This move makes me wonder how those people feel that paid $429 for the 9800GTX when it was initially relesed...or stepped "up" from a 8800GT/GTS...
|Hoping to divert some attention from AMD's upcoming Radeon HD 4850 Nvidia is preparing a new member of the GeForce 9 family, the GeForce 9800 GTX+. The upcoming card is basically an overclocked 9800 GTX with a great price tag - just $229 and it will feature a GPU frequency of 738 MHz (675 MHz on the 'regular' 9800 GTX), shaders clocked at 1836 MHz (1688 MHz) and 512 MB of GDDR3 memory likely 'still' at 2200 MHz.
Due to the introduction of the 9800 GTX+, the GeForce 9800 GTX will go down to a $199 price point. No word on when the + cards will hit the stores though.
