NVIDIA "G80" Retail Details Unveiled

| Posted: Oct 5, 2006 4:49 am

Interested to learn more about NVIDIA's upcoming next-gen monster, G80? The Dailytech have just posted up the most accurate information available on them to date. Stamped as "GeForce 8800" series cards, these will be NVIDIA's first DX-10 based graphics cards to hit the market next month (just in time for Vista! which is also around the corner).

 

Full details here and here, and if you havent seen them already there was a bunch of pictures of G80 cards distributed on the net earlier this week too (and what MASSIVE cards they are!).

 


DailyTech received its first looks at GeForce 8800 production sample today, and by the looks of it, the card is a monster: at least with regard to size and power requirements.

 

The GeForce 8800 comes in two flavors, which we will get into more detail about over the course of the next few days. Both cards are dual-slot PCIe cards measuring a little less than nine inches in length. The first card, the GeForce 8800GTX, is the full blown G80 experience. The GeForce 8800GTS is a cut down version of the first.
