Take a look at the table on the second page of HEXUS’ preview of the 9800 GT; compare the new 9800 GT specs to the old 8800 GT specs. Can you spot the difference; I’ll give you a hint, it involves a feature only found on nForce motherboards, and is a feature that neither Ryan, Josh or I could find a single good point about when we tried during a previous Podcast. You get no die shrink, no clock speed increases, you don’t even get the opportunity to try 3-way SLI, this looks to have been a 8800 GT given a BIOS flash and a new sticker, now being sold as a new card. Even better, Zotac has included hybrid power on recent 8800 GTs.
