Possible New 9800 GTX+ Version (single PCI express connector)

I was on newegg and I saw this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130416

It's labeled as a 9800 GTX+, same clock speeds, but it has a different cooler and only one 6 pin PCI Express connector. I haven't been able to find anything on this and it doesn't seem to be on the EVGA site. Anyone know anything about this card?

  2. Looks like it might be a new product.I've looking at thesuperclocked n874,ithas 2x6 pin connectors.Can't tell if one is a power hog or the other is a power saver.It makes me nervous not to be running enough voltage to gpu may cause heat issues. No reviews doesn't help either. you might try EVGA 24/7 tech support.Telephone #888-881-EVGA it's toll free live person.If they don't know much about it ask about step-up program at later date (within 90 days).Hope this will help.
  3. I'm running a EVGA 9800 GT : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130384
    EVGA customer service is second to none, Call them they'll be glad to explaining the extra requirements.
  4. Chuckels,I am also running a EVGA 9800 GT. Hope you haven't had any issues with it. Had to RMA the first one(gold missing from pins).Wiped out my rebate, which I did get in 5 weeks.

    Loaded Nvidia driver 178.24 had lockups useing 3dMark03.So then I tried driver 180.43,look over at my second monitor idle temp 68c. Fan was at a dead stop. Couldn't change it with Precison Tool either.

    Ended up loading 177.79 works alot better. Improved my 3dMark06 and 06 by about 11%. Haven't play any games with it yet though
  5. Once power connector actually makes more sense. It's the same hardware as g90 8800gts, which use single power connector, yet for some reason, Nvidia decided to put 2 power connectors on 9800gtx. It really doesn't use the kind of power that warrants 2. It's nice they changed it back.

  6. Hey Fester, i had the same fan problem with the 180.43 drivers, have you installed the latest precision tool version? Solved my problem
  7. Homeboy2, hey thanks for bring that to my attention. I'm still running the one the came with the Vid card version 1.3.0.0

    Gunna have to go to there sight and see if I find the latest greatest.
    Man I sure have a hellofa time trying find out any tech specs there.
    Was thinking about using the step-up program to get a 9800 GTX+.
    They're so tight with info on cards I've been hestating to pull the trigger.
  8. Holy cow. Are those reviewer kidding? he run it at 250W PSU

    If that's true, that will be a good news for me
  9. Looks like the PS he's talking about is only running the graphics card. Which may or may not be ok. Provided you have enough amps on your 12v line.
  10. hey fester how many 3dmark03's do u get? :P
  11. V3NOM,
    With driver 178.24 my scores for 03 were :23,760 seemed kinda low. Tried a couple of others, my set-up has liked 177.79 the best so far.
    With a score or 27,324 on my last run.
    That penciled out to a 13% gain with a more compatible driver on a synthetic test. Didn't see any frps gains in Crysis though.
    PS: my 9800GT still doesn't like 03 very well. Have to run it 2 or 3 times as it locks up. All other apps run fine(ie... 3dMark06, Vidio Card Stability, Auqua Mark, Nova Bench,ect...)
  12. yeah that is low. my 7600GS oc got 30k. LOL! 9600GT only got 35k, which wasnt as big an increase as i would have liked... but then again it wasnt 50% oc'd and it has a slower cpu so..
  13. Look like decent numbers for a little older plattform (no offence).
    Still better than my new Amd set-up. I considered going Intel, just don't know enough about it though. That and I had been hearing rumors about Phenom II coming out after the first of the year. Keeping my fingers crossed it will be at least close to I7's capabilities.
  14. I know this is reviving a dead post but the new versions are true as I just purchased one. I first thought it was a GTS 250 because of the new heatsink style and everything but just check it out here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbvuvagoF_k
  15. Thanks for that.
