Update: We've just run benchmark tests of the 8800GTS in Crysis under Windows XP with DirectX 9.
Also worth noting is that we've carried over our Crysis test results from when we had both an 8800GTX and Ultra in our lab. You will find these results on page 18.
As I wander over to the door on a typical Tuesday afternoon I'm greeted by the usual fellow, a courier! With a box in hand and PDA for me to sign I was expecting what was just going to be another run of the mill sample.
Generally speaking, I see who it's shipped from and remember what exactly it is before I put it in a pile which has an imaginary "To Do" sign above it; but this was different. The name written on it was unfamiliar to me, so I open the white box not knowing what to expect and low and behold, there is a note!
Below that note was a graphics card, and not just any old graphics card, oh no! This is the highly anticipated 8800GTS 512MB G92!
The only other item was a CD which had drivers on it. This is the story of the new G92 based 8800GTS, so sit back and be prepared to be taken on an adventure of fast graphics cards and even faster results.
Clearly I had a mission ahead, and of course have chosen to accept!
