Default nVidia GeForce 8800GTS 640MB vs. 1280MB in SLI mode

We have had a look at the 320MB nVidia GeForce 8800GTS graphic card offering a few times here at TweakTown in the past - we have looked at it in its stock form, overclocked and in SLI. Itís a fantastic card and doesnít disappoint but in our first article we mainly focused on how it compared against the 640MB in single card configuration. Today we are going to be re-focusing on this situation but when the cards are used together in SLI mode.

With in excess of 1.2GB of memory on offer when the 640MB cards are enabled in SLI mode, you have to wonder are we simply at a point of overkill. Are the 640MB cards for non-SLI and the 320MB cards for SLI? These are some of the questions we hope to answer today.

Default

You never really have 1.2Gb of memory, since each 640Mb is only available to one card; so no single card in their SLI has access 1280Mb of video memory
