bah why doesnt it compare with 8800 gts g92

"he GTX is a great single GPU graphics card which is pretty much going to halt any future purchases on the G92 8800GTS but it is not revolutionary, which is what a new naming scheme should be as far as we are concerned. If you were hoping for some really huge improvements over the 8800GTS, you’ll have to wait for Nvidia’s new technology. "

This seems contradictory to me. It says ppl will buy 9800gtx over the 8800 gts but also says its not much better than the 8800gts. IT DOESNT EVEN COMPARE IT TO THE 8800 GTS!

ya i just whent thru them all finlaly its split preaty evenly across between the 3870x2 and the 9800gx2, what i do like to see tho is in some games liek crysis especially the 9800gtx outperformed both the 3870x2 and the 9800gx2.

This is also tweaktown. So take it with a HUGE grain of salt.

TweakTown's reviews often leave a lot to be desired. It's hard to get excited about this card, it's just a 8800GTS with Tri-SLI ability and higher clocks. I'll pass.

From that info...at high rez and with AA....I get the following.

1. 9800GX2

2. 3870X2

3. 9800GTX

Would the 8800 GTX then the 8800GTS 512 be next?
