2900xt's WERE crap though. The 3870X2 has already proven itself in games. Whether it can compete with the 9800GX2 is something we've yet to see.

the 2900XT's were far from crap... they just comsumed the same amount of power that usally 2 videocards would normally comsume.

When you put on AA they were crap. Without AA they did pretty well.

the word on xs is just a higher binned 8800gts g92

the way i've been seeing it.. there is no need to release the g100 yet.. as there is no competition for it... why make the mistake of making the first release way before the competitor?

the g92's are still incredibly new.. and i'm sure they need to get rid of em.. so why not make just another card w/ it?... i really doubt they will be using g100

GeForce 9800GTX is not a Power-hungry monster - XtremeSystems Forums

there you go... 9800gtx g92...

its just a 8800gts clocked higher and Tri-SLi ability.. they're just trying to market tri-sli at cheaper prices...

for a price of 550 i dotn see a point in getting a 9800gtx over 8800gts g92.
