GeForce 9800 GTX specs leaked

By on March 17, 2008, 3:48 PM
It looks like the final details of Nvidia’s GeForce 9800 GTX have escaped ahead of its public debut in the form of some leaked presentation slides at VR-Zone’s forums. The new single-chipset flagship card will reportedly have a shader clock of 1.69GHz, a core clock of 675MHz, a memory clock of 1.1GHz, and 512MB of GDDR3 memory.

Though Nvidia is yet to confirm any of this, a GPU-Z screenshot and a 3DMark06 score from Expreview seem to back up the latest leaks concerning Nvidia's forthcoming GeForce 9800 GTX. Cards are due to be announced on March 25 and should sell between $299 and $349 depending on the vendor and the card's features.

Yawn, and they are releasing this thing and calling it 9800 because?Ohh, must be because it will be slower than the 8800GTX 768MB in high resolution SLI setups like you need for an Apple Cinema 30" displayMeh, time for ATI to take back the crown a year or so it seems, this incremental upgrade game by nVidia is getting redicelous!Oh, and don't get me started on the "9800" GX2

It looks like some pretty nice performance regardless. For full quality at those resolutions on those games it's not to bad. I was hoping for more of a bigger bang though, quite a disapointment. At least the price isn't as high. I'd still get a 8800 GT though. Still no direct x 10.1 support either T_T I don't think it deserves the 9800 GTX name though, lets hope these are fake.[Edited by whiffen on 2008-03-17 17:05:55]

I think with the ho-hum specs of its 9xxx video cards and the the finicky 7xx chipsets, nvidia is opening itself up to be be overtaken by both AMD and Intel. I hope nvidia will release something better but we have to wait and see the benchmarks performed on these cards before passing judgment.
