Today Nordichardware has posted an impressive round-up with no less than 7 Radeon 9800 boards. Though Anton was not very impressed by the new ATI cards:
"When it comes to ATis new 256 MB board I can't really say that I'm impressed. Initial rumors indicated that this board would run faster than the 128 MB version but the only thing clocked higher is the memory and this is only to defeat the added latency of using DDR-II. In some few odd cases the extra 128 MB VRAM does make a difference though but these cases are few and far between."
