MB models of the GeForce 8800 GTS that debuted last November, the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB is manufactured using a smaller 65nm fabrication process and a scaled back 256-bit memory bus.

Compared to the GeForce 8800 GT, the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB features 128 stream processors along with higher core, shader, and memory clock speeds. The XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB Alpha Dog Edition we received was running at 678MHz core, 1700MHz shader, and 986MHz memory.

Specifications Comparison

The GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB also features a dual-slot cooling solution, which gives it an edge over the GeForce 8800 GT with lower GPU temperatures and less fan noise.
