NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ Launches in July

NVIDIA will launch a brand new part named the GeForce 9800 GTX+. With the core shrunk down to 55nm, the engineers over in Santa Clara were able to increase the clock speeds. Shipping this July for $229, NVIDIA hopes to have the necessary GPU ammo to combat AMD's Radeon HD 4850 and 4870 video cards.

Update:

I've have added a picture of the 9800 GTX+ chip in the nude for everyones viewing pleasure.

NVIDIA simply never lets up there pressure on AMD. It is more than obvious that NVIDIA wants to competely own every segment of the GPU market.

Well of course....

Why wouldn't they? If your a company, you want to grow as fast and as much as you can. The more they take over, the more money they earn. The more money they earn, the more money they have to spend on research that will advance the computer industry at a faster pace.

I'm all for Nvidia being the leader in all things computer. They strive to create better technology to help the world. Thing's like their upcoming mobile Tegra chip, and their CUDA programing language. Are 2 things that Nvidia has created that are very important pieces of technology. (Take a look at all the Tegra specs if you havn't already lol.)

Awesome, I want to step it up from my 9600gt and don't want to blow half a grand on the 280. This will be perfect for my rig.

They're going to get pwned, when Intel releases Nehalem as the boards won't support SLI. They might as well steal as many scraps as they can get.

TiKiMaN13827d ago

Maybe...maybe not. This Fall I would not be surprised if Intel and NVIDIA are able to stop the fighting for just a second and work something out. It would be very unfortunate not to have any Nehalem SLI motherboards. I just don't know if they will be able to come to some agreement though. They both have a tendency to be very stubborn on issues like that.

As far as the 9800 GTX+ is concerned, the chip seems to be priced just perfectly to benefit both NVIDIA and consumers.

SLI isn't a necessity.

Using a single powerful card is always more stable, and price/performance than using 2 or 3 lower powered cards.

And you definitely don't need to have SLI of the top line card.

And if you do, then just don't get a Nehalem. The current CPU's we have right now are more then enough for games. It's the GPU that's doing most of the work these days :). A good dual-core will do you fine for a long time.

Plus, Nvidia has joined up with VIA.. Which is a CPU company.. lol.

And Intel isn't the only CPU manufacturer. A person could go with AMD then instead.

Bolts3827d ago

I agree. SLI is overrated, with the way technology is marching you're better off with the best single card money can buy.

fermcr3827d ago

No SLI or CROSSFIRE is needed (overrated).... just get a good single card. When you think it's time to get more speed... sell it and upgrade to a new single card.
