The Asus 8800GTS we have with us today is the 512MB version based on the reference NVIDIA PCB design. The PCB is standard green this time around, unlike the initial batch of G80 cards that were in black.

Black whores may have to wait for third party variants.

PCB is the 94V-0

Notice how familiar the PCB is? The 94V-0 PCB is shared by the 8800GT.

Then again, the two makes are not without its differences, and here are the details.
