[Fudzilla]Review of Gainward 8800GTS with 1GB Vram

Like the 8800GT, it looks like Gainward has made a 1GB version of the 8800GTS and Fudzilla reviewed it. It looks like a slightly better solution for people playing at higher resolutions then the 512mb version.

Company of Heroes seems to like Gainward, as it scored up to 18% better than reference 8800 GTS cards. Of course, we’re talking about our overclocked card. Straight out of the box, 8800 GTS GS 1024MB beats dual-chip Radeon called HD 3870 X2. The overclocked card scored exactly 100 fps at 1920x1440.

In Crysis, Gainward’s 8800 GTS 1GB started showing its muscle only at unplayable 1600x1200 resolution where antialiasing got a boost from additional memory. Maybe two SLI cards would have been a blessing at these resolutions and high game settings. Gainward outperforms the reference 8800 GTS by 22%.

Gainward keeps surprising us with innovative products and BLISS 8800 GTS GS card with 1GB memory deserves to be mentioned, since it’s currently among the top products in the offer. However, we can’t help but wonder what the result would have been if there were more games that use this much memory to its fullest potential. Newer titles should utilize additional memory better, but that’s not the case.

I don't know if I should trust Fudzilla, but even if it is close to matching a 3870 X2, it is a great demonstration of how superior single card's are to dual GPU cards.

Any one considering going SLI immediately with medium range cards on a new system should really think about that.
