Default 9800GTX in Tri-SLI Review

Source

Quote:
It’s clear that NVIDIA has really got its dual GPU SLI technology sorted out, but when you start mixing it up with three or four GPUs the performance increase while present, is very small, especially in relation to what it costs you to go down that route.

The GX2 continues to be a good offering for people who want to jump on the SLI bandwagon without getting themselves a SLI motherboard. However, if you’re looking at building a new system it might be worth checking out a 780i motherboard and a pair of 9800 GTX cards which really gets things pumping.

NVIDIA has been seen to put a lot of effort into the SLI driver as of late, but it seems that most of the energy has gone into getting two cards to run extremely well together as opposed to three or four.
They should of used the 790i.

Around the beginning of April, and will cost around $350 from what I heard.

It's just an overclocked 8800GTS 512.

lol...You guys said this about the 8800 gtx also. That all you have to do is get the 8800gts g92 and OC it and it becomes a 8800 gtx.

But if you OC the 9800 gtx what does that become?

I don't think anyone said that....The 8800GTS g92 and the 8800GTX are pretty different beasts.

I do remember seeing that a few times... That the 8800 gts was just a 8800 gtx without tri sli capabilities...
