Introduction

To say we loved the new GeForce GTS might be a little bit of an understatement.

Like we mentioned though, as good as the GTS is, it will be the top dog GTX that will set the whole Hot or Not for the next 6 months, as we prepare for the release of the R600 from ATI.

With the NDA lifting for a little now the general perspective is that the GeForce 8800 GPU series is a real winner. Performance is excellent but not only that, the amount of technology that is packed into the cards is also amazing.

Today we will be having a look at another GeForce GTS graphics card though this time from XFX but also the GTX from XFX as well. GeForce GTX while having all intentions of being available on launch day, due to a slight problem with one of the resistors, meant that a world wide recall delayed the card a little longer then people had hoped.

No doubt the cards are trickling back into the US now but for people in other countries, we have to wait a little longer as those couriers take their sweet time to return them back to us. So, we've already established that the GTS kicks ass but let's now compare both the latest GPU's from nVidia and see where we stand.
