Just in case,
I'll keep my camera ready :invasion:
or not lol
Going from the size and the fact theres only 2 of them going take a shot in the dark and says it's GF9800X2 quad SLI.
Hey hey! I noticed my mistake and amended it! No boxer eating for me!
it's the GTX, woot!
Guys, both articles will go live at 3 PM CET.
umm i cant do the maths on that.
its 3.30pm here now so umm does that mean another 12 hours?!
But we've already had the Quad SLI review...
It's got to be the 9800GTX SLI.
5 hours and 9 minutes.
Two hours mate.
Two hours, so thats 2/3pm GMT aswell then.. Cool.
One hour and counting! I'll get it after I get home from class.

Ha ha!! I was already reading it Hilbert - cheers!!!!
Got them loaded up, now I need to go to class, they'll be waiting for me though.
Seeet, thanks Mr H!
the single GTX review has one of the test results wrong.. you have the 8800GTS and GTX results switched around:
Overall very nice reviews single and SLI.
I have one question though... as we saw with the 8800GTX and I feel I got screwed..but do yall think BFG or others will release OCed versions of these cards?? Also if the OC versions are released within 100days of your purchase of the original are you able to upgrade it with that new warranty they did?
I'd hate to build my new system in a few weeks with one of these new cards and then a month later they release a damn OCed version.
Nope that's actually correct, remember sometimes the benefit of more efficient architecture kicks in here and there. In this case G92 has a slightly better effect in WIC than G80.
As to you other question, I'm pretty sure an OC version will surface, and yeah .. that's what the step-up program is about.
really?? Did the original tests in the past with those two cards show the same results cause thats rather odd but I guess understandable.
Any ideas on the time frame of that OC version? I can't remember how long it was from the 8800GTX release to the OCed versions popping up.
Just a friendly suggestion: Is it possible to keep the Graphic cards in the same order during all the tests and with the same colorcode? A bit confusing when you glanse thru the charts and some cards suddenly swap places.. I admit I have a lazy laydback surfing position, and are more at risk when you do this swap... Feel free to ignore me
Good review, though not quite what I expected from a "new" GTX, apart from TRI-SLI and Hybrid-SLI, this is just a slightly overclocked 8800GTS512....
