quote: My point is if people are whining about the naming convention on Nvidia's cards they should be doing pretty much the same with ATi's.
quote: GeForce 9800GTX is none other than the 65nm G92 core found on the GeForce 8800GT, though all 128 shaders are enabled -- opposed to the 112 found on last year's G92.
quote: One week later, on March 25, NVIDIA will lift its embargo on the GeForce 9800GTX. Partners are instructed to pull out all the stops on the G92 silicon, unlocking the core frequency to 675 MHz and the memory frequency to 2200 MHz.
quote: The 8800 GTS 512 core comes clocked at an impressive 650 MHz and the GDDR3 memory works at 1940 MHz allowing for a theoretical memory bandwidth of 62.7GB/s, which is surprisingly low. It is not the amount of onboard memory that lets the 8800 GTS 512 down but rather the 256-bit wide bus that it uses. The GeForce 8800 Ultra features a peak memory bandwidth capacity of 103.7GB/s while the GTX has a throughput of 86.4GB/s as both products utilize a 384-bit wide memory bus.
quote: Perhaps they will increase the bus to 384 or higher?
quote: The core of the card is G92-420, reference clock is 675MHz. SP running at 1688MHz. The card uses 512MB GDDR3 memory, memory interface is 256bit. We have already run the card on our X38 and QX9650 @ 4GHz. The [3Dmark06] score is not too high not too low: 14725.
quote: Any ideas why this was excluded?
quote: Is it not possible to run 2500x1600 thru HDMI?
quote: NVIDIA has tweaked the architecture quite a bit between the "old" G92s and these "new" ones
quote: nForce 790i is essentially the same as nForce 780i, but with support for 45nm quad-core Intel processors
quote: Yes, it does come with 768 MB of memory, but on a 256-bit bus a la 8800 GTS 512
