quote CrankyOldBastardOnly one is about the same price as the 9800 while the others are still $80-100 more at the moment. Its a great buy for people with older rigs looking to check out DX10 with great playability vs people who just upgraded to a 8 series based card... Seriously I knew this thing wasnt going to be that great and it wasnt hard to tell due to the manufacturing processes available right now along with the slow competition like you noted... Also dude if you dont like the reviews then stay a grumpy ass troll on another forum site like the hard oc forums where they the review products how you feel is right.Garbage, garbage, garbage, this card is no better than the 8800gtx. Nvidia will keep putting out the same card under a different name until ATI comes out with a strong competitor. You can't even say it's a good buy considering NewEgg is selling the 8800GTX for $50 less. And please, stop relying on reviews from this site, the testing methods are less than adequate. This is a superior review .
quote Iceguy2003Nah its the truth.I'm still hoping all these reviews are April Fool's jokes. Guess that would have been unveiled by now. The 9800GTX was rumored to be twice the card of an 8800GTX in real world testing. WTF happened to that?
This review here from neo mirrors what the one from hardocp says, practically. And they both are saying that the 8800GTX and GTS are practically the same performance as the 9800GTX, sometimes better, sometimes worse, but always within a few fps.
Gay if you ask me.
Come on, tell me it's a joke. TELL ME!!!
quote CrankyOldBastardIt's true that the 8800GTX and 9800GTX offer very similar levels of performance. In fact at *really* higher resolutions, you are better off going with the 8800GTX.Garbage, garbage, garbage, this card is no better than the 8800gtx.

quote Crash65675I am wondering if anyone can suggest which may be faster for 1920x1200 w/FSAA and SLI configuration:
9800GTX or a Palit GeForce 8800 GTS 1GB Sonic
8800 GTS Sonic____730___ 1625?____1050_____1GB GDDR3____256-bit
9800 GTX__________675___ 1688_____1100_____512MB GDDR3__256-bit
quote TweakerThanks dude.Dang I just looked on newegg and it was $325... not too bad at all man though thats probably the $100 price difference for the 320mb mem bus lol. Dunno thats a random guess of mine but for real that is a good buy for people who have older X1k or 7 series cards. Another good review Kevin.
