NVIDIA recently released a new 3D graphics accelerator called the G92, equipped with 512MB GDDR3 memory a new card was born, the 8800GT. Believed to be the next best thing for the mid-range category market, we were keen to find yourself how this card performs against the former price/performance champion, the 8800GTS 320MB. Stock and overclocked results combined with performance scaling, we at Madshrimps will find out what Sparkle's version of the 8800GT 512MB has in store for you.

Sparkle 8800GT 512MB | core: 600MHz | shader: 1500MHz | memory: 1800MHz

Based on the NVIDIA G92, the Sparkle 8800GT comes with 112 stream processors clocked at 1500MHz, while the GPU core is clocked at 600MHz. In theory this card is faster than the older 8800GTS 320MB, and it comes with more memory, 512MB with a 256-bit wide bus, can we say this card is a daunting competitor for the high-end GTX? Before we dive into the performance chart let me first introduce you with the contents of Sparkle's 8800GT box ->
