My Zotac against GTS 640MB and GTX

I just found a review which pitted my Zotac 8800 GT against Foxconn 8800 GTS 640 MB and MSI 8800 GTX. There is not much review for one as most Zotac card reviewed till today are the AMP version (700 MHz core clock).

To cut the story short, it seems that Zotac 8800 GT equals the performance of GTX in most benchmarks in the review, except in World in Conflict and 3DMark06 (meh!) and certainly whoop GTS 640 MB's butt big time. Even in Crysis, Zotac 8800 GT tops GTX in every tested resolution (a bit strange though, perhaps there's something wrong with the driver?).

It seems that Foxconn and MSI are factory-overclocked configurations too, just look at the table below.

MSI GeForce 8800 GTX FOXCONN GeForce 8800 GTS ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GT
Stream Processors 128 96 112
Core Clock (MHz) 610
Shader Clock (MHz) 1350
Memory Clock (MHz)
Video RAM (MB)
768 640 512
Memory Interface 384-bit 320-bit 256-bit
Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec) 86.4 64 57.6
Texture Fill Rate (billion/sec) 36.8 24 33.6

The review is also a good read for average, mainstream gamers like me who still stuck with 19" LCD monitor, hence play at 1280x1024 res max. To be honest, there are, but not much reviews today that really provide benchmarks around those resolution. I mean, most reviews are chasing for hi-def gaming benchies or some sort. Come on man, don't leave gamers like us behind!

Enough rants, head over to BenchmarkReviews for the full story.
