Yes, the performance is similar, but unless the cards are identical on the PCB, there's no way that's possible.

EDIT: whoops... thought the title said 9600 GT.



I hate Fud.

The problem is that can't really be true because then there would be almost no difference in performance between their 9600GT and 9800GT models. I could however understand the 9800GT being a 128SP model with higher clocks. I'm not exactly sure how the 9600GT with 64SP is very close in performance with cards that have double the SP in them. So I would assume that even though on paper it may look really similar, it could be quite a bit faster.

OMG! Tri SLi support! Here i sit with my 2 8800GT's on a 780 SLi board...

nVidia: not cool. :nono:

In a few of the tests the 8800GT was about 30% faster than the 9600GT, so it kinda makes sence. NVidia did say at the end of last year that there would be an updated 8800GT coming out to support 3 way SLI. Although didn't they originally say the 8800GT was gonna support 3 way SLI?

if the 9800 GT is going to be 3 way SLi supported,will only new mobo's coming out be able to use those? Im getting a 780i mother board and running 2 8800 GT's. Just wondering down the road if I wanted to go 3 way if I could run the 9800GT's on that mobo

That would depend on the price and whether you're intending to use 3 way SLI. If they cost the same, the 9800GT is gonna be the way to go. But if that's the case, there would be no point in the 8800GT.

680i and 780i boards will run 3 way SLI with the right gfx card. It's just the 780i is 3 x 16x and the 680i is 2 x 16x + 1 x 8x. But you would need 3 9800GT's.

What a waste. Sure they don't really have any real competition but what are
they waiting for ? If they don't put out a good card and SOON, ATI will most
likely counter with THE card to have for Crysis, and upcoming titles -the next
8800 but in ATI's court..

They should release the GT200/G100 NOW! :captnkill:

More than likely that's what they're waiting for. I'm sure if nVidia really wanted to they could produce and release another card that'd stomp the 8800 6 feet under and play Crysis maxed... and cause ATi to have to close their doors. But I'm not sure that nVidia is after a monopoly on the video card market.

So more than likely, we aren't going to see another uber-performance card untill it comes from ATi. Shortly afterwards nVidia will pop-out their performance beast to compete.

Sounds like a VERY good reason to hope AMD/ATI NEVER closes their doors...............

too true


but... this is confusing, the 9600GT may as well be the 8800GT with slightly slower clocks . . almost the same performance (10% max) . . . so 9600GT may as well be the 9800GT?

9600GT < 8800GT
9800GT = 8800GT
9800GX2 = 2x 8800GT

bah

Well, it is - 9600 is an 8800gt with a few disabled piplelines.

9800gt being a rebranded 8800gt with added 3-sli-support wouldn't surprise in the least :thumbdwn:

The 9600 GT is still slower than the 8800 GT, but not by that much. Read the review on this site. As for the 9600 GT being a rebranded 8800 GT, no way!!!
The 9800 GT I think would have to be faster than an 8800 GTX.

A review had some interesting results when came to performance drops when it came to antialiasing....

Now under no AA conditions...the performance are probably the same.

However, with AA, the performance hit was not as high as current GPUs for the 9600 GT which could mean as stated by that site that the ROPs are now further tweaked. This is difference that may prove the justification of new 9XXX gpus and cards

I don't know if I'll pay a ton extra for some AA. Hopefully its a bit more than that with the new GTX.

Tripple SLI with the 9800GTs? Nice. I can keep my X-fi at the same time.
