Default nvidia's 9800

when do you guys think nvidia will bring out the 9800?

if so do you think it will drive down the price of the 8800 thus adding to me holding off for it for awhile

1. GeForce 9800 GX2 : 2 x 65nm G92, 256 shader processors, 2 x 256-bit memory interface, 1GB memories, Feb-Mar

2. GeForce 9800 GTX : Replace 8800GTX, Feb-Mar

3. GeForce 9800 GT : Replace 8800 GT, Mar-Apr

4. GeForce 9600 GT : Launch on Feb 14th, 64 shader processors, 256-bit memory interface, 512MB memories, 8600GTS< 9600GT<8800GT, US$169
EDIT: Price going down? Doubt it, the only way the price will go down is if they finder a cheaper way to produce them. Which they have, somewhat, Nvidia has said for the manufactures to reduce the PCB layers on the 8800's to reduce costs, although this will affect performance.

ATI will have the first Dual Core GPU, probably. The closest Nvidia is to dual core GPU is having two PCB's.

"The best way to think of the GeForce 9800 GX2 card is as an 8800 GPU that has been die shrunk to 65nm and placed in an SLI configuration in a "single" card." That thing sounds like a BEAST IMO. 2 8800's in a single card. imagine if u took two of these and SLI's then it would be a quad SLI 8800. HOLY SMOKES. i cant wait

The 9800GX2, is said to be only 30% faster than the 8800 ultra.

hey but that 30% is most likely to be good enough to play crysis all maxed
