Wtf? You have got to be shitting me. Earlier news stated that there would be 768MB of mem and a 384bit mem interface. And I don't think Nvidia would release such an underpowered product since the clocks are only very slightly higher than an 8800 Ultra. Take this with several handfuls of salt.

so have i... im looking for the end result... i was told that there was gonna be ddr5 on the gx2... but its still ddr 3... so until its confirmed we shd just take it with a pinch of salt... in not really impressed with the 9 series... just a die shrink.. though im hoping there was a slight core revamp since they did mention a new layout....

the big though would be the g100... 9 series wont be around long...

This 9800GTX got be a real big jump serious, if not its not well worth the wait and price...


512 bit of 1GB GDDR4 with 256SP would be a more plausible specs for 9800GTX, but as you see this isnt going to happen...


Guess this will be a disappointment... Look like I going for HD4870 instead, and with better ATi driver releasing in march

i wouldn hop ship just yet... nvidia promised 2 times the power of the prev gen cards... but the 9 series doesn look like it will perform... i believe its just there to soak up whatever income they can get before making it EOL.... just like what intel did with the c2d 6x50 procs...

9800 GTX is dissapointment, but I don't know why you are comparing it to HD4870? 9800 GTX is current gen, HD4870 is next gen. Perhaps you should wait for G100 since it will be launched around same time as R700.

Who ever said 9800GTX will have GDDR5 is a retard, thats the HD4870 which will have GDDR5, ATI is always first to use newer memory.

Geforce 9 series won't have any major architectural difference from 8 series, 9 series will just have more stream processors for the most part.

BTW, those pictures don't show shit!
This is bullcrap for all I know
what the fk exactly are they showing with those pictures?
It shows a 8800GTS 512mb with 8 ROPs,BS!

Geforce 9 cards are nothing more than new G92-8800 variants; 9800-series use same G92's as 8800 GT/GTS 512. 9800 GTX's G94-420-A2 is still same A2-revision as previous G92's.

It's also possible that Nvidia's G100 will also use GDDR5. It would be weird if Nvidia would keep using GDDR3 for highend.. I mean they first used GDDR3 back in Geforce FX days.

Hmm.. this site tells us that there is "certain capabilieties" disabled in G92-A2, which are re-enabled in G92-A3 and these chips would come soon.

They tweak G80 arhitecure a little bit to suit newer games but at a lower production cost why use 384 bit interface if 256 bit is enough and cheaper then reduce GPU size again cheaper then raise freq. to compensate for lower bandwidth.
G80 was all they can do all the way but now not really they started battling in prices and reduced quality and a lot of driver cheats i've read an article about this cheats and they go heavy on them
http://enthusiast.hardocp.com/articl...50aHVzaWFzdA==
but i would not take seriously the results ATI has from that site if you look on your right there is a BANNER ADVERTISING BFG 8800GTS so they couldn't upset the sponsor but the point is right heavy cheating and most of the time no actual improvement.
G 9000 series if actually g80 at 65 nm and with a little tweaks to the arhitecture to make it cheaper and still good at 256 bit.
