Subject: Graphics Cards | June 19, 2008 - 07:49 AM | Ryan Shrout
Sure, you've already heard the news (and probably seen reviews) of AMD's Radeon HD 4850 and 4870 card - we'll have our own review ready very soon. NVIDIA apparently got the news as well and decide to try and put some additional pressure on AMD to perform.
The answer: GeForce 9800 GTX+.
What the hell?
- MSRP: $229
- Core clock: 738 MHz
- Shader clock: 1836 MHz
- 512MB GDDR3 Memory @ ~1000 MHz
- 2- and 3-Way SLI support
- kick in the ass
What makes this all possible? The 9800 GTX+ is the 55nm refresh of G92 - all current 9800-series cards are built on 65nm technology.
