|The massively-unimpressive launch of the first two GeForce 9800 cards was expected to be followed shortly by the release of the replacement for the 8800 GT. Nvidia's 9800 GT was expected to feature the same 'old' G92 chip and 112 Stream Processors plus triple SLI support. Now, according at the guys @ VR-Zone the GeForce 9800 GT has not only been pushed back until July, but it will also get a chip makeover and embrace the 55nm shrink of the G92.
The 55nm G92b will mean lower power requirements and heat output and, of course, better overclocking capabilities, which should help the 9800 GT with fighting AMD's RV770-powered cards. Now we just have to wait.
