Default GeForce 9 roadmap revealed, 9800 GX2 due March 11th?



The new budget-friendly 9600 GT (pictured) already has plenty of folks excited, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. NVIDIA's new GeForce 9-series has a top-end 9800 GX2 card slated for March 11th -- if these rumors are to be believed -- that is supposed to best the 8800 Ultra's performance by a solid 30 percent. The card is supposed to land for less than $599, but if that's a bit much for you, the 9800 GTX should hit for under $399 in "late March," with the 9800 GT following on April 3rd for under $299. If all of this is too much horsepower for you, the 9600 GS, 9500 GT and 9500 GS are slated to arrive in May, June and July, respectively, and all should hit at under the 9600 GT's already friendly sub-$200 pricepoint. AMD's latest offerings are pretty dang cheap as well, and aren't slouching in the benchmarks, so it's certainly a good time to be a PC gamer.

Damn! I thought the GX2 would be $450ish The GTX sounds promising though @ $399.

8800 gt is good enough
for about another year or 2 before you need to upgrade
who cares if you cant max the game
as long as your can get high settings with decent fps

The whole point of buying an expensive graphics card is to max the game...you wouldn't have bought an 8800GT if it didn't max 99% of games out there.

I knew the $450 was too good to be true...I'm just hoping the 9800GTX will be down to about $300 by summer. That would be an awesome deal.

Ok...I may sound like a newb here but whats the difference between GX2, GT, and GTX? I figured the order from worst to best is GT, GTX, GX2. But I have no idea what they mean....
