If this card is really this fast I am SOOOOO going SLi. Please please please be true. I want some KILLER performance in Crysis and all the newer games coming.

XFX said that the GX2 is suppose to be at 70c. Thats hot IMO

Thats defiantly very hot...bad airflow?

I'm running a ThermalTake Armor case with 2 x 120MM intake fans, 1 x 120MM, and 2 x 80 mm exhaust fans. All of my cables are neatly tucked away (thank gods for SATA!) so airflow should be good.

Maybe the temp in ure room is hot?

If the hardware is based on the G8x architecture, then it's going to be no where near another FX5800. Unless they drastically change the architecture in the worst possible way, I don't see how improvements to the architecture could suddenly create another Nv3x in terms of shading power.

No I meant FX5800 in terms of it's failure as a generation vs. ATI's offerings.

Ambrose posted that DT verified the rumors, so I'm thinking this card should be a beast.

NVIDIA's upcoming Summer 2008 lineup gets some additional details

Later this week NVIDIA will enact an embargo on its upcoming next-generation graphics core, codenamed D10U. The launch schedule of this processor, verified by DailyTech, claims the GPU will make its debut as two separate graphics cards, currently named GeForce GTX 280 (D10U-30) and GeForce GTX 260 (D10U-20).

The GTX 280 enables all features of the D10U processor; the GTX 260 version will consist of a significantly cut-down version of the same GPU. The D10U-30 will enable all 240 unified stream processors designed into the processor. NVIDIA documentation claims these second-generation unified shaders perform 50 percent better than the shaders found on the D9 cards released earlier this year.

The main difference between the two new GeForce GTX variants revolves around the number of shaders and memory bus width. Most importantly, NVIDIA disables 48 stream processors on the GTX 260. GTX 280 ships with a 512-bit memory bus capable of supporting 1GB GDDR3 memory; the GTX 260 alternative has a 448-bit bus with support for 896MB.

GTX 280 and 260 add virtually all of the same features as GeForce 9800GTX: PCIe 2.0, OpenGL 2.1, SLI and PureVideoHD. The company also claims both cards will support two SLI-risers for 3-way SLI support.

Unlike the upcoming AMD Radeon 4000 series, currently scheduled to launch in early June, the D10U chipset does not support DirectX extentions above 10.0. Next-generation Radeon will also ship with GDDR5 while the June GeForce refresh is confined to just GDDR3.

The GTX series is NVIDIA's first attempt at incorporating the PhysX stream engine into the D10U shader engine. The press decks currently do not shed a lot of information on this support, and the company will likely not elaborate on this before the June 18 launch date.

After NVIDIA purchased PhysX developer AGEIA in February 2008, the company announced all CUDA-enabled processors would support PhysX. NVIDIA has not delivered on this promise yet, though D10U will support CUDA, and therefore PhysX, right out of the gate.

NVIDIA's documentation does not list an estimated street price for the new cards.

To bad I'll have to take second mortgage out on my house just to afford two of them. That AnandTech article says they will probably be priced higher than the 9800GX2, I'm sorry but I love PC gaming but I'm tired of spending $1200+ just to play some games. I know you get what you pay for however what pisses me off is there is generally such a pathetic gap in performance between high end and mid range that it's just stupid. What ever, I will pass on it, I don't care if it can make my toast.

Then don't. Who's forcing you to SLI? Who's forcing you to use every bell and whistle? I finished Crysis on my 8800GTX at 1680x1050, Max DX9 details, no AA/16xAF. The only place the game slowed down was the final battle, for which I took the resolution down to 1440x900. I mean enough with this crap about having to pay loads of money to enjoy a game. A mate plays games with a 1600 Pro, another plays on a X1800XT. Enough about not having a good experience with a 9800GX2 and now with a SINGLE GTX280. I don't buy it, neither does anyone else I believe...

GT200 has 1.4 billion transistors inside, sell for $600+

Damn... I'm definitely not getting one of those any time soon then. :p

Luckily for me, when I called to order a 9800GX2 from a local store, they didn't have any. I'm definitely getting one of these. I've paid this much before, don't mind doing it again. It's a lot of money, but I believe it will be worth it... :)

If I had the money I'd definitely buy one. The specs we've seen so far look fantastic.

If I suddenly found $300 laying around though, I'd ebay my 8800 a week before the GTX 280 was released and buy one on release day. :p

Yeah I'm definitely buying three of these for TRI-SLI :) unless the ATI cards do better :P

I am also 100% going to get one as well.

My 8800 GTX has served me well but will be on ebay soon. Still not decided between nVidia and ATI

better sell your 8800 gtx now because when these hit, the prices of every other card are going to drop 20% :P

9800GT GPU-Z Info leaked

It seemed chiphell forum has leaked the Rivatuner and GPU-Z information of NVIDIA unannounced GeForce 9800 GT graphics chip.

Now Forceware 175.75 has already supported GeForce 98000 GT and from RivaTuner 2.06, we can see GeForce 9800 GT also has 112 sp, the same as GeForce 8800 GT. The newest version of GPU-Z can’t fully display the information of GeForce 9800 GT.

Okay don't get offended, but do you work for PCZilla? Serious question.

damn are ya all millionares?

if the retial U.S is 600 then i guess swedish tag is about 5600 or so even if i ordered one from the states it would cost me 3600 SEK in sween probably 2000more
