NVIDIA Preps 320MB GeForce 8800 GTS

The GeForce 8 Series is starting to take shape as NVIDIA continues to release information on new graphic card models to its many partners. A 320MB derivative of the GeForce 8800 GTS product should be available in mid-February 2007. This model aims to reduce the cost for the enthusiast who really needs that DirectX 10 card. Samsung K4J55323QG-BC12 (800MHz GDDR3 memory) has a spot market price of about $50 for 640MB; therefore, the 320MB memory should go for $25 less. All aspects of the 640MB card will remain the same for the 320MB derivative: 500MHz core frequency, 800MHz memory frequency, 96 stream processors, the PCB layout as well as cooling.

In an interview late last year, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang confirmed the company's plans for more DirectX 10 video cards in Q1 2007.

640MB of memory for the card is 50$. Since the only thing that is different between the two cards is memory, DailyTech speculates that 320MB should be $25 cheaper. Chances are it will be a bit more than that though.

No you are reading wrong. The memory on the cards costs $50 for 640MB, $25 less for the 320MB version. The card will cost around $300 if I remember correctly.
