XFX GeForce 8800 GT 256MB Graphics Card Review

From PC Perspective:

As you might be able to guess, the main difference between this new GPU and the previous one is the move to 256MB of memory instead of 512MB.  They have the same number of stream processors as well as the same core and shader clock speeds.  The memory system is still a 256-bit memory bus, though the new 256MB model obviously has half the memory and a range of frequencies from 700 MHz to 900 MHz depending on the board vendors' preferences.  The speed of the memory will also affect the price of the card as you can get 800 MHz modules much cheaper than 900 MHz, etc.

There really isn't much new in the looks of the new 8800 GT 256MB cards -- in fact I would bet that without having them side by side with an original 8800 GT 512MB card, you wouldn't be able to tell them apart.
