I don't think so.

9900 and 9900GX2=GT200

Well we don't know if its a new core or just an updated version of G92

this is exactly why i still think the 8800gt is the best deal ever. 9/10 of the performance of an 9800gtx, and 2/3 the price. if that.

The 8800GTS has tighter memory timings, of course it will perform *slightly* better than the 9800GTX at identical speeds.

Lets do max OC for both cards stock and then see which is the winner. This test reeks of lame.


Remember when everyone said the 8800Ultra was a ripoff? Then they realized that with the revised core they typically OC'ed MUCH better than an 8800GTX, and all of a sudden everyone was buying them.

Same story here folks.

idk I'm doubting that in this instance tbh. Until we start to see 9800GTX overclocks, higher than the GTS's can achieve. I can't see it tbh.

Then why does it cost $90 more? Because of the 3-way SLI support? Give me a break...

What are you talking about? I'm seeing stock 9800GTX's all over the place hitting 825-850 core, where as the average 8800GTS seems to hit somewhere around 775-800 stable.

Why did the Ultra cost $300 more than the GTX?

Yet to see any such reports, got any links? What about mem and shader?

edit:
I've browsed around google, a few reports of the cores being 820+. Looks mostly to me the same deal as the GTS, due to the fact theres more people running stable under 820. From what I gather thus far anyways.

Links?

Do a google search for "9800GTX overclocking". It's all over the internet.

On stock cooling, average max core OC, 850mhz. Average Shader, 2100. Average mem, 2400-2500. Seriously, do a search. I haven't found a single review site yet that posted max core OC of less than 825, and some as high as 860 or more.

I guarantee that we are going to start seeing core clocks approaching 900 on these cards once people start putting them on aftermarket cooling.
