Default The mainstream cost of 8800 series product: MSI NX8800GTS T2D320E performance reviews

Since NVIDIA announced the Geforce8 new generation GPU products,
They launched 8800GTX 768MB and 8800GTS 640MB as enthusiast products.
Geforce8 series build with DX10 and new generation technology to replace
old top segment 7900 series.

Because of the sky high price, make the 7900 series still alive under 350USD
product segment.
NVIDIA seems wants to enhance the 8800 series market share, so they
phase in the 8800GTS 320MB,
Use smaller memory size design with same performance and make the street
price under 320USD to the performance market.

This time we got MSI NX8800GTS T2D320E
There are HDCP ready and OC version stickers on BOX.

After the 3DMARK2006 test, the core temp. is 69℃ with overclock frequency.


650/2100Mhz=>NV performance test software shows 59℃

8800GTS got great overclock ability, almost can reach 8800GTX frequency.
The performance of 8800GTS is closed with 8800GTX after overclock.
8800GTS use smaller size, single power connector and lower temp.
After the cost down with 320MB design, 8800GTS did great job to install and
buy more then 8800GTX
Seems the 8800GTS 320MB under340USD almost defeat 7900 series SLI
solution.
That makes the 8800GTS could replace the 7900/7950 series over 300USD,
and become the best selection with 300USD segment.
We sure for expect on few month later, GeForce8 series mainstream and
value segment launch to make the DX10 generation coming!

SLI test to be continued...

More temperature information
Driver Version: 97.92 with ATI TOOL 0.26 & RivaTuner 2.0
No case setup platform with 25℃ room temp.
8800GTS OC version default frequency: Core/Mem 575/1700
Standby 20 minute: 53℃


After 3DMARK2006 test: 68℃


8800GTS OC version overclock frequency: Core/Mem 650/2133
Standby 20 minute: 53℃


After 3DMARK2006 test: 71℃


When test with 3DMARK, fan will not speed up,
so the noise is acceptable with my temp. test.
