NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX: specs and benchmarks
- Interface PCIe 1.0 x16
- Core clock speed 576 MHz
- Max video memory 768MB
- Memory type GDDR3
- Memory clock speed 900MHz
- Maximum resolution
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
of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT.

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.
