its about time though, such little power shouldnt' be so expensive (9800GTX/GX2), the GTX 280 really puts it all in its place - and now we get what we SHOULD GET for what pay for, finally.
I have to explain this. GT200 will be a failed architecture until they shrink it to a smaller process. The 9800GX2 which is based on the 18 month old G80, is faster than this monolithic, power sucking, hot and rather uninnovative chip. A single GTX 280 consumes more than the dual chip GX2, whilst being slower!! And that's not the worst, because of the crappy yields high production cost, we consumers are paying for it. $650!! That's $200 more than the GX2 can be bought for, which I will repeat again, is faster than this card, consumes less power, and is based on an 18 month old architecture.
Nvidia cocked up this time.
