Several sources are suggesting that the upcoming GeForce 8800 GT has 112 stream processors like the new GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB SKU. We also heard that its shader clock is running at 1.5GHz. CJ did some nice analysis on the Nvidia’s strategy here on why is there a new 8800 GTS SKU. He revealed that there is a shortage of GTX cores but plenty of GTS cores going around that didn’t quite make it as a GTX. So if you launch a new product that is faster than a 8800GTS, no one will buy the more expensive GTS unless you up its stream processor count for higher performance. Also with a 320-bit memory interface, it certainly perform better at high resolutions and with lots of AA/AF/HDR. This way Nvidia can still get rid of the inventory.
