|As we're closing in on the one year anniversary of the GeForce 8800 Ultra it's natural to start wondering about the new high-end offers prepared by Nvidia. The Santa Clara company is already known to be getting close to releasing the dual-GPU, dual-PCB GeForce 9800 GX2 but more 9-series cards are on the way, like the 9800 GT and 9800 GTX. As it turns out, the latter is the subject of some new rumors from the far east and they tell the card's story in detail.
Equipped with the 65nm-built G92-420 chips which we spotted in the ForceWare 174.13, the 9800 GTX is said to feature 512 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 2200 MHz, a core clock of 675 MHz and 128 Stream processors at 1688 MHz. All these, coupled with a 256-bit memory interface will make the GeForce 9800 GTX beat the 8800 GTS 512 by a decent margin and almost give AMD's Radeon HD 3870 X2 a run for its money. The release of the GeForce 9800 GTX is expected for early Q2.
I think we're going to dig the prices of these cards.
