Default Re: Why a GeForce GTX 280 is still much better than a 9800 GX2 or 8800 GT SLI

I cross my fingers too, cause i need "something" with higher bandwidth to finally upgrade to 1920x1200 & do not complain about the framerate with SSAA 2x.

Also, i hope that if nVidia goes with GDDR5 (perhaps after watching the performance of the 4870X2), they keep the 512bit bus, & the number of ROPs. They did it properly with the G70->G71.
