I'm curious to see how this would match up with the 8800GT if you oced it to the same core speed. More mem on the GTS but the shader clock diff will prob more than compensate. I think they will have drop the price on this for people to buy over the cheaper GT.

I think drawing parallels between this card and the GT is a bit of a mistake. Yes, the 8800GT is everyone's poster child right about now but for me its performance at higher resolution (1600x1200) in DX10 applications is paltry compared to the GTS...higher shader clock or not. The OCing of this card will have to wait a little longer because I have another GPU review that needs to be done ASAP. :(

I've read stuff on another forum about people who got the SSC BIOS file from somebody on the the EVGA forum, and they flashed. The thing is that it didn't change the SPs from 96 to 112. Bummer!

Well,
I found the info on mkvtech (and I didn't know about that site or it's credibility).

Re:EVGA e-GeForce 8800 GTS SSC, giving 112 stream shader? - MVKTech Support Forums :: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX 8600 GTS 7950 7900 7600 ATI Radeon HD 2900 XTX X1950 XT X1900 X1650 - MVKTech

PPL tried on both cores (A2,A3) to no avail.

They also come with a weird conclusion (dunno what it's worth).

Some would say that the SSC core could be a GTX core with 16 sp disabled...But suggesting to try to flash to GTX BIOS seems REALLY RISKY...
I realize that both GTS and GTX are sharing the same G80.

But the question is: what do you think?

I say that it doesn't work at all and if you try to flash to the GTX BIOS you run a good risk from making a very expensive paperweight out of your card.
