NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX: specs and benchmarks
NVIDIA started GeForce 8800 GTX sales 8 November 2006 at a recommended price of $599. This is Tesla architecture desktop card based on 90 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 768 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 0.9 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 86.4 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 270 mm. Two 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 155 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.28 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
Of GeForce 8800 GTX's architecture, market type and release date.
GeForce 8800 GTX's general performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU base clock, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of GeForce 8800 GTX's performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider its benchmark and gaming test results.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on GeForce 8800 GTX's compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility).
Parameters of memory installed on GeForce 8800 GTX: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors don't have dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on GeForce 8800 GTX. As a rule, this section is relevant only for desktop reference video cards, since for notebook ones the availability of certain video outputs depends on the laptop model.
APIs supported by GeForce 8800 GTX, sometimes including their particular versions.
Non-gaming benchmark performance of GeForce 8800 GTX. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
Let's see how good GeForce 8800 GTX is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
This video card matches 70% minimum and 60% recommended requirements of all games known to us.
