If you want a sneak peek at the GeForce 9800 GX2, you’ve come to the right place! We have exclusive pictures, specs and early info right here for your viewing pleasure. If two GeForce 8800 GPUs on a dual PCB, single video card doesn’t make your heart flutter, the fact that these will most likely support quad-SLI surely will. Hit the link above for all the information.
NVIDIA’s yet-to-be released GeForce 9800 GX2 in the “flesh.” We reveal some of the specs and what should be expected.
The best way to think of the GeForce 9800 GX2 card is as an 8800 GPU that has been die shrunk to 65nm and placed in an SLI configuration in a “single” card. The 9800 GX2 is very reminiscent of 7950 GX2
of days past. (And we loved the 7950 GX2 at launch, but terrible support and diminishing returns soon painted it as one of NVIDIA’s biggest failures since the 5800 series
The GeForce 9800 GX2 will launch in late February or early March as it now stands and will replace the 8800 Ultra
(single GPU) card in NVIDIA’s high-end product line up. The 9800 GX2 is said to be 30% faster than a 8800 Ultra. While it is not clear from the pictures below, we are told it will support “Quad SLI.”
GeForce 9800 GX2
- 1GB Frame Buffer
- Two PCBs
- Two 65nm GPUs Total
- 256 Stream Processors Total
All of the information here comes from sources overseas that we consider trustworthy. Obviously there are some specifications that could be a bit more clear, especially on the memory bus. We would expect to see two 768MB frame buffers per GPU here, but that is not what is spelled out. We are guessing 512MB per GPU currently.
