GeForce 8800GT for older Mac Pros released

04/15, 3:15pm

GeForce 8800GT

The long-awaited NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT upgrade for Mac Pros has been released. The graphics card features 512MB of dedicated GDDR3 memory, uses the PCI Express interface, and includes two dual-link DVI ports, and is capable of driving up to two 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Displays. It requires a Mac Pro (bus speed 1.33GHz) with PCI-Express. The card is priced at $280 and can be purchased as a standalone, user-installable item or as a build-to-order option for Early 2008 Mac Pros through the online Apple Store. Controversy ensued when Apple introduced this upgrade card as an option available exclusively to newly purchased Mac Pros in January. At the time, users presented research that shows the cards should be backwards compatible. Apple is now making the kit available, in supported fashion, to all Mac Pros with a bus speed for at least 1.33GHz.

ASUS rolls out GeForce 8800 GT with 1GB memory

ASUS EN8800GT 1GB Card

ASUS finished its week with an update to its EN8800GT video cards. The new version of the company's GeForce 8800 GT card is the first to carry 1GB of video memory and increases the amount of space for textures and other data that can sometimes choke performance on the stock 512MB card. This is especially useful at the very highest resolutions and game detail settings, the company says. The card further veers away from NVIDIA's reference model using a custom heatsink and fan combo that ASUS claims will drop the running temperature of the card by 7C (44F) and result in either a more reliable card or more headroom for overclocking.
