The latest leaked specs for the 9800 are underwhelming to say the least if they are correct.

Is it just the 9800gx2 coming out soon? Or are there other 9800s coming out soon as well?

I know the first one is supposed to come out March 11th.

In what way are the latest specs underwhelming?? I haven't really seen them and I don't really know enough about them to judge myself.

Damn, how about tri-SLI with three 9800X2's?
And I thought upgrading my PC to 8GB RAM for $180 was dang crazy...you're even crazier....does that word exist?
