Gaming Performance Comparison

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB are massively better than the .

The has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The 8800 GTS was released over three years more recently than the , and so the 8800 GTS is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the when running the latest games.

The 8800 GTS has 640 MB video memory, but the does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The 8800 GTS has 96 Shader Processing Units but the does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB requires 143 Watts to run but there is no entry for the . We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the 8800 GTS.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce 8800 GTS 640MB is a high-end GFX based on the 90nm variant of the first-shader unified architecture.
It's based on the G80 Core and offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 20 ROPs, on a 320-bit memory interface of GDDR3. The central unit runs at 513MHz and the memory clock operates 792MHz. It will consume no more than 143 Watt.
Technically, next in series, when compared to GeForce 8800 GT, it performs worse as the amount of Shader Processing Units and TMUs was reduced and the GPU comes under-clocked, in exchange for a wider bus-width and extra video memory.
Today's modern demanding games can be played at medium (most) or high settings (some) smoothly. However, DirectX 11 based games aren't supported.
