[FUD] 9800GX2 over $500

post #1 of 14

Nvidia has an interesting idea on how to price its upcoming Geforce 9800 GX2 at over €500. We are talking about the suggested etail price that includes European VAT of an average of 18 percent.

Sounds about right to be honest, around £370 inc VAT is what i expected. Which is just as well....cos that's exactly what i have saved for two of them.

Well i dont know how much that is in america here.. Lets see. If it was $500 then 1x8800GTS = 300 or so so 2 of those = $600

I dont know if I want one

It's either 2x 9800GX2's or 2x 9800GTX's for me. Although the flagship is always released first, so on this i'd expect the GX2 to be the fastest card Nvidia will bring to the table. The GTX will still be very fast. But it won't touch a GX2.

I'm just waiting like everyone else to see some benchies on them. If they suck, and offer very little over existing GPU's i'll go QX9650 and TRI SLI 8800GTX's instead.

I may wait until late March to see how 9800GT/GTX works. It seems 2x GT or 2x GTS (G92) is still a good option.

It's 500 EUROS not dollars

Huge difference - you should edit the title
It goes to eleven

I may just have some toast and watch the late show

500 Euro is 735 Dollars =(

I think I'm going to stepup to one of these two with me favoring the GTX currently. I think the only benefit to having the GX2 would be Quad-SLI should Nvidia get it right this time.
