Gainward silently lists 8800 GT 1GB

Comes in two flavors

 

Gainward has some rather interesting cards listed on its Web site. We are talking about the popular 8800 GT, but Gainward chose to spice up its offering with 1GB of memory.

According to Gainward's product page, there will be two 8800 GT cards with 1024MB of GDDR3 memory. The first one, branded Bliss 8800 GT 1024MB GS (Golden Sample), works at 650+ MHz for the core and 950+ MHz (1900+ MHz effective) for 1GB of memory. This card uses the same dual slot cooling solution which we saw in our review of Gainward's 8800 GT GLH, or Goes Like Hell, for those who didn't bother to read the review, one of the fastest 8800 GTs on the market.

The second one is branded Bliss 8800 GT 1024MB, and this one is working at reference 600 MHz for the core and 900 MHz (1800 MHz effective) for 1024MB of GDDR3 memory. Unlike the Golden Sample version, this one uses a different dual slot cooling solution, the one that comes without those fancy heatpipes.

When these two will be available and at what price is still unknown, but it's nice to see that Gainward has decided to pack 1GB of memory onto the popular, or should we say far too popular, 8800GT.
