Both G80 cards, Geforce 8800 GTS and GTX are designed by Asus.
The first batch of cards will be differentiated by a sticker on the cooler. GTX is bigger and has two power connectors while GTS has single power connector and is shorter. They both have the same massive cooler.
The launch date is the 8th of November but samples are slowly floating around and if you are on Nvidia's VIP list you already have one. If not you will have to wait for a while for its partner to have them ready. DX10 hardware is finally materialising and Asus has made an effort to make it possible. µ
