looks promising if twice as fast as 8600gt depending on price. personally i can't wait for the high end 9xxx card (9800gt?). too bad they did not include a date or price though.

More about : details 9600gt nvidia

Ati is already planning on moving to 45nm....

ATI is on 55nm while Nvidia is on 65nm but that still hasn't won ATI any better performance over 8800gtx

but more advantages.

i dont think high end enthusists care about power consumption, if some1 pulled 120 nm gpu that was better the 8800gtx i think people would sli that!

ChileHardware published slides yesterday claiming the GeForce 9600 requires a 400W power supply that requires 26A on the 12V rail. Unlike previous mid-range GeForce cards, the D9M will require a 6-pin supplementary power connector.

I was impressed until that portion was mentioned. This is ratcheting up the price of low/mid-range gaming (ie, sticking an 8600gt in a college Dell @ ~300 watts and running a 19").

I am really doubting this 9800GX2. If that is really a true 9800 card... I am really pissed at Nvidia. I want to see 2x the performance like they said.... not 30% faster with two 8800 cores.

with all the hype surrounding the 9800gx2 the review in the other thread makes it seem like Nvidia is gonna milk these g92 cores until DAAMIT comes up with something that can rival the 8800gtx

i with u spaz. if 9600 2x 8600, i would have expected the 9800 to be close to 2x the 8800. oh well, have to wait and see in march.
