I just hope the 9800GTX+ (with the 55 nm chip) will stop nvidia from getting totally chrushed this season. If the final benchmarks are as good as the preliminary ones, I will pick up two for sli.
Spoken like a true Nvidia fanboy with no knowledge of DX10.1. Nevermind that they dragged their feet to persuade Microsoft not to enable it, and bullied at least one developer into dropping support for it, because if Nvidia didn't implement it then it must not be good! To hell with the obvious performance advantages and improved standards that would help ensure gaming goes in a single, uniform direction for developers!
