Default XFX GeForce 8800 GT 256MB XXX Review

The GeForce 8800 GT 256MB takes the same G92 graphics core found in the GeForce 8800 GT 512MB, only its has half the amount of GDDR3 memory, which has also been detuned to run at slower speeds. Whereas the GeForce 8800 GT 512MB boasts 800MHz memory (1.6GHz effective), the baseline specification for the 256MB variant calls for 700MHz (1.4GHz effective). The graphics core and stream processors run at 600MHz and 1.5GHz respectively on all GeForce 8800 GT GPUs.

Like the GeForce 8800 GT 512MB though, NVIDIA’s board partners are free to go beyond the baseline specifications. The XFX XXX Edition card we’re testing today for instance is clocked higher than the stock GeForce 8800 GT 256MB speeds…

Again, as you saw in our benchmarks, many of today’s latest games run terribly with 256MB cards like the GeForce 8800 GT and Radeon HD 3850. These cards just don’t have enough onboard memory to run these newer games with high graphics settings and 4xAA, so you’ve either got to turn down the graphics settings in these games or turn off AA to get adequate performance. This is something to keep in mind if AA is an important feature to you.
Especially noticeable in Oblivion, once you turn on 4xAA performance drops to <10FPS
