Nvidia's 320MB GeForce 8800 GTS goes on sale

UK suppliers listing it, at least

UK resellers have begun to confirm that Nvidia is indeed preparing a 320MB version of the GeForce 8800 GTS graphics chip, as was rumoured early last month.

As expected, the part matches the GPU specs of the 640MB 8800 GTS: 500MHz core clock frequency, 96 unified shaders running at 1.2GHz and memory set to 1.6GHz effective. The fill rate's 26.4bn texels per second, while the memory bandwidth reaches 64GBps.

So, at any rate, claims Novatech, which is listing the HDCP-enabled graphics card at £200 and claiming it has 95 of the boards in stock. Not so CustomPC, which lists an MSI-branded version of the 320MB 8800 GTS with a 'coming soon' tag but is inviting buyers to pre-order the part for £238.

Past reports claimed the 320MB 8800 GTS would ship around the middle of this month, so we're not far off, no matter what.

The 640MB 8800 GTS was launched last year alongside the 768MB 8800 GTX.
