Default GeForce 9800 GX2 Pics & Specs

The GeForce 9800 GX2 will launch in late February or early March as it now stands and will replace the 8800 Ultra (single GPU) card in NVIDIA's high-end product line up. The 9800 GX2 is said to be at least 30% faster than a 8800 Ultra. While it is not clear from the pictures below, we are told it will support "Quad SLI."

Nvidia is not insane. They would have to be insane to not release a new architecture after a year and a half. In that same timeframe ATI has released their own high-end, and then revised and fixed all the problems with it and re-released it just as Nvidia finally did with the 8800GT 512mb.

Nvidia has had G100/D9E sitting in the closet, but if they hold onto that design until ATI launches a competing product, then basically they just blew away whatever development lead they had over ATI. ATI should have working R700 silicon fairly shortly, if not already...

you threads were posted hours after this one
we'll let time decide whether these specs are real, I don't think it's worth much, 2x9800 cores only result in 30% faster than 8800 Ultra, not too impressed

regarding webnews, you can always send in interesting newsies to news@madshrimps.be ; we receive PR from most larger companies and post them here as well as hundreds of affliate sites (like hardocp)

I wonder how many people will be stupid enough to fall for Quad-Sli this time.

A dual slot GPU card in quad configuration : on what board they'll do that ?

I say at least the quad sli thing is fake, unless they mean the same thing as with the former 7950GX2, just 4 gpu's or 2 dual slot cards.

That was exactly what they meant. Two 9800GX2 cards in SLI for actual Quad-SLI. Some other site was showing photos of them in the Quad configuration.

So what's revolutionary about that ? Poor show, unless they actually can get it to work now

I never said it was revolutionary.

If anything, two 8800GT 512mb cards would offer much better than 30% performance over a 8800Ultra... so this 9800GX2 doesn't seem that powerful.
