Preview: In between 8800GT and 8800GTX

 

If you're looking for a graphics card for a 22'' or a bigger widescreen monitor, and you like gaming with high detail settings, then you should give 8800 GTS card with 112 Stream processors a serious thought. In case you didn’t know, after it turned out that 8800 GT is better than 8800 GTS with 96 Stream processors, Nvidia decided to enable 16 additional Stream processors on their 8800 GTS, in order to further improve the performance.

EVGA 8800 GTS 640 SSC is the first card that will fill the performance gap between 8800 GT and 8800 GTX. Although 8800 GT is cheaper by 30 percent, 8800GTS with 112 Stream processors and 640MB memory can easily beat 8800 GT on higher resolutions. Knowing that, it’s easy to conclude that it’s far better than 8800GTS with 96 Stream processors.

EVGA went even further – they overclocked the card, so the results are even better. The core runs at 576MHz and the memory at 1800MHz. This is much faster that 8800GTS with 96 Stream processors, which runs at 500MHz core, and 1600MHz memory speed. EVGA 8800 GTS SSC’s Shaders run at 1350MHz.

We tested a couple of games and the results aren’t quite what we expected. 8800 GTS SSC beats 8800 GTS with 96 Stream processors, but 8800GT still holds its ground.

However, we can’t paint the whole picture until we see how this card performs on different resolutions and different games. 8800GTS with 112 Stream processors should be better in DX 10 games, but we’re about to find that out, so stay tuned.
