The GeForce 8800 GT is somewhat slower than the GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB in open scenes because of differences in the architecture of the TMUs or lower memory bandwidth or both. But on the Research level the new card goes ahead as it boasts as many as 112 shader processors clocked at a very high frequency. The pre-overclocked version from Leadtek is the leader in both cases although by a narrow margin on the Pier map.
It’s different in the HDR mode: the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT is unrivalled everywhere, enjoying a 25-27% lead over the GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB. The Leadtek WinFast PX8800 GT Extreme adds a few percent more at high resolutions.
