I figured as much.
I agree with this. I have not checked Guru's video card list but I can see as how the GTS would outperform the 96 GT when it comes to higher resolutions with AA and AF.
Having just looked at the Guru Charts it seems that the 9600GT outperforms the 8800GTS 640mb, where they are compared, in pretty much all the tests at all resolutions except for Stalker where it wins out..
Guru charts >>Here
Oh and the 96's do clock very nicely and stay very cool.... max temp at load 53C at clocks shown
Do they even sell the GTS 320mb anymore?
Anyway, I decided long ago I'd get an 8800GT or a 9600GT. My monitor, although having a pretty nice colour quality, only supports up to 1280x1024 (because it was a present for me, and as I only had a card with analog input back then, they could only buy me a fitting screen ).
Anyway, I'd imagine the 9600GT beating the GTS G80 640mb at 1280x1024 easily, yes?
Overclocking the 8800gts would be faster than the 9600gt , plus the 8800gts has more stream processors which can be a pretty big diff
haha, thats exactly what i thought :|
As far as I know, the 8800GTS has less. We're talking about the G80 here.
Not really, The new arhcitecture of the G92/4 chips makes up the gain the extra streams would make up for its far better texturing process, plus they overclock to clocks that no 8800GTS(G80) owner could imagine, i had a 8800GTS before so i know.
8800GTS G80 96SP 320bit at 500/1188/1600
9600GT G94 64SP 256bit at 650/1600/1800
Seems fairly clear cut to me that the 88GTS 640mb is slower @ stock speeds than the 96GT but i'm yet to see any GTS clocked to the extent i've comfortably managed with my 96GT ... 800/1975/2300 is easily attainable and will go a bit more yet with some fine tuning
Doesn't matter, it's still slower than the 9600GT, and the 9600GT overclocks to godly levels that the G80 can't touch...
What brand and revision G80 GTS did you have???
My GTS is clocked at 660/1600ish/1300 i can attain higher clocks but i don't trust my PSU...It has a dodgy fan that regulary needs a finger poked into it :/:3eyes:
My previous PSU had a fan that stopped working sometimes too.
One day I got tired of poking my finger in it to spin it around. Took some old 80mm fan I had laying in my stock of random computer items, took out the PSU and sat myself down at a table. Took out the old fan, in with the other old fan, and it had worked ever since
I used one of those... Weld-like things for electronics, honestly don't remember the name.
I think you mean a Solder.
Any ways. I have the EVGA 8800GTS 640mb cards and they do fine. Mine are set to 600/1389/900 and I have gone much higher but never really had the need to do so. That is why I dropped them back down after a reinstall of my OS when I did a few upgrades to my computer. The highest I am allowed to go is 770/1785/1190 but I never tried it. I did test them once at 700/1621/1000 and they did fine on BF2142 and other games like Crysis and COD4. Yet my heat was a bit higher than I wanted. It was just stock cooling after all and I have a mid-tower with little room inside. I could probably get better results now that I have them cooled by water-blocks. Yet I still see no reason to go so high with them. That is why I just keep them so low.
Although the 9600 should do better than them. The G94 is supposed to be better than the G80. I have not tried a G94 to confirm this but the consensus is that it is better. Out of the box you should get better results for the most part. Yet I would not switch them right away. Keep the newer rig with the 9600 and your older rig with the 8800. If you like the way your older computer is running with the 8800 then their should be no reason to start swapping them out and messing around with it. Thats just me though. It all really depends on what you feel like doing.
Those clocks are for my 96GT not an 88GTS
That's the one, thanks. Isn't it also called a Soldering Iron or something like that?
How are you guys hitting such high clocks with your 640's? I have an antec 900 with fan mods for my 8800gts.
My clocks 620/1500/900.
Yeah it is also called a Soldering Iron or Gun or even a Stick, etc., etc.,. I guess it all depends on the type that you get.
As for our high clock numbers; I guess it all depends. You can check my specs below and everyone else's to compare the hardware we have to your computer specs.
Also I use RivaTuner for OC'ing my cards. I see that you are using the ATi Tool. Have you tried RivaTuner yet?
A major factor is keeping your hardware cool. The cooler you can keep it the better results that you will get. Thats why I went Liquid Cooling. My case was not suited for these cards. The 8800's I have put off some heat; plus all the other things in their that also put off heat. I had little room in the case plus the airflow design of the case was not good. I could have just went out and bought a new case but I decided to move into the Liquid Cooling instead. I could not even come close to the numbers I have now before I did this. I was not even OC'ing and I was having problems. After I started using the Liquid cooling, I was able to hit my current numbers and more. I went even higher after I added the second radiator.
Also; you do not need Liquid Cooling to do this. If you can get some good air flow through the case and onto the hardware then you should be good.
A lot of people have really good results on Air Cooling.
It is sort of hard to read your pictures but your numbers look good on CPU. Your GPU looks just a little good as well but can be a lot better. What does your temps for the GPU say when you use GPU-Z to check them? If you do not have GPU-Z you should pick it up and see what they say. Everest temps might be a little off and you might need to offset your temps for it; if Everest can even do that; like RivaTuner can.
I'd stick with the 8800GTS. I had one of those, both 320 and 640 and really the 640 is a beast and has a far greater bit path and memory. The X600 series of Nvidia cards are always just okay; but for the money its always good.
sorry for the bump here, but what if the card was a 8800GTS 320mb (g80) model vs a 9600GT?
