ED#71 : NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB (G92) Benchmark Results

Everyone's eagerly awaiting the official launch of the G92-based NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB. Although we had been informed that it would be using an improved G80 GPU, the new GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB actually uses the G92 GPU, the same GPU used by the GeForce 8800 GT.

In a way, our source was correct although he/she may have been disingenuous about it. After all, the G92 is really an improved version of the G80 GPU. In any case, we have managed to obtain a retail NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB graphics card. In fact, we are putting it to the test right now!

A full-fledged comparison will take quite some time to complete, so in the meantime, here's a quick comparison between the new GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB and the GeForce 8800 GTX as well as the new GeForce 8800 GT in four DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 games. First, let's compare its specifications with other NVIDIA graphics cards.

For more specifications, please take a look at our Desktop Graphics Card Comparison Guide.

From its specifications alone, the new G92-based GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB is almost as fast as the GeForce 8800 GTX. It has virtually the same amount of fillrate. It only lost out in memory bandwidth. But it is certainly much faster than older GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB/320MB. Compared to its predecessors, it has a massive 50% boost in fillrate with the same amount of memory bandwidth.
