The day we've all been waiting for has finally come. It's time to get down and boogy with G80 peeps. Yup, that DirectX 10 monster we've all been hearing a lot about in recent times has officially hit town today and its one MEEEEEAAAAN sonoabitch.

The card comes in two flavours, the king of the hill GeForce 8800 GTX, and slightly lower spec'd 8800 GTS. Either card puts anything concurrently on the market to total shame, as you'll witness via the mass of coverage starting to flood the web with benchies galore and what not.

If interested, have a read of NVIDIA's official press release on G80 over at their press room, or just hop straight to all the coverage below.
