Nvidia today released the latest in their video card lineup, the 9800 GX2. Featuring two processor cores, it marks a return to the twin-PCU structure last seen with the rather poorly implemented 7950 GX2.
Featuring a 600Mhz core clock and a 1000Mhz memory clock, along with 512MB of GDDR3 per core, the 9800 GX2 is really a pair of 8800 GTS 512MB cards strapped together, with the addition of Quad SLI support. Indeed some are questioning the need to change the series number at all, considering the G92 chip has been sold under the guise of the 8800 brand since late last year.
No word on NZ shipments or suggested prices at this stage. The full specifications are below;
256 (128 per GPU)
1GB GDDR3 (512MB per GPU)
8-pin + 6-pin
Patent Pending Integrated Cooling Solution
