Nvidia GeForce 9800 GX2 caught on camera

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2008/03...ht_on_camera/1

CeBIT 2008: We catch the almost elusive 9800 GX2 on the CeBIT show floor. Also, what's launching a week later on March 25th?

Hmm, interesting find on the chip used. Everyone on XS is convinced its a dual 8800GT. Looks far better and well designed than the 790GX2.

Mind you, theres a new rev. of the 3870 X2 coming soon with GDDR4, so it should be a fun match up!

still no DX10.1 or OpenGL 2.1 support unlike the ATI's cards though. I know both of those are not really used yet, but still would be nice to see

Looks a little like one of those uber-powerful, uber-power-hungry, uber-noisy, uber-hot, uber-expensive super cards that in action are God's gift to mankind, but practice 99.9% of the market are priced out.

It looks mahoosive. How much power does that thing consume? Time to start building my own power station, I think

I rather see a new singleslot, sleek looking, dx10.x, 45nm, 150w max, display port card with at least 2 time the power of a 8800GTX. But that will probably stays a dream for over 6 months or so...

Im slightly curious why NVidia haven't made any GDDR4 stuff yet. Also as someone said, the sign says DX10, so might that mean this card isn't DX10.1 compatible?

or they kept the sign generic on purpose so they can recycle it for the 3224324 variations they will release... kinda like inno3d did with the 8800 series retail box, it doesnt even have the product spec on the retail box, they just printed 8800 Series on it and then add a sticker with what flavour of the 88800 series it is.

I messed up and was told wrongly - it's two G92s. G98 is mid-low range coming later and future products are different too (triple figure Gs etcetc).

Hmm, well, now I know what will replace the two 7950GX2s I don't yet have in 5 years time or so!

I love obscure hardware and this will never become mainstream.

Dont worry, I was talking with someone at nVidia yesterday, and the G100 is the chip we have all been hoping the 9xxx series would be.
