8800GTS 512MB G92 put to the test

8800gtsTweaktown managed to get their hands on one of NVIDIA’s new G92 based 8800GTS 512MB cards. As usual they gave it a good thrashing in their benchmarks to get the all important results for everyone looking to upgrade.

The G92 based 8800GTS 512MB card is NVIDIAs newest release in the update to their 8000 series of video cards.

The 8800 GTS 512MB is supposed to sit in between the current high level cards, namely the 8800 GTX and 8800 Ultra, and the budget king, the 8800GT 512MB.

Here are some of the results:

Bench 1


Bench 2
Bench 3
Bench 4
Bench 5

The new 8800GTS 512MB G92 is looking to be a very good card for those people wanting to run games in resoultions of 1920×1200 and above, pipping the GTX in Crysis and a number of other games. The Ultra still wins out, but being the super expensive NVIDIA offering, it was always going to.

If you’re looking to upgrade in the near future and are going to be looking for a larger sized monitor in the 28"-30" range, then the 8800GTS 512MB G92 card is perfect.

If, however, you are only going to be getting a screen in the region of 19"-24" then stick with the cheaper 8800GT 512MB card, as the performance difference in the lower resolutions used on the smaller monitors is very small and would be hardly noticable.
