8800GS vs (G80)8800GTS?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is the 8800GS any good? At least when compared to older G80 based 8800GTS 320MB/640MB cards? I found this chart (link below) at some random Chinese website that compares 8800GS (both 384MB and 768MB versions) to 8800GT 512MB, 8800GTS 320MB and few Radeon cards, and 8800GTS 320MB and 8800GS 384MB are overall about the same. Is this accurate?

I've seen a few benchmarks on the 8800GS 384MB, and yes, the performance is similar to that of the 8800GTS G80 320MB.

The 8800GS uses less stream processors and a smaller memory bus than the GTS (G80) 320MB, but compensates with higher core/shader/memory clocks and an improved chip (G92).

The 8800GT and 8800GTS 512MB both use the G92 chipset, and will perform better than both the 320 and 640MB versions of the GTS.

The g80 is done stick with the g92 8800gs, or even better get a 9600gt.

I second getting atleast a 9600GT. You can get an ECS 9600GT for $150 and it has an Accelero S2 on it. If your worried about it's warranty go with either an XFX or eVGA 9600GT.

Thing is, in my area I can get a EVGA 8800GTS 320MB for about the same I could get XFX 8800GS. 8800GS is indeed a G92 chip, but it's pretty cut down. Primarily ROPs, which = raw power. (12 on GS vs. 20 on GTS)

I was hoping somebody on these forums had first hand experience with both of these cards and could give me some info.
