They've got the same model number, so they should perform similarly right guys?

Right?... :p 

Just think about it: the next generation Geforces might include the 9800 and 9600... Legendary Radeon numbers! :!:

The 8800.

Funny thing is I wonder how the TruForm portion would do.

It was wicked taxing on the R9700 without the hardware but easy on the 8500 because it had dedicated hardware.

Still my money is on the Nokia 8800: http://www.nokia8800.com/ :mrgreen: :trophy: :mrgreen:

PS, I think if I OC'ed the R9600P enough it could take a GF9600Ultra. 8)

Nah, too many lawsuits will ensue. But if they do come out, we should start charging for help on this forum. We'll make a fortune out off idiots wanting to know what's faster: Radeon 9600 or GeForce 9600.

And the day someone comes in saying "I traded my GeForce 9600 in for a Radeon 9800, and for some strange reason it's slower" is the day I declare human stupidity complete.

No, it all depends in how many led fans you have in the case :!:

I'm thinking the Geforce 8800 might have a slight advantage in a few games.

hmm.... I supose they had an agreement on names ( betwen ATI and Nvidia ) to clasify their cpus,cause if that wasnt the case, ATI would have sued Nvidia on the 8800 name.

cause they had it from a looong time...
besides... after the FX series, they went for the same naming structure as ATI with numericals where in ABCD
A = family or generation , B power level ( as in gpu power) and C revision (the 8850 usually is a better and revised version of 8800)
so.. bleh :p

You can't sue over a model number... no judge would grant a successful patent of a numeral.

Unless you are the CEO of Peugot.

Peugot own the patent over a model name which is 3 numbers long and has a 0 as the centre number.

Ok, I admit, that's the most "asking for it" statement since the "Stop stupid quoting" thread.
