A quick look at the chart below will tell you the differences between the 192-bit 8800GS and other 8 series. The price tag of 8800GS 384MB will be 1199CNY or about 164USD, while the 768MB version will cost 1499CNY (~204USD). Redirect here for some more pics and results.

Geez, 768 MB of GDDR3 under a 192 bit bus? Isn't that pushing it?

They're really milking this whole 8 series. Makes me wonder if they're just throwing these cards out to the public to keep our minds off the 9 series which very well could have some bugs.

That's just the way it is. nvidia knows they have a hyped-up series of GPUs with a killer reputation, and they're milking all the money they can out of it. If it wasn't for ATI failing to produce faster cards, we probably would have had the 9 series in November.

they should show an 8800gt comparison, so we know exactly where it stands towards an 8800gt
