no thats right

100% performance is 1 8600gts

and theres a 90% performance gain, 190% performance of the 8600gts

but 90% performance gain

LOL ya maroon1 is going to be mad, now if only AMD could win back the CPU Crown, imagine how mad he'd be then!

my close friend is gonna be ****ed...........im pretty sure he was looking into the 9800 GX2. However, i think that we need to see benchmarks before jumping to conclusions. Who knows, we all might get fooled n the 9800 GX2 does better than we thought.

With a $680 price tag and only "up to" a 90% performance increase from a 8600GT, this card won't be very popular. From what it looks, does anybody actually believe the upcoming 9 series deserves to be labeled as a new series? They should have just labeled the 9800s to 8900s like what they did with the 7 series.

The thing that gets me is that usually the marketing on this stuff is over exaggerated, 190% 8600GT power sounds pretty weak for a high-end 9 series card. Maybe it's a typo?
