Default G92 renamed to 8800GT

Quote:
Nvidia has decided to change the marketing name of G92 (D8P) from GeForce 8700 GTS to GeForce 8800 GT instead. The 8800 GT card is 9-inch long, has 8-10 layer PCB and equipped with 1ns GDDR3 memories. There will be 2 SKUs; GeForce 8800 GT 256MB and GeForce 8800 GT 512MB priced at US$199 and US$249 respectively. The performance lies between GeForce 8600 GTS and 8800 GTS 640MB. However, knowing that RV670 is doing better than expected, Nvidia is now trying to bump up clock speed of G92 and may push forward its launch schedule to early November to be ahead of RV670. There will be 2 SKUs; GeForce 8800 GT 256MB and GeForce 8800 GT 512MB priced at US$199 and US$249 respectively.
VR-Zone : Technology Beats - Nvidia G92 is GeForce 8800 GT

So its possible the "512mb" version will perform better than the 8800GTS 320mb?

Also I might get this depending if I get those two 8800GTX's

No, it won't perform as good as the 8800GTS. Higher memory for video cards help when you're running at higher resolutions. Say you're running at 1280x1024. You're really not going to see a performance different between an 8800GTS with 640MB over the 320MB.

The new 8800GT is going to have performance between the 8600GT and the 8800GTS.
