8800 GTX drops to ? 369
Scared of 8800 GTS 512MB
The Geforce 8800 GTX has dropped to €369, as the new 8800 GTS 512MB G92-based cards are almost as fast as this year-old competitor.
This is a very interesting price, as the 8800 GTX has never been lower priced, and clearly Nvidia wants to get rid of the leftovers to make some space for next month’s announcement of the D8E dual PCB/chip card.
The Geforce 8800 GTX will also be a better bet for higher resolutions with FSAA and Anisotropic filtering enabled, as it has 3a 84-bit memory controller and faster memory, while the new 8800 GTS 512MB has 256-bit memory controller and slightly slower memory.
If this looks attractive, you can get the Asus EN8800GTX/HTDP here.
