Finally we get the card from Yeston today. before busy reviewing the product, we use Rivatuner to read its specification. Because we also have a doubt like you guys: is it really a 112SP card?
We are sure GPU-Z’s database have no info about the card, so we try Rivatuner. Because Rivatuner have a unencrypted database so we can add 8800GS’ device ID “0606″.
After adding the device ID, it is able to read the GPU’s actual speciation: 192-bit G92(A2,96sp) with 384MB DDR3.

So we once again fooled by manufacturer PR,and we are sorry for the misleading information, that’s not we intended to. The card will hit china market this week, and a company even begin their “purchase in advance” campaign.
It looks like a ordinary 8800GT.

By taking away the cooler you can see it is actually a 8800GS.
NVIDIA is going to release Geforce 8800GS 192bit 384MB and 768MB soon, but this time non-reference version comes first. We don’t know it will come so fast, but the card is here. Not only Yeston, but Unika and Gainwand also will release their 8800GS soon. If you like, you can read the small test posted earlier.
The first card showing up today is a Yeston 8800GS 384MB made by Palit. The Card only have 6 memory chip, and the mark on the GPU is G92-150. The SP number is not 96 we mentioned earlier, but 112, the same with 8800GT.
The second card in the next page is 8800GS 192bit 768MB GDDR3. The main difference is the core and shader clock higher than 384MB version. 384MB have a HDMI slot while 768MB have two DVI. 768MB version’s memory chip is from Samsumg, have 12 memory chips totally.
The price tag of 8800GS 384MB will be 1199CNY, about 164USD, 8800GS 768MB will be 1499CNY(same as Sapphire 512M HD3850), about 204USD.
Though this is a Yeston card, but other brand’s first shipment of 8800GS will all look the same, they are all made by Palit. So if you are expecting a different 8800GS, wait for our update.
The card is using Qimonda chips.
You can find a Palit version 8800GT and have a comparing to this card.
