I have looked at several sites for apples to apples of these two cards. I have seen the GTS 512 Vs the old GTS 640 and 320 but not a GTS 512 Vs a GTX. I see lots of people saying that the GTS 512 is faster than a GTX, but I have yet to see benchies that back that up.

8800GTS 512
256 bit
128 SP's
512MB RAM
650 Core
1625 Shader
970 Mem
64 GB/sec bandwidth

8800GTX
384 bit
128 SP's
768MB RAM
575 Core
1350 Shader
900 Mem
86.4 GB/sec bandwidth

Of course 8800GTS 512 are faster than 8800GTX up to 4xAA but accorded to some members of this forums struggled to run Crysis with 16xAA probably because it limited to 256bit bus. Crysis ran great with 16xAA on my 384bit 8800GTX.

You say "Of course 8800GTS 512 are faster" but I only see faster clock speeds. The GTX has more RAM, wider bus, and more bandwidth. I still would like to see both side-by-side in some benchies.

I can see that a GTS 512 might would be faster than the GTX at up to 1280x1024. But wouldn't higher resolutions (1600x1200 and up) play nicer with the higher bandwidth and memory of the GTX? I would expect the AA and AF to effect both cards the same.

Supposedly the GTS 512 is faster than the GTX as long as the res. is below 1920x and/or AA is set 4x or below. Otherwise you're limited by available video memory, and thus the GTX gets ahead.

I got 2 of those GTX's and its plenty of power for any game out for some time.

Their getting cheaper and have more ram to them.

Our run-through in the graphs below involves 10 minutes of gameplay in “Assault_Crysis” the Harbor map. This map includes the transition from night to day, tons of explosions, particles, physics, AI interaction and water.

8800GTS 512 is slower than 8800GTX

Thanks man! I had not seen those benchies.

Those benchmarks tell an interesting story. Though it is not a truly apples to apples test (they run higher settings on the GTX), it does provide food for thought.

Want it all? 8800GTX or 8800 Ultra
can live with 98% max settings - 8800 GTS 512
can live with 90% max settings - 8800 GT

And of course I mean single card solutions. If you have an 8800GTX or Ultra, no need to downgrade to a GTS or GT.

GTS 512 = faster canned benchmarking
GTX\Ultra = smoother gaming

For the price, I'd still probably go with the GTS.

I agree with this, cause if i see another gts vs gtx thread i will :headexplode:

It really depends on the resolution. Up to 1280x1024, the gts 512 is just as fast as the gtx w/ af (w/o af, it can even be a little bit slower).
With a resolution of 1650x1080 (or 1600x1200) and above though, w/ aa and af, the gtx has a clear edge over the gts 512.

If I were on a 1680x monitor or less and buying right now I'd get a cheap 8800GT and OC it to 660-700. It won't be as fast as the GTS or GTX and it will still put up perfectly playable FPS with moderate filtering. If I bothered with "Crysis" I'd run it on the DX 9 path with a combination of high and medium settings. Probably, high-texture, object, shader, water, and the rest on medium. The below review just has a stock 8800GT in it. Go through and look @ 1600x to see what I mean-

This older one shows an overclocked GT-

no it didn't. not with 16xAA.

Running at higher resolutions such as 1920x1200 with 4xFSAA and 16x aniso,I would give the edge to the 8800GTX ,simple because more ram ,wider buss,plus more bandwidth,but the 8800GTS 512mb is as low as $299 and the 8800GTX is around $445,so it comes down to is the 8800GTX worth the $150 more then the 8800GTS 512mb.But the AMD 3870 x2 for $445 is looking good at high resolutions with FSAA and aniso.

My prefered online shop here in sweden had 500 of the XFX GeForce 8800GTX 600M 768MB in stock for 359$.My gf got one for her new pc but then they raised the price again to 420$ a week ago before i had a chance to by myself another one for SLI :thumbdwn: Oh well,perhaps its wiser to save my money for the next highend single gpu card instead of paying allmost full price for a GTX.

For higher res + more AA the GTX is faster thanks to its mem bandwidth.
