GeForce 8800GTS expected in December

By Justin Mann on November 27, 2007, 8:07 PM
Update: Clarification was needed on explaining that we are referring to a newer GeForce 8800 GTS, based on the same G92 core revision used in the GeForce 8800 GT. This card is set to replace the previous generation of G80-based 8800 GTS products. What we will get is a slight speed bump, probably up to GTX levels, but cheaper and cooler.

The GeForce 8800GTS was originally planned to be launched earlier this month, but had its launch delayed by Nvidia. At first they did not mention why, nor when they would officially release the card. Now they have committed to a new release date, saying the units will be available in the second week of December on the 11th. The card has been eagerly anticipated, and the delay, while slight, might indicate that Nvidia is expecting huge demand or is having difficulty meeting their supply quota.

In either case, the short delay will probably not affect retail availability, at least not so much that Nvidia cared to announce.

I'll be surprised if this isn't faster than the GTX, as the GT is very close. I guess another card named the 8800GTX is due soon. Cool, now nvidia can just keep the same names for new cards forever.

We will have something to show you by the time the NDA is lifted. On an actual shipping card, of course.
