9800GTX+ vs 9800GX2 Help

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
hey guys i want to know whether there is a huge difference between a 9800gx2 compared to a 9800gtx+ a regular 9800gtx+ comes with 512mb of memory, Gigabyte released a 1GB edition of the gtx+ so here are the specs of each card and you tell me

GF 9800GTX+ regular (512MB)
GPU Engine Specs:
Processor Cores128
Graphics Clock (MHz)738 MHz
Processor Clock (MHz)1836 MHz
Texture Fill Rate (billion/sec)47.2

Memory Specs:
Memory Clock (MHz)1100 MHz
Standard Memory Config512 MB
Memory Interface Width256-bit
Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec)70.4


GF 9800GX2
GPU Engine Specs:
Processor Cores256 (128 per GPU)
Graphics Clock (MHz)600 MHz
Processor Clock (MHz)1500 MHz
Texture Fill Rate (billion/sec)76.8

Memory Specs:
Memory Clock (MHz)1000 MHz
Standard Memory Config1 GB
Memory Interface Width512-bit
Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec)128 (64 per GPU)


we can see that the 9800gtx+ has more graphics clock and memory clock also more processor clock so whats the difference

Yes there's a huge difference. I've had both so I can say on behalf of the GX2 that it'll kill the gtx

gx2 is far superior. are you going for that? i'd almost recommend getting a newer nvidia/ati card if you're considering spending that much on the gx2

A GX2 is basically two (old) GTX's sandwitched togeather.

I wouldn't get either though, a 4850 is better than the GTX, and better than the GX2 75% of the time. Plus, it doesn't microsutter like the GX2 does.

What. The 4850 doesn't come close to the 9800gx2. Do you have proof that it does?

The GX2 is a lot better.

But you shouldnt buy both of those. Get the HD4850 instead of the 9800GTX+ and get a GTX260 if you have the extra money.
