Default NVIDIA Takes The Lid Off Of 8800M GTS and GTX

From our front-page news:
On the desktop PC side of things, it's not much of a surprise to see a new GPU be unveiled that totally blows away its predecessor at least once or twice a year. The notebook market is slightly different though, since we've seen NVIDIA's Go 7950GTX hold the top position in terms of performance for the past two years. According to a new article at HotHardware, NVIDIA is finally releasing a proper successor - one that delivers both high-performance with DX10-support.

Although all of the benchmarks were NVIDIA-provided, the new 8800M GTX looks to surpass two 7950 GTXs in SLI mode. Compared to that setup, the 8800M GTX improved on 3D Mark 06 scores by 7.5% and when compared to a single 8700M GT, the 8800M GTX improved on a FEAR run by a huge 240%. More impressive is that the machine with the 8700M GT had a faster processor, which FEAR tends to love. If performance matches up all around once these hit the market, DTR fans are going to be pleased. Very pleased.

Another piece of good news is that notebooks equipped with GeForce 8800M series graphics cards will be shipping very soon. In fact, several manufacturers begin shipping 8800M equipped notebooks today in both single-card and SLI configurations. The GeForce 8800M GTX and GTS certainly cleaned house in NVIDIA's benchmarks, but just imagine what a pair of these could do when configured in SLI.
