NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce 8800GT graphics card is due for release in a little less than two weeks from now, but Foxconn jumped the gun a bit by posting up a product page outlining all the details of their variant including an image of what the card will look like.

Not surprisingly, NVIDIA stepped in quickly and has since requested Foxconn remove the page. However, the sly dogs at TechConnect made sure to get a screen cap of the product page before it was pulled. You can view it here.

With the release of the GeForce 8800 GT less than two weeks away Foxconn has let the new card slip onto its website, complete with specs and board images. Foxconn's card used Nvidia's standard design and it features a 600 MHz core clock and 512MB of GDDR3 at 1800 MHz. As already rumored, the card will be PCI-Express 2.0 compliant and will feature full HDCP support. Foxconn's site has the chip of the 8800 GT as being G96 but as other images leaked earlier confirm the card will be powered by one G92 GPU. And now we wait.
