    8800gt --> 9800gt

    Well, didn't know where to throw this so here it is. If it's old news then nevermind.

    Oops! they did it again! Nvidia Die-Shrinks 8800GT to become 9800GT....

    http://www.techpowerup.com/65156/GeF...ents_yet..html



    Back when, when we were discussing the re-branding of the 8800GS to 9600GSO I joked "I wonder how long until the 8800GT becomes a 9800GT". Looks like I was right.

    If this happens, it should take some time. 8800GT will be alive as long as the G92 is in production, as it is the only card that NVIDIA can make use of G92 chips with 1 defective shader unit

    It's not a die-shrink though. It is simply a changed name.

    I beg to differ. Did you read the link I posted ....

    8800GT = 65nm
    9800GT = 55nm

    http://www.techpowerup.com/65156/GeF...ents_yet..html

    The 9800 GT differs from 8800 GT in having a 55nm fabbed core that should allow higher parameters, though ironically being identical to its predecessor, the 8800 GT (600/1500/1800 MHz).

    It's more than 'a bit confusing' again, since it seems there are also going to be 65nm 9800GTs out there, simply rebranded G92s.

    It would definitely have to be a shrink to use the cooler thats shown in the picture, 65nm would be toast with that little fella.

    Nice card if your upgrading to new card thats slower than the 8800GT and since this was longest I went without a upgrade the 9800GT 1GB will do nice matching up with right cpu-ram-combo.I been running gaming since I got the new PC and no matter what FPS I try its fast smooth and things look sweet.Ill be runinning Pc benchmarks one is 3D mark 06 +patch 3D mark 06 + patch.

    According to our source, GeForce 9800GT is just around the corner. Because there are still lots of 8800GT inventory out there, NVIDIA have decided that they will allow partners to flash BIOS, change 8800GT device ID to 9800GT device ID directly.

    What’s more, if partner wants, NVIDIA can laser remark those inventory G92 chip.

    9800GT will support HybridPower, but because of inventory cards lack of control chips so they will not support the power saving feature.

    This time NV provides not only reference card but also production permission to all partners at the right beginning of the launch. That means all companies can make non-reference card to reduce cost.

    The card will be officially announced in this quarter.

    Re: 8800gt --> 9800gt

    Its not nvidias fault a person dont do research on the product they were looking into getting.

    I went with the 1GB 9800GT because of how well the 8800GT was rated and wanted a setup that with right CPU amount of ram and right videocard + 64bit OS that can hang in Games, Encodes DL no compression,multi tasking while encoding.

    I ran alot of my latest FPS with the card in old setup which is an Alienware DC amd 4800+ 2.4@2.7 4GB DDR PC 4000 +7800GTX KO EVGA its like nite and day from 7 series 7800GTX KO DX 9 256MB to 9800GT 1GB and 512 to 1GB not much difference but 256 to 1GB yes and DX10 and higher clocks do and GPU-z is showing higher texture fill rate at stock no oc of setup as of yet.

    3dmark coming few mins

    Maybe it's not their fault, but it is bad business. ATI has a much clearer naming scheme now, which only makes nVidia's look even worse.
