When Nvidia officially released the GeForce 8800 GT we all knew a 256MB version but it's only today that such a version has been unveiled. The first manufacturer to announce the 256MB version 8800 GT is 'dog eat dog' XFX which has unveiled no less than two cards, a Standard Edition and a factory-overclocked XXX Edition.
Not surprisingly, the 256MB version is very similar to its bigger brother, but only aesthetic wise as the price tag of the 'little puppy' is significantly lower - €149 excluding VAT. The price given is most likely that of the stock version so expect the XXX Edition to cost a little more. The Radeon HD 3850 may need to get cheaper (again).
