NVIDIA GeForce 9800

Details aren't quite hard and fast, but this is NVIDIA's top-of-the-line to-be, so it's never too early to start nerding out. HardOCP says the best way to think of the GeForce 9800 GX2 is a 8800 that's been shrunk down to 65nm and SLI'd onto a "single" card. The card is supposed to be at least 30% faster than a 8800 Ultra, and will apparently support Quad SLI. So, now for the really nerdy part:

* 1GB frame buffer
* Two PCBs
* Two 65nm GPUs
* 256 Stream Processors

That's the way HardOCP tells it, and who are we to argue?
Coming to a store near you for $15, 999!

God damnit! How hard was it to go with 8900 instead of 9800! Now NOOBS will get confused with the older ati card!

So will a system with this card be able to run Crysis maxed out?

Perhaps. Until Crysis is patched due to its bugs there is no real way of knowing if anyone can already play the game at max.

There could be memory leaks and such that hinder players.

So since it's SLI'd onto the card itself is the quad SLI just two of these monsters?

If we are to take any of the recent speculative information as fact - it seems the earlier information on some sites that the 9800 would outperform an 8800 Ultra by at least a 2:1 ratio is (as expected) gibberish. Estimates are rather conservative now - "at least 30% faster". NVIDIA itself has been rather silent on the technical capabilities of the 9800.

I'm curious how much better the final product will be than the 8800 models - and whether the price (and games that take advantage of that extra power) will justify the purchase in the near future.

We'll most likely see some benchmarks in a couple weeks.
