DX10 shows up in the form of GeForce 8800GTX and 8800GTS (catchty), more at dailytech

DailyTech's hands-on with the GeForce 8800 series continues with more information about the GPU and the retail boards. The new NVIDIA graphics architecture will be fully compatible with Microsoft’s upcoming DirectX 10 API with support for shader model 4.0, and represents the company's 8th generation GPU in the GeForce family.

NVIDIA has code-named G80 based products as the GeForce 8800 series. While the 7900 and 7800 series launched with GT and GTX suffixes, G80 will do away with the GT suffix. Instead, NVIDIA has revived the GTS suffix for its second fastest graphics product—a suffix that hasn’t been used since the GeForce 2 days.

NVIDIA’s GeForce 8800GTX will be the flagship product. The core clock will be factory clocked at 575 MHz. All GeForce 8800GTX cards will be equipped with 768MB of GDDR3 memory, to be clocked at 900 MHz. The GeForce 8800GTX will also have a 384-bit memory interface and deliver 86GB/second of memory bandwidth. GeForce 8800GTX graphics cards are equipped with 128 unified shaders clocked at 1350 MHz. The theoretical texture fill-rate is around 38.4 billion pixels per second.

Slotted right below the GeForce 8800GTX is the slightly cut-down GeForce 8800GTS. These graphics cards will have a G80 GPU clocked at a slower 500 MHz. The memory configuration for GeForce 8800GTS cards slightly differ from the GeForce 8800GTX. GeForce 8800GTS cards will be equipped with 640MB of GDDR3 graphics memory clocked at 900 MHz. The memory interface is reduced to 320-bit and overall memory bandwidth is 64GB/second. There will be fewer unified shaders with GeForce 8800GTS graphics cards. 96 unified shaders clocked at 1200 MHz are available on GeForce 8800GTS graphics cards.

Additionally GeForce 8800GTX and 8800GTS products are HDCP compliant with support for dual dual-link DVI, VIVO and HDTV outputs. All cards will have dual-slot coolers too. Expect GeForce 8800GTX and 8800GTS products to launch the second week of November 2006. This will be a hard launch as most manufacturers should have boards ready now.
As for the power requirements, link here.

The marketing material included with the card claims NVIDIA requires at least a 450W power supply for a single GeForce 8800GTX, and 400W for the 8800GTS. Top tier vendors in Taiwan have already confirmed with DailyTech that GeForce 8800 cards in SLI mode will likely carry a power supply "recommendation" of 800W.
Woot woot!
When they say 450/400 do they mean for the whole system or just for the card? Because some were saying as high as 300W for a single card and this seems to be for the whole system...

Read the first reply off the linky, it's funny:

This is great news. For $300, I can buy a great 1300watt psu and then spend the amount of money I would on a new heating system on these cards in SLI mode. I'm hoping they have a Quad Configuration as well because I need to exhaust the entire side of the case directly into my AC Ducts and I need the extra fan power to push it upstairs, and I want it to be as warm and toasty as possible. I may just have to put all silent heat sinks and setup a warning monitory system to generate EVEN MORE HEAT and then use an external exhaust fan to whiff it up into the house.

I am very happy that such technology can provide true comfort for the family room in the upstairs where we will stream video to for the family visits.
In the basement, where this will be, I may have to wear shorts to keep from sweating too much, but it will be worth it.

The Pentium 4 Extreme Edition doesn't, by itself, generate the amount of heat to warm more than an entire basement, but Intel Technology together with Nvidia push the Thermal Envelope to new heights, and I thank them, and my cat thanks the.

Nvidia wouldn't do that just yet though. They need to make some revenue to cover their costs + research. They'll wait a while to release a new line, as always....

I'm going to be killing 2 birds with one stone in the winter because the PC will be not only a space heater for half the house but a sick game machine too.

I already keep my room at a constant 30C just imagine the possiblitys with a G80 or even 2!

just like they did w/ the R5** series, right?

X1800 was good but soon got whupped by Nvidia, so they released the X1900, semi-whupped Nvidia, lol. Sry, I'm a bit of an Nvidia fan .

let's hope that never becomes a trend for ATi...

OH MAN! My X1900GT is obsolete. Oh well, my wallet is booked for a trip to the cemetary now .

that's a bit toasty isn't it? that's like 80F(therabout, i think)

I'm usally most comfortable at 73-75F.

When me and my friend are gaming on both of my PCs in my non-enclosed office area it has gotten up to 80F with the rest of the house closer to 71-75.

sry, its a bit off topic....

My rig's keeping me warm right now.

I'm startin' to doubt nVidia... and what's with the effed up RAM quantities? 768Mbs of RAM? What the hell, I want a full gig!
post #20 of 93
Yes , 768 Mb of RAM is weird!
I'm gonna start saving money for a second PSU, because that card should kill the one i have now....
And i'm goona also start planning on a mod to adapt a Big Thyphoon on a 8800GTX , that should keep her Coool
