We’ve all heard about the GX2, so there isn’t much to say here; there’s no package so we’ll get stuck straight into the card and talk about its specifications before we get into the benchmarking.
The main thing to compare here today is the performance of the 9800GX2 against the HD 3870 X2 from AMD. We’ve also thrown in the 8800GT, as the specifications on a single core of a 9800GX2 is only slightly above that of an 8800GT, this should mean that if a game doesn’t take advantage of SLI then the performance should only be just above the single 8800GT.
Check it out at TweakTown. The reviewer says the card was a let down in Windows Vista but performed pretty well in Windows XP, I expect this problem will probably be resolved by new drivers.
