View Full Version : New card?

Isn't it nice that Nvidia thought so much of it's loyal customer to rebag the G92 into four different cards each with a different name and different clocks by a tiny bit oh and one where they slapped two together. I remember the days when someone said they had a new product it was actually different from their others. Looks like now you'll have to start skipping every other release in order to get new technology not the same tech rebagged. Odd that the 9800gtx a G92 chip requires two 6 pin pci-e power leads but the 8800gts also a G92 only needs one. It's the same chip, same amount of stream processors, same 512mb on 256bit but yet it needs twice the power. That extra plug and the longer PCB must be what the extra $100.00-$130.00 is for, can't be for anything else. They're the same card with a difference in stock clock speeds and if you look at the reviews it's barely ahead of an 8800gts 512 sometimes by only 1-2 fps, that's worth a $100 aint it? Maybe it is just an April fools joke and the real release is later this month but I'm not gonna hold any breath.

Yeah in some cases the 8800GTS outdoes the 9800GTX. What a ripoff.

And you couldn't have posted this in the 9800GTX review thread?
