A lot of people thought that the 9800 would be really fast. And to be honest, this shouldn't even be a 9-series card in my opinion. I think it should be the 8800 GX2, because it's just 2 G92 GTS cards in a one card package... it isn't really a new generation of cards.

When people said that the 9800 would be really really fast, they assumed that it would be a new generation with new architechture, not a rehash of current gen hardware.
bingo ^^ i never believed 9 series would be twice as fast. thats just stupid. but i did and still do expect (hope) for a 50% increase over the ultra.

i'll be waiting for the real deal and not a fake 9800 ;p and if.. retardedly, that Is the real deal. I may as well keep what I have and save myself the headache. XD

edit~ LOL vern!!!!!!!!!

Well if this card overclocks well then I can see it going up to 150% performance of an Ultra or possibly even higher.

If this card can play Crysis on max settings, then I can already see the conversations:

"Daddy, where does the sea come from?"

"The Sea? Why it's people drooling over the 9800GX2, son."

if it does max out Crysis (which wouldn't be a shock) people wouldn't care, I've seen a lot of Crysis haters

Many cards can max out crysis. Maybe your saying with decent frame rates?
Maxed out with a fps of 50 or greater?? Ok then, thats something to write home about..


I can max everything out with the custom graphics file, 16Q AA, 1440X900, 20-25 FPS.
Not that great by any stretch of the imagination.

I meant max out with great frame rates and at a good resolution, not the sub-30's that everyone with high end systems are currently getting. If nvidia makes a GPU that will max out Crysis at 1920x1200 with at least 40-45 fps, I would definitely buy it, and I wouldn't upgrade for quite some time.

I see where you are coming from, but a lot of high end users have higher resolutions like 1680x1050 and 1920x1200, which is what I'll be upgrading to soon. It's what makes spending half a grand on a GPU worthwhile.
