NVIDIA is set to allow its partners like XFX and BFG to over clock the G80 8800 series graphics cards in January. For some reason NVIDIA reportedly asked that the 8800 cards not be over clocked at launch.

I suspect that we will see a slew of overclocked 8800 GTS and 8800 GTX cards early next year from XFX especially as their XXX series cards tend to push GPUs well past stock numbers.The Inquirer is speculating that the move to allow overclocking of the 8800 series cards is to help offset the launch of the ATI R600 that is set to launch around the same time. Since the 8800 series, cards have three different clock speeds I suspect we can look forward to significant performance increases. Buy your own 8800 series card here.
