New 8800 GTS.

Having already released a new, (sort of) budget-priced GeForce 8800 GT less than two months ago, Nvidia has just launched today a higher-end 8800 GTS 512 MB for the $299 to $349 price range. According to the press release (via GamesIndustry.biz), the card "offers 25% more graphics processing power than NVIDIA products previously offered at the same price point."

Our friends at Engadget have made the rest of the technospeak easier to understand: 65-nm technology, twin dual-link DVI ports, DirectX 10 support, smooth playback of H.264, VC-1, WMV and MPEG-2 HD and SD movies, and more. Sure, it'll set you back the cost of an Xbox 360 console, but you might be able to raise the graphics settings on Crysis up to a mind-blowing medium.
Hmmmm.

Medium if you're playing it at FULL res with FULL AA and DX10 effects. Play with DX9 at full res with no AA, which is pretty much useless anyway at max res, and it'll run fine at high detail. Seen it happen on a GTX, and the GT is almost on par with it. The GTS is about as strong as the GTX.

Going by benchmarks though I dont think its worth paying for. The amount of performance bonus isnt worth the extra $50. The GT keeps up with the GTS in almost every game and only loses out by a few frames. If you dont want the GT then wait till around april-august for the new line.
