    Default 8600GTS/GT in April

    According to this article, there will be no "G81" or "8900".
    Nvidia seems to be working on something better, so VR-Zone says

    That's what they did with the 6800 series as well. I think I'll just play my hand close to my chest and stick with the 7950GT for a while like I did with my 6800nu.

    Is it? The 8600 is supposed to be mid range, lower than the 8800 in spec. 8800s I have are 630/2000. There is no way its beaten by the 8600 - I doubt even by the 8900 - which rumours suggest is scrapped.

    Just because it has a faster core doesn't mean it's a better card. The shader units will determine that along with the ram bit width and bandwidth.

    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0191.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX"
    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0193.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS"
    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0194.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra"
    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_019E.1 = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600"
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0400.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS"
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0402.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT"
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0421.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT"
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0422.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS"
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0423.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8300 GS"

    It seems that NVIDIA is planning for a higher clocked GeForce 8800 Ultra and a cheaper GeForce 8400GS card.

    Well the G80 cannot be clocked higher than at 630 but with WC - and even that at 680 max. So I wonder where they go.... Seems CADs VR-Zone link with 700/2000 is more correct
