I think you should have mentioned that the 4850 is in the stores now while the GTX+ wont be out until sometime in July.

I do however agree that the 9800 GTX+ has thermals and power, but you must also remember by the time its actually able to be be bought it costs $30 more and AIB partners may be have their own custom (2 slot) coolers availble to purchase for the 4850. Also AMD's Powerplay isnt working in the current drivers (apparently) and should be considered its power (and possibly thermals) will drop by the time the GTX+ comes out.

Either way, price war shall continue and drop prices I say!

A very nice performer and a good choice, if you plan on going mid-range , imo.

p.s.: When are we getting updated VGA charts?

Have been working on them already, yet once all card test (read 4870) have been finalized I'll update the entire shebang.

The first 4870 is finally in though and Monday/Tuesday I expect another 3 or 4.

Thanks a lot for the heads-up!
I can't wait for the 4870 and the updated charts.

Great review like always

Saw a little spelling problem (i think...) on last page (The Verdict) line 2, (4859/9800GTX+) Isn't it suppost to be 4850?

It may confuse people if so...

Thanks for the review.

Insane overclock, still not good enough for me to differ from the 4870

NVIDIA really got to work on their naming convention, they can't go forth and back from generation and use different schemes every generation!

Is it just my eyes or is the BFG 9800GTX OCX card clocked higher all around being a more powerful card than this new reference 9800GTX? Yeah I believe it is.

the OCX card has a 755 core, 1890mHz shader, and 2300memory.

Your better off going with the OCX card than this reference...unless of course BFG bumps up the OCX to a OCX+

i might use the 9800 gtx black edition for my summer build or the gtx 260, but if this were priced around $200 it would so beat the 4850 hd

my problem is with the 300-500 price range there's really nothing that NVIDIA offer that really fits

Either too high to SLI or too weak for single card

Performance shelled by the GX2 isn't sufficient for me, hence why I'll go for 4870 Xfire

I'm not positive but i think that Hilbert has to send most of the stuff he reviews back to the manufacturer. Not sure though. Could we possibly get an "official" answer to this ?

You can get the 4850 with some secret instant rebates and MIR from newegg for 150. You can't beat that - heck, you could install a 3rd party cooler for the reduced cost and overclock the bejeezus out of it.

And the cowie, there will be a second shipment of 4870 in Mid July, AMD always said on the 25th the supply of the 4870 would be slightly dimished due to GDDR5, but after mid July there shouldnt be any problems finding one.

I would assume so, but in the review he said he went out and 'bought' the cards. Most reviewers if they manufacture wont send them one, they will sometimes go buy it to do a review.
