[LR] Overclocking The GeForce 9800 GTX+

The NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ graphics card was and still is a hot subject around the internet since it was announced by NVIDIA this past Thursday. The card will not be available to purchase until next month, so enthusiasts and gamers will have to wait for it to arrive if they want one. Many are asking if it is worth the wait as the ATI Radeon HD 4850 is available to purchase today for a reasonable $169.99 plus shipping over at Newegg thanks to a $30 mail-in-rebate. The MSRP on the GeForce 9800 GTX+ is $229, so is the GeForce 9800 GTX+ carries a 35% price premium on top the fact you have to wait to buy one. Our own performance testing showed that the GeForce 9800 GTX+ had a 10.4% performance advantage over the Radeon HD 4850 as you can below.

Why was there a decrease in Vantage? I thought Vantage was all pro-Nvidia crap.

Another stupid comparison. Great idea! Lets compare a OVERCLOCKED card to the competitors NON-OVERCLOCKED card and see who performs better, yeah! What will idiots come up with next?

Stupid. Why use CAT 8.5 for the Radeon 3870x2 and CAT 8.6 for the 4850. And they didn't use the hotfix AMD released yesterday.
