Default NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX Benchmarked

Initial pricing on the 9800 GTX looks promising; down under we should see it pop up for under $500 AUD which puts it into a bracket that doesn’t really exist at the moment.

For roughly 15% more (sometimes less) in the money department you can get yourself an HD 3870 X2 and this really is going to be the GTX’s toughest competition. While the X2 may be a dual GPU card it doesn’t carry the excessive price tag that we see on NVIDIA’s dual GPU card, the GeForce 9800 GX2. We all know these dual cards don’t always provide great performance in all games due to untweaked driver support, so our tests today should be rather interesting indeed.

Even though this is one of our typical early tests using drivers available at the time of testing, NVIDIA’s 9800 GTX is a fantastic product - at times it’s even able to perform on par with the GX2 and sometimes even better if the game isn’t able to make full use of SLI technology. What makes the GTX so attractive though is the price point – although, we must say that, when push comes to shove, the choice to not spend slightly more on the HD 3870 X2 is going to be a hard one to make, if you are neither an AMD nor NVIDIA fan. With the advancements AMD make in its Catalyst drivers every month, you have to wonder in two months time how the HD 3870 X2 and new GTX are going to fair against each other.
interesting!!
