    You can't really call the G92 old, it's only been around 4-5 months

    9600 has only 1 sli connector. It isn't tri-sli compatible.

    I repeat myself on another one of these threads ( DON'T BELIEVE A WORD OF IT )

    I (PREDICT) this is the 9800gtx from a friend that knows something within the company. Here actually is his prediction of the 9800gtx

    65nm g92 512bit bus 1024mb 160 shaders as far as the clock speeds is unknown.

    There is no 9800GTX yet... As many times before, wait until it's released before jumping to conclusions... Very simple...

    We definately shouldn't jump to conclusions but at the same time on the last few occasions these sites have been pretty accurate in their predictions.

    A lot damage has still be done wether those specs are real or not. Even card's spec hasn't been confirmed by nVidia... I mean I've already seen in few forums peoples going HD 3870x2 because of these specs...

    And there still hasn't been any reviews yet...

    how you've managed to get 256bit bandwidth from 1.5gb of ram is beyond me.

    Rich_Guy: last i checked, the ATI HD 3xxx series was for the most part just a die shrink of the HD 2xxx series. Don't see why NVidia couldn't make the 9 series DX10.1 compatible. think it mostly just has to be able to support specific features.

    And.... no.... the pics in the link on the first post are either majorly photoshopped, or not of the 9800GTX. I'll give you an example. Look at the two following pics, the first of the supposed "9800GTX", and the second of an 8800GTX, which as we all know, has both sets of goldfingers for the Tri-SLI bridge.

    Notice the difference? If that were the 9800GTX, you'd be able to SEE the goldfingers in the pic, and if you couldn't see the goldfingers, you'd at LEAST see quite a bit more gaps in that short bit of the card. all you see is a white gap, followed by a short part of green. Look at pictures of an 8800GTS... or even just about any SLI card that doesn't support Tri-SLI. they aren't just "hard to see because they're gold"..... only one set of goldfingers SHOULD be there. the other bit you see to the right is just a piece of the PCB.

    also it doesn't show the dvi ports:p
    but it could be just a demo card,
    the 9800gtx has to be better then those spec's

    it's just the angle. you can tell they're there. if you look near the bottom, you can kinda see a little nub sticking out, which would be the part that you'd screw the DVI cable's securing screws into.

    If i had to guess, i'd say they just used an old picture from when the 8800 GTX was leaked.

    Jeez people, you sound like a bunch of babies whining and crying. It's alright, you will be fine. LOL

    What do you expect, AMD put out such a crap product that Nvidia doesn't need to release anything ground breaking. Why spend the extra millions of dollars in research when your competitor can't even catch up to your 2 year old technology. If you don't like it, then don't buy it.

    When AMD tanks, what do you think Intel is going to do. Intel will probably release minute changes, speed boosts and will raise prices. Again, if you don't like it, then stop whining and crying about it and don't buy it. *Sigh*

    it wil be faster, nvidia will make it so in the drivers while overlooking the 8800's.

    Anyone besides me wonder if the 9800GTX is really the 9800GT?
