Vengeance is still being judged by the masses

Default Nvidia Expands The Reach Of Directx 10 Gaming With New Geforce 8800-based Graphics Ca

· Today add in card partners of NVIDIA have released graphics cards based on the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS graphics processing unit (GPU). These new cards come with 320MB of video memory and have prices ranging from $299-$349.
· E-tailers and retailers worldwide now carry 320MB graphics cards based on the award-winning GeForce 8800 GTS GPU. For a complete list, visit http://www.nvidia.com/content/wheretobuy/.
· GeForce 8 Series GPUs are the first shipping DirectX 10 GPUs, and are the reference GPUs for DirectX 10 API development and certification.
· Other graphics cards supporting DirectX 10 include cards based on the GeForce 8800 GTX for $599-$649 and GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB for $399-$449.
· GeForce 8 Series GPUs include all required hardware functionality defined in the Microsoft Direct3D® 10 specification, with full support for the DirectX 10 unified shader instruction set and Shader Model 4 capabilities.
· A lower barrier of entry to DirectX 10 gaming will expand the installed base of Microsoft® DirectX® 10 capable-hardware.
· DirectX 10 is included with Microsoft Windows Vista and delivers unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects for games, all rendered in real-time on a GeForce 8 Series DirectX 10-capable GPU.
· NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) is the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor technologies.

Not a bad looking card. Wish I had one to play with, see how it stacks up to my 8800GTS 640MB at my native screen rez. These 320MB cards should do really well for people that are locked into a screen rez like I am 1680x1050.

One quote I read that I really liked and it does make sense is this....

Attributable to Cevat Yerli, President of Crytek (www.crytek.com), an interactive entertainment development company dedicated to the creation of high-quality video games including the award-winning Far Cry games and the highly anticipated DirectX 10 title Crysis.
“The more gamers that have DirectX 10 capable hardware in their systems, the more incentive game developers have to add the most advanced visual effects to their games. When gamers get immersed in Crysis and see the kind of experience DirectX 10 delivers, they will be thankful that NVIDIA led the charge to the next generation of PC games.”
I'll try to post some reviews as I find them.
