G92 takes the stage - ASUS EN8800GT 512MB video card review
A year is a long time in the world of consumer 3D graphics, and the fact that NVIDIA's G80 architecture has remained as top dog for virtually a year since its release speaks volumes about the capabilities of the core. But, to continue the canine analogies, every dog has its day, and today sees a new puppy let off its leash, attempting to bring yet higher DirectX 10 performance at a respectable price point to the masses.
The codename of this new GPU is G92, and it makes its first appearance in retail under the GeForce 8800 GT moniker. So, what does this mean for the DirectX 10 graphics board market? Will it tempt those who have been biding their time before making the leap to a current generation graphics card? Will it be a worthy upgrade for existing GeForce 8800 owners? We investigate all this and more, today taking a look at ASUS' reference clocked GeForce 8800 GT board, the EN8800GT.
