This time last year the upgrade everyone wanted was NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 GT. Packing 112 shaders clocked at 1500MHz, a 600MHz GPU core clock, and a 256-bit memory interface with 900MHz memory, the GeForce 8800 GT delivered an extraordinary amount of performance for its $300 price tag. In our GeForce 8800 GT Performance Preview we proclaimed 'Clearly the GeForce 8800 GT is the best GPU in the mainstream segment right now, and may even tempt a few prospective GeForce 8800 GTX buyers. NVIDIA really has outdone themselves with this GPU.'"
