both of the are G92 core.

the question is are there any benefits? cause i havent seen any performance of 9800GTX (didnt release yet)

More about 9800gtx 8800gts
  1. You can tri SLI the 9800GTX.

    Other than that, how much can you get the 8800GTS 512MB? If it's both the same price, get the 9800GTX.
  2. GTX is around 300...so I'd go GTX since I read its atleast as fast as an Ultra
  3. does the 9 series have any architecture improvements ? (such as 7 series over the 6 series, Penryn over conroe ... )
  4. It compresses the data flow, allowing for more info thruput using a narrower bus width 256bit. Its an improvement on all the 9 series, but not much is known according to anantech : bus. The differences between G9x and G8x are small, but even so details were light. Their compression technology has evolved to provide higher effective bandwidth between the GPU and framebuffer. We would love to provide more details on this and the other changes, but NVIDIA is still being a bit tight lipped."
    Plus theres the pure video full HD support, which offloads almost all work from the cpu to the gpu
  5. Well their pure video technology is apparently higher than that of 8 series like Jaydeejohn said with the HD things. They also seem to consume less power and yield at least the same or better results

    The 8800GT has this compression technology as well. The 8800GT is basically a 9 series card.
  7. yes but it doesn't match up to the 9800 GTX or the 8800 GTS 512 lol
  8. All g9xxx series have this ability
  9. I'm just talking about performance lol
