NVIDIA has officially unveiled the specs for their upcoming 8800 GTX/GTS graphics cards. The GTX will boast a “G80” processing core (575-MHz), 768MB of GDDR3 (900-MHz) memory, 86GB/s memory bandwidth, 384-bit memory bus, 128 unified shaders @ 1350-MHz, and a 38.4-billion pixels per second “theoretical fill rate.” While the GTS sports a “G80” processing core (500-MHz), 640MB of GDDR3 (900-MHz) memory, 64GB/s memory bandwidth, and 96 unified shaders @ 1200-MHz. Pricing and availability have not yet been announced.
Both cards are HDCP compliant and SLI capable, and they require 450 and 400 watt power supply units, respectively. The cards are also, of course, DirectX 10 compatible, so we should be seeing some performance gains beyond the mere horsepower gains — which are immense in themselves
