GeForce 9800 GX2 Unveiled

NVIDIA's yet-to-be released GeForce 9800 GX2 in the "flesh." .HardOCP has the first exclusive pictures of the upcoming GeForce 9800 GX2 and some specs of it.

The best way to think of the GeForce 9800 GX2 card is as an 8800 GPU that has been die shrunk to 65nm and placed in an SLI configuration in a "single" card. The 9800 GX2 is very reminiscent of 7950 GX2 of days past.

The GeForce 9800 GX2 will launch in late February or early March as it now stands and will replace the 8800 Ultra (single GPU) card in NVIDIA's high-end product line up. The 9800 GX2 is said to be at least 30% faster than a 8800 Ultra. While it is not clear from the pictures below,it is speculated to support the "Quad SLI."

According to HardOCP the 9800 GX2 is using a pair of 65nm G92 GPU's, the same that you can find in the new 8800 GT/GTX. The card has 1GB of memory and a total of 256 Stream processors which indicates that this is a dual G92 based 8800 GTX.
