the 9800 cards are a slap in the face to the consumers. The best the G92 core provides can be seen in the GTS G92 card. All 128sp turned on and a reasonable clock speed.

The 9800GTX is exactly the same card as a G92 8800GTS. And a 9800GX2 is just 2 G92 cores slapped together to make one card...

9800 = worthless....
good enough

So would you say that Nvidia is trying to opress the 3800 series (3870x2 more than anything to be honest) by using a marketing scheme instead of releasing anything that's REALLY new? I mean imagine the laughing stock Intel would be if they announced that pentium 5 (nehalem=P5?) was fundamentally just a p4 chip in a different package.

They only got upto 8800..............theres at least 200 other numbers available to them before 9000 (which should be GF9 series), but they think, "mehhh lets just add 1000, to 8800. Even if we arent bringing that much more to the table.....at least it will sound good"?

I think Nvidia have come to realise that when the general consumer doesn't actually know what the random model numbers mean, it becomes easier to sell their products.

Me too. Seriously, I was expecting some awesome stuff out of the 9000 series. I'll admit, the 9600GT is a decent card. A lot of people are parading it around, but it only looks that way to me when I compare it to the 8600GT, which was a complete turd. I suppose the fanfare I had in my mind regarding the 9000 series relates to my experience with the Radeon 9000 series, and I'm pretty certain a lot of you remember those. I guess the numbers lose their magic after the first time.
