NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ 55nm in mid-July

Posted on Thursday, June 19 2008 @ 13:04:35 CEST by

NVIDIA decides to put some more pressure on ATI by preparing a new mid-range graphics card, the GeForce 9800 GTX+. The name is a bit unusual but this card is NVIDIA's first 55nm part and it will be launched in mid-July, one week later than the Radeon HD 4870, for $229.

PC Perspective got the specifications of the GeForce 9800 GTX+:
  • Core clock: 738MHz
  • Shader clock: 1836MHz
  • 512MB GDDR3 memory @ 2200 MHz
  • 2- and 3-way SLI support
  • Compared to the current 65nm GeForce 9800 GTX this card has a 63MHz higher core, 148MHz higher clocked shaders but same memory clock. Furthermore, the price of the 65nm GeForce 9800 GTX will drop to $199 and there's also a rumour that NVIDIA is working on a performance driver to squeeze "significantly more" performance out of this 55nm G92 GPU.

    Looks like it's going to become an interesting summer, we have a feeling this card may give the $199 Radeon HD 4850 and $299 4870 a kick in the ass but if the performance is too good it could cannibalize the sales of the GeForce GTX 260. The GeForce 9800 GTX+'s pricing will hit the sweet spot, the price/performance could be pretty good and I'm sure NVIDIA will point out the other advantages this card has like PhysX support and support for CUDA-accelerated applications like fast video transcoding.

    Brilliant marketing move from NVIDIA! ATI first slapped NVIDIA in the face with the Radeon HD 4850 but NVIDIA will be the one who laughs last!
