I read somewhere that this new 8800 GT does a halfway decent job keeping up with its big brothers while being considerably cheaper, much more power efficient and last but not least quieter.

Noise is still debatable. As far as performance is concerned it's embarrassing the GTS Bring it on

Interesting

Arrived today and threw it in. Running with an E6400 at stock, 2GB XMS6400 at stock, just installed the drivers from the CD over the top of the old ones and scores took a bit of a jump

3dm06 from 3800 to 9212
3dm01 from 19000 to 35099

Old scores were with a 7800GTX

Card looks like it's got a LOT of performance

It seems NVIDIA are playing a little game here.

Now there's an all new 8800GTS, which out-performs the earlier GTS, and new GT:

We want more! We want to see the wild glory of this card subduing the games that formally taunted us! ":O}

You always bring the best toys when you come home! ":O}
Running my "old" 8800 640 DDR 3 GTS at 659 (gets flaky, freezes, after that} and 1.4 Ram, starts streaking light in the "sprites section of 3DM 06. after that,These are my best settings for perfect performance. Water cooled card, E6600 duel core.

still haven't clocked this thing but just set up the system up properly. Taken the initial score from 35099 to 36700, that's a 5% improvement through just doing the basics Oh how lazy I have been
