Some benchmarks with 8800GT SLI and 9800GTX?

Hey, I was interested to see how well two 8800GT 512 perform in SLI compared to the new 9x series, but I wasn't able to find some good reviews with benchmarks for it. Only ones I've found didn't have any of the new cards. Does anyone have any links to any like that?

Uh. The 8800GT 512 is pretty much exactly the same as the 9800GTX, so they'd clobber it in SLI-enabled games. The "new" cards are the GTX2*0 ones. 8800GT SLI keeps pace with both the GTX280 an GTX260.

No,its the 8800GTX which is equal (and better in higher resolutions +AA and AF) to a 9800GTX, the 8800GT is a little slower

2 8800GT 512 beat every current "Single" card including a GTX 280 in the market in almot all games

Here is the benchmark u are looking for:

I know, but they're still pretty much the same card. If you OC the 8800GTs, they'll perform on par with the 9800GTX.

I am buying a new system and I just can't make up my mind if I want to get an SLI-capable mobo and install a second 8800gt to the one I have, or just buy one better card (whenever that becomes available).

No, the 9800gtx is 15% faster in all scenarios. And you can overclock it too, and it will still be 15% faster than an overclocked gt.

...or 2% slower than 8800gts.

9800gtx is Nvidia's cash cow. Don't get milked... :na:

The 8800GTS 512Mb and the 9800GTX are the same cards. The 8800GT is different, as it has fewer shaders. They are all based of the same chip, so they are related, but not the same.

The 8800GT in SLI should be enough to beat any single card out there. I would think in a high enough resolution the new GTX 2x0 cards would be able to beat it due to the small frame buffer found on the 8800GT. If you are looking for something that might rival the 4850, two 8800GT's in SLI would be it. It would cost a bit more, but the performance gains would probably be worth it.

The memory on the 9800gtx is quite a bit faster than the 8800gts, thus it generally will outperform an 8800gts when both are overclocked reasonably.

Thats right,its the 8800GTS 512 which performs like the 9800GTX, 8800GT 512 is slower because as 4745454b said the shaders of 9800GTX and GTS 512 are the same(128 Stream processors) but the GT model has fewer shaders(112 stream processors)

122? Thats not a multiple of four, so I'd think its lower. 112 is probably right, but I'm just guessing based of what what I remember. (I know its higher then 100.)

Yeah its 112:)  i mean 112 but typed wrong :D  sorry, will edit it :)
