For those hungry powergamers with top of the line PC Machines, what NVidia is about to unleash during November will make you drool. It is DirectX 10 and shader model 4.0 complaint right off the box and requires 450 Watts of Power. So start upgrading to 600 Watts PSU. The new line of Nvidia G80 cards comes in two flavors: 8800GTX (450w requirement and two power plugs) and 8800GTS (only 400w requirement and one power plug). However, Taiwan vendors seem to be working on a SLI version that will require 800W Power supply.
DailyTech: “NVIDIA?s GeForce 8800GTX will be the flagship product. The core clock will be factory clocked at 575 MHz. All GeForce 8800GTX cards will be equipped with 768MB of GDDR3 memory, to be clocked at 900 MHz. The GeForce 8800GTX will also have a 384-bit memory interface and deliver 86GB/second of memory bandwidth. GeForce 8800GTX graphics cards are equipped with 128 unified shaders clocked at 1350 MHz. The theoretical texture fill-rate is around 38.4 billion pixels per second.”
