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. [H]ard|OCP 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 [H]ard|OCP tells it, and who are we to argue?

As long as they come with a GT version that runs around $300, I'm satisfied :D

reminds me of the 7950GX2 Fiasco : driver nightmares, overheating, meager performance gains for a VERY hefty premium compared to the generation released 3 months later
that's a skip for me

they'd better bring the real Mono Chip Series 9 asap instead of releasing POS's like that

Chances are that is not the final design, but an in-house design.

Obviously not. If triple sli doesn't run Crysis well, this won't either.

That's nice but I'm more interested in the mid-range 9000 cards.
