Default 8800GT 256MB review



8800GT 256MB vs 8600GTS



8800GT 256MB VS HD3850 256MB:



8800GT 256MB vs 8800GT 512MB




Source


So, it is faster than HD3850

But it slower than 8800GT 512MB in high resolution and when running AA and AF

Awesome find... this is really surprising to me, and very exciting! Looks like a 8800gt 256mb is in my future.

It runs great at high res, just not with AA and AF up.

I have heard many prices, but all under $200!!! Wow, these are going to be impossible to find.

I wonder how these will perform in SLI? Probably better than a GTX or even an Ultra? And if memory is utilized properly, then high-resolutions shouldn't be much of an issue. Maybe I'll look into two of these instead of the one 8800GTS G92 Revision.

there will still only be 256mb available of VRAM so with AA+AF it will struggle at very high resolutions or texture heavy games even in SLI.
