NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX Early Test

TweakTown is one of the first to publish a review of the upcoming GeForce 9800 GTX, this card is expected on April 1st for about $299.
Initial pricing on the 9800 GTX looks promising; down under we should see it pop up for under $500 AUD which puts it into a bracket that doesn’t really exist at the moment.

For roughly 15% more (sometimes less) in the money department you can get yourself an HD 3870 X2 and this really is going to be the GTX’s toughest competition. While the X2 may be a dual GPU card it doesn’t carry the excessive price tag that we see on NVIDIA’s dual GPU card, the GeForce 9800 GX2. We all know these dual cards don’t always provide great performance in all games due to untweaked driver support, so our tests today should be rather interesting indeed.
Check out the benchmarks over here. The card seems to be pretty fast, it's not a revolution but in most tests it's faster than the Radeon HD 3870 X2 and in some benchmarks it even beats the GeForce 9800 GX2.
