Check out these quotes from XFX GeForce 9800 GTX reviews & previews
"If performance was our sole criteria this card would not have peaked the meter. While it performs on a par with the highest factory overclocked 8800GTS we have in our arsenal we'll have to admit we were expecting better. We say this because the 9800GTX is supposed to fill the void between the 8800GTS 512MB and the 9800GX2 and from the results we've published we don't see it filling that void."
"In the end the XFX 9800 GTX was so close in performance to the BFG 9800 GTX that it was a dead heat. This is to be expected since the cards are identical save the stickers on their heatsinks. What does set the XFX card apart from the BFG card is the fact that XFX includes a game with their offering. XFX provides the full version of Company of Heroes. Too bad the 9800 GTX doesnt include Call of Duty 4 like the 9600 GT XXX Alpha Dog does. In the end the XFX 9800 GTX is a fantastic video card at an MSRP of $349.99 with loads of performance and hands down faster than anything from ATI in the price range."
"If you are going to create a new card number, like say going from 8800 to 9800, I feel the changes should be significant to warrant such a move. Does the 9800GTX differentiate itself from the 8800 series in raw features or technology? The answer is plainly no my stalwart chums. The main differences here are the ability to use a triple SLI configuration, and a slight increase on the Shader and Core speeds, beyond that it is cosmetically different as it has a new fan configuration and dual power connectors. The drawback with that is that two power connectors require a larger capacity power supply with different connections to accommodate them."
"Although it consistently out-performed the competition in the charts, it still would have been nice to see the 9800 GTX bring just a little bit more to the table. That may seem hypocritical to say -- but at times the performance gap between the 9800GTX and the 8800 GT and 8800 GTS 512MB seemed just a little too small. However, the 9800GTX does make up this with its excellent overclocking potential, which is substantial indeed. A moderately overclocked 9800GTX can fairly be labeled as the new flagship of fast, in my book.
In the end, the rest of NVIDIA's current line-up is the 9800GTX's own worst enemy, but it can not be denied that the while perhaps not as exciting as the 8800GTX was, the 9800GTX is a worthy successor to that 'old' performance crown, and while perhaps it is not as ground-breaking in its design, the 9800GTX is still a damn fine piece of engineering, with enough positive features to leave a lasting impression."
"The real bottom line is that the XFX 9800GTX is a step above the the 8800GTX. Not much of a step, but a step nonetheless. The world domination and massive performance increase that the G80 8800GTX offered over the preceding generation of video cards is not realized with the latest from Nvidia. This release is not just about raw performance, but about giving the whole package to the end user. Hybrid Power capabilities for the energy conscious, performance scaling with Tri-SLI, HDMI output for High Definition gaming or for that Hi-Def HTPC you are building. The XFX 9800GTX can meet just about any need there is for a graphics card."
