9800 GTX specs and dissapointing.
 
Some sites that claim they have specs.

KetZone.com GeForce 9800 GTX Card Photos & Specs Unveiled
9800GTX GPU-z screen shot - Expreview.com

and 3d mark score.
9800GTX 3Dmark06 score here - Expreview.com

If these rumors are true then ATI will probably get my monies.

I am not going to put a lot of faith into that 3DM06 score posted as you can easily get 14K on a $220 8800GT :\

9800GTX is going to be an overclocked 8800GTS 512MB card. There is not much to look forward too until the fall....

I'm looking forward to the price drops if there are any. :biggrin:

grr... The fall is so long away.....cries... Well maybe a GTX will do fine. or a X2. Those X2's are probably what I am going to get cause I hate nvidia if they make it this crappy.

whats coming in the fall? thats when Im hoping to upgrade the gpu..........

Personally ill wait for the reviews on this before passing judgment--I wonder if the days of hitting us with massive leaps forward in GPU power are over for a bit...the 8800 revolution is getting a bit long in the tooth now and apart from a smaller core not too much has changed?

wow i totally these were going to be a 'new' generation of cards...oh well, my 8800 gtx should be able to keep up for a while yet then :bananafunky:

belgolas February 27, 2008 08:21 PM

Well even if the 8800 GTX still keeps up we still need faster cards for games like crysis and far cry 2.

I'll bet it scales well for SLI at least

The GX2 is going t be delayed until March 18th now so looks like ATI holds the crown for a little longer

Whelp, ATI's got my money this time around. I've heard some talk of shader tweaks for the 9-series, but nothing beyond that. Not even a process shrink.

Anyone who bought an 8800 GTX when they first came out, or even an Ultra, has got to be laughing their heads off these days.
