I think a lot of people are missing the point about the 9 series.....

saying something like "just skip the 9 series" is stupid....


it performs a tad better than the 8 series....

the 8 series performed very well.....


thus anyone who doesent have an 8800GT or better , its a very good option to upgrade to the 9 series!!!!

The 9xxx series isn't bad, it's just not quite the performance leap we were told it was going to be. The 9800gtx isn't a bad card, it's no 8800gtx but that's why the 8800gtx still costs around $400.

One thing that's interesting about the 9800GTX's is that, when run at identical clocks to an 8800GTS512, they perform, on average 2.11% SLOWER ... at least, over a fairly comprehensive set of in-game benchmarks ...

The problem is with the pricing.

The 9600GT is the same price as the 8800GT in some cases while the HD3870 has known to be cheaper. In this case there is no performance gain when going to the 9 series.

The 9800GTX similarly, gets matched by the 8800GTS 512MB which is cheaper and barely beats the 8800GTX 768MB. This probably should have been released as a 9800GT at most.

In this case, the 9 series so far wasn't worth the money they spent releasing it.

You want your answer? Just take a look at the Official Crysis Benchmark Thread on OCN, and you'll see that the 9800GTX and most 8800GTS 512's are right up there with the 8800GTX, and even surpassing Ultras..
