Where do the 8500GT, 8600GT, and 8600GTS fit into this?

I am still waiting for the correct specs from nVidia. I will contact them again. Thanks for the reminder.

Default Need HDMI and HDCP info please

Granted that DirectX version and Bandwidth is must know information, I would also like to see mention of HDCP and HDMI capability where they exist on a card. It will effect my purchasing plans.

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion, we may include this in the near future.

Right now no GPU (graphics chip) has built-in capability for HDMI. Some VGA manufacturers may include HDMI, but this not a feature from the GPU itself, requiring an external chip do make the conversion.

The first ones to have embedded HDMI support will be the forthcoming new series from AMD/ATI, codenamed R600.

Cheers,
Gabriel.

Thumbs up Great Job - Thanks!

Gabriel, did you do this? You're awesome! These are wonderful charts! Thank you, thank you -- very helpful in comparing ATI vs Nvidia, when recommending video cards to folks, or looking for an upgrade, or seeing if a cheap used video card is really a good deal or not.


One suggestion -- and I don't know if this is really possible/practical -- but also listing power consumption (W) would be useful (true peak, of course). Like I want a HTPC with a silent 300W PSU. So I've got a 68W CPU (K7 AMD variant), est +5W for the mainboard, est ~20W for the HDD (peak @ spinup), 5-20W for the DVD, so dropping in a 120W 1900XT would be folly. But a 30W 7600GS would do nicely. But this might not be possible, since the only reliable way to get this stat would be hands on testing, which I doubt you've got the time for. But if the vendors did post a rating, whether it was reliable or not, at least it would be a consistent source.


Anyhow, magnificant job collecting all this info.

It isn't really theasable to test, because every PSU differs so where as one may be able to handle the extra current, the other may not.
So in effect you would have to test, every PSU (even the generic branded ones) and then post the result's, I would expect you to be OK with the 7600Gs, people do run thing's as high as x1800GTO's on 300watt PSU, not really recommended though.
maybee if you tried a shuttle system where you can use a full size PSU, then you can stick your 8800Gtx'z in SLI .

That's a very exhausting list though it is missing the 8800GTS 512MB, which uses a different chip, memory bus and standard specifications than the original 8800GTS.

http://www.nvidia.com/page/geforce8.html

This site gives a rather complete description of the 8800GTS 512MB.

Quote:
Reference GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB Specifications
  • Frequency of unified processors: 1625 MHz
  • Unified processors: 128
  • 64 texture units, 16 blending units
  • Effective memory clock: 1.94 GHz (2*970 MHz)
  • Memory type: GDDR3
  • Memory: 512 MB
  • Memory bandwidth: 64.0 GB/sec.
  • Maximum theoretical fill rate: 10.4 gigapixel per second.
  • Theoretical texel rate: up to 41.6 gigatexel per second.
