Two GeForce 8 models were released this week: GeForce 8800 GTX and GeForce 8800 GTS, both targeted to PCI Express x16. GeForce 8800 GTX requires two auxiliary power connectors and has two SLI connectors (we are asking ourselves if this isn’t a future support for SLI mode with four video cards).
As we mentioned before, the shader engines use a different clock rate from the rest of the GPU.
We list below the main specs for these two new video cards.
