Hello All. NVIDIA has officially launched their new high-end 3D Graphics card that has full support for DX10 and Shader Model 4.0. The GeForce 8800 series is fully tested and showcased at HotHardware and its performance is nothing short of impressive. With up to 128 Stream Processors under its hood, up to 86GB/s of memory bandwidth at its disposal and comprised of a whopping 681 million transistors, it's no wonder the new GPU rips up the benchmarks like no tomorrow.

I may trade in my 7950gx2 for one. There's lots of driver issues for that card (NFS carbon for one) that really make me want to shell out the extra $ for an 8800gtx. Plus, I hear that the new DirectX is going to be way, way less processor intensive than DX9, so that means I won't have to spend $700 on a new setup right now.

No Heat Meter for the reference card, Eric. We'll dole out some rating on retail-samples though.

Do you know whether of not either of them will work with the ASUS A8N-SLi Premium MOBO? If so, hook me up!

That board should run these cards fine, Young.
