Default 9800GTX to get a new performance driver

Nvidia plans to launch a new Geforce 9800GTX driver and we’ve learned that you should expect a severe performance increase compared to current drives.

We know that this performance jump will affect 9800GTX, but as its G92-based card the new driver might speed up some other G92-based products. Nvidia is doing this simply, as with current drivers Radeon 4850 and 4870 are getting too close to 9800GTX performance and Nvidia wants to make a stand.

Where's the logic in holding back a driver related performance boost?

If the GTX does to good in benchmarks, the GTX280 will do bad. Nvidia decreased the performance of the GX2 in it's latest 280 drivers to let the 280 look better in Vantage.
