More GeForce 8800 derivatives make an appearance

NVIDIA has released to its partners plans to announce a 320MB GeForce 8800 GTS product.  NVIDIA's embargo date for the 8800 GTS 320MB is slated for mid-February.

The GeForce 8800 GTS is designed to reduce the cost of enthusiast-level DirectX 10.  Samsung K4J55323QG-BC12 (800MHz GDDR3 memory) has a spot market price of about $50 for 640MB.  We can reasonably expect a $25 reduction in the bill of materials for the 320MB version of the card. 

The 320MB card is one of the many G80 derivatives expected for Q1'07.  NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang confirmed the company's plans for more DirectX 10 video cards in an interview late last year.

GeForce 8800 GTS, also known as G80-100, already exists as a 640MB product.  All aspects of the 640MB card will remain the same for the 320MB derivative: 500MHz core frequency, 800MHz memory frequency and 96 stream processors.  The PCB layout and cooling will remain the same.

Other DirectX 10 GeForce cards such as G84-300 and G86-300 are expected to ship before the AMD R600 graphics card.  R600 is currently scheduled to launch at Cebit 2007 in late Q1'07.
