NVIDIA GeForce 8800M GTS

NVIDIA GeForce 8800M GTS

The Nvidia GeForce 8800M GTS (also known as nVidia GeForce Go 8800M) is based upon the desktop G92 chip and is essentially a reduced (64 versus 96 Unified Shaders) 9800M GTX chip for DirectX 10.

The most important feature of the GeForce 8800M GTS is its use of "Unified Shaders". Dedicated pixel and vertex shaders are replaced by 64 Stream processors, which now do all the graphics workload previously handled by the two former discrete shaders. Furthermore, the Shader units are clocked higher than the core GPU itself (1250 MHz versus 800 MHz).

The performance of the 8800M GTS should be much greater than the 8700M GT because of the 256 bit wide memory bus and the higher amount of Unified Shaders. Most games of 2007 should run fluently on high detail settings, save for intensive titles such as Crysis and World in Conflict.  Models are available in  256 MB and 512 MB GDDR3 versions. Compared to more recent graphics cards, the 8800M GTS performs similarly to the 40nm Nvidia Geforce GTS 250M.

The current consumption and heat output will likely be higher than the 8700M GT, thus making the 8800M GTS suitable for larger notebooks with more powerful cooling solutions.
