View Full Version : My 112sp 8800 GTS vs. 8800 GT

I've been looking at benchmark scores for the 8800 GT and compared them with what I've been getting with my new 8800 GTS. I get 9344 in 3DMark 2006, which is a little higher than comparable systems with an 8800 GT. I'm also at 14568 in 3DMark '05 and 31327 in '03. These scores are all in line with the 8800 GT. I haven't tried benchmarking all my games, but I've noticed an overall improvement in FPS over my old 8800 GTS. It's not dramatic, but I'd say it's anywhere between 10 and 15%, depending on the game. I still think the 8800 GTS is dead, as the 8800 GT performs about the same at over $150 less. The only advantage of the 8800 GTS is the quieter fan that is more efficient. Also, the new 8800 GTS can match and slightly exceed the performance of the 8800 GT, but it needs to be cheaper. My GPU also runs at 76C under peak load vs. the older 8800 GTS I had which ran at 81C under peak. I've heard that the 8800 GTS runs very hot, and you can even feel the heat if you touch one of the DVIs on the back of the card while its running.

why did u buy new gts while there is gt exists

gt has better performance at 1280 pixel(since gt could go 700+ mhz with oc)

or 1650 pixel (most of the games)

His GTS is a RMA return for a broken card afaik.

That's correct. It's a replacement card. Not many will buy the GTS when the GT is better. That is, unless you opt for the new GTS.

Maverickman,

Have you seen our requests for you to up load your BIOS from your new card? Help us out brother ;)

On mkvtech someone got the bios by now. They can't force flash it because of different device ID. I bet thewre is a way around that though.

not sure what the bios will get you past a dead video card. The extra stream processors are locked in hardware not software on the old GTS cards. Or was Nvidia not truthful about that? hmmm....

Would you be truthful and tell people that they can unlock something?
I am not saying it is possible. I am saying that nvidia would be the last telling people it is possible for sure though.

I don't know if uploading the BIOS would help anyone with an older 8800 GTS. In fact, you may wreck your card if the BIOS flash goes bad. I would upload my BIOS if I knew how, but the difference I've noticed between my old GTS and the new one is noticable, but not significant. Maybe if I had a decent CPU, I would see more of a difference. Crysis is still great. I can play with just about everything on high except textures, which I've set to medium. Frame rates average about 30-35 sustained.

I keep hearing old vs. new GTS, vs. GT. I have the "old" GTS and it performs extremely well.....3Dmark06 - 10836, Crysis all settings high @1400x900 rez with VERY smooth gameplay. No reason to switch to GT IMHO, not an upgrade based on what my card can do.

i may even be a little CPU limited, so a an upgrade there would probably give me even better performance.:D

Sorry to distract your thread, but how do you like that HP monitor?

Maverickman

The HP monitor is very good. I'd like to have a 24-inch model, but they're a bit too much $$$. Also, I'd have to run at 1920X1200 native resolution which may be too much for my system with games like Crysis.
