Concidering the X2 launched at 549, then got cut tor 499, which is still its MSRP till they officially announce the price cut to 449, 499 isn't bad for a new card on the market vs one that has been out for a couple months now.

Another thing is that performance wise, it is better than the X2 in most cases.

How was microstutter addressed? Cause the 9800GX2 was the worst performing card in real world apps I've ever owned, sure it benched great but it sucked in games. Can't see these being any different.

I wont be updating my CPU/Platform till Nvidia releases their next design. I can wait out 1 early gen chipset from intel I have a 790I but I just dont see any real difference between the two.

To be honest this was the very first thing I tested for.

For some reason World in Conflict just hated the 9800GX2's, and they performed pretty poorly, (likely due to 512MB framebuffer) So this was practically the first game I loaded up, and I am happy to report no microstuttering at all

Have you tested on other games? Crysis for instance? How does the min. FPS perform vs 3-way SLI?

Both 3 Way and 4 Way SLI start the map of Crysis with low framerates. Then SLI scaling kicks in and it goes away.

If I haven't seen it first hand I honestly wouldn't believe it. I had alot of problems with the 9800GX2 stuttering, pausing (Assassin's Creed, GOW, RS Vegas 2), low min FPS. I vowed to never use one of these cards again since I got sucked in with the 7950GX2 and the 9800GX2. I went back to a single 8800GTX which was slower than the 9800GX2 but the gaming experience was 300 times better to me.

That said I won't ever use one of these cards again until Nvidia or ATI can put out some hard evidence that this has been addressed fully. Its funny how none of the reviews touched on this with any of the dual cards. But they go on about it's benchmarked performance. Showing me a high average framerate means nothing when to me it's unplayable with stuttering and pausing. I consider the on net reviews to be half the problem.

Let me just ask you this.. Why, if you had problems with the 9800GX2 was that never mentioned on Nvnews? I know you work for EVGA but being part of the solution is alot more genuine than being part of the problem. I remember seeing the pics of your rig with the GX2s and how fast it was in 3dmark, but as far as I can recall you never mentioned having issues with it when they launched? I'd just like to see some reviews actually address problems like this with dual cards and not just spit out generic benchmarks with numbers but alas why would they jeopardize their free meal for me.
