|We've heard that Geforce 9800 GX2 dual G92 dual chip sandwich design will end up as expensive as 8800 Ultra if not even more.
The price is not final but this looks like an expensive piece of marchitecture. You are talking about two 8800GTS boards glued together, along with an expensive cooler and of course Nvidia wants to get some profits out of it.
You should be looking at $600 and probably even more for such a card as when we do the math it ends up it will likely be $700+ product in retail but this depends on the territory.
All I can say is, for right now, this is mere speculation. The 9800GX2's counterpart, the ATI 3870X2, will have quite a bit to do with retail prices.
So far, it appears the ATI product will hit the shelves in the next week or two, with the NVIDIA part following sometime in February.
