the new 8800GT has 16 more stream processors than the 8800GTS, so there adding another 16 to the 8800GTS as it wouldnt make sense to have a lower end card out perform a higher end card. there also droping the 320mb version, which wont have a version for the extra stream processors

I believe the new GTS is going to have a 65nm core too, but don't quote me on that...

8800GT:

GeForce 8800 GT is the perfect card for gamers that want to play Crysis,” said Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek. “By bringing such high performance to the sub-$250 price segment, NVIDIA is allowing even more gamers to experience the full range of Crysis’s stunning visual effects at maxed-out resolutions.”

In addition to 112 stream processors—each individually clocked at 1. 5GHz—and a 256-bit memory interface running at a blazing-fast 900MHz, the GeForce 8800 GT is designed for the new PCI Express 2.0 bus standard and is backwards compatible with the original PCI Express standard.

The GeForce 8800 GT also marries the best-in-gaming with the best-in-HD. It leverages NVIDIA’s revolutionary second-generation video processing engine to deliver high-quality playback of HD DVD and Blu-ray movies on everyday PCs. The new programmable video processing engine takes on all of the high definition H.264 video decoding, freeing the CPU to perform other tasks and significantly reducing power consumption, heat, and noise.

SLi these two babies together and you got it made. If I were to build a system today and budget was tight, this is THE video card of choice hands down.

Sweet, I think this may be the card I will get as my DX10 card, I had been planning on buying since I built my computer a year ago.

So as the SSC GTS's better then the new GT's? Cause it looks like they still have less stream processors.

November is supposed to mark the release of the new and improved GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB. Yet, from the rumors, the new and improved GeForce 8800 GTS may be launching in limited numbers right now. Believe it or not, there is absolutely no way to determine the new 96+ stream processor GeForce 8800 GTS from the older, now end of life one. So watch out which GeForce 8800 GTS you pick up if you swing that way.

just wait, a month wont kill you, although if you cant wait, get an evga card so you can use the step up program, but you only have 90 days to do it.

Here's a breakdown of the 8000 series competition:

The new and improved GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB will have the same 500MHz core clock, 800MHz memory speed, and 320 bit memory bus as its predecessor, but it will supposedly feature 112 stream processors. That's 16 more than the current model, which boasts 96 SPs, but still 16 less than the full-blown GeForce 8800 GTX and Ultra, which both have 128 SPs.

Hmmmm, it would probably be worth the wait for the new GTS instead of getting the GT or the GTX.
