The third piece of the GeForce 9 series puzzle finally launched today with some reviewsto boot. The GeForce 9800 GTX is essentially faster than the GeForce 8800 GTS 512 MB and the GeForce 8800 GTX, but it’s not as fast as the GeForce 8800 Ultra. The most noticeable addition is the ability to put this baby into a triple SLI configuration.
I called the GeForce 9 series “severely disappointing“, but that may be a bit harsh. The GeForce 9600 GT isn’t bad. It’s actually quite comparable to the GeForce 8800 GT 512 MB if you like your games with high image quality settings. If you can find it for sub-$180: it’s a great deal. As for me, there isn’t much on the PC to tempt me to buy a new video card yet.
