I'm sure game developers would be able to come out with something that could test the card pretty good. Wouldn't it be crazy having a single card that would kill dual 8800 ultras!!!

Haha, I thought it was a bit strange them saying 'Whats the point making it so powerful?'

The reason that came to my head straight away was, games will run on it for longer.

I doubt the new card will be 3x more powerful though. Seems too much of a jump to me, but who knows?

Guess it doesn't hurt the guy running on a budget, that'll be able to pick up the 8800GTX for A LOT cheaper when that arrives

Crysis and other Unreal3 powered games might give the 8800GTX a run for it's money in some situations, but even then a 9800GTX would shred.

Kage's got a point, cheapy cheap cheap!

Yep, whatever drives hardware prices down, for people that don't want the best of the best, is good enough for me.
Thats the good thing about technology these days.

Thing that bugs me about all the new video cards is that games run on them perfect for maybe a year or 2 then if you want the game too look beutiful and run great you need to upgrade again for another $600 Maybe we should just stick to game consoles and invest $600 or less every 4-5 years
