We got a new date for the several times delayed Geforce 9800GX2 ,and now we hear that March 11th should be the day. We are not sure if this is the final date, but everyone we know is telling us that the launch will take a place after Cebit.
This will also be a quiet launch, as Nvidia didn’t plan any press event, but we are sure that they are saving the budget for the GT200 presentation later this year. That is the real deal.
The 9800GX2 is slowly going into production and, as usual, partners will get the cards made by Flextronics and put nice stickers on them. We don’t see much space for innovation or some funky fan designs, as getting innovative on this sandwich design will be tough.
As we've said before, 9800GX2 is made of two G92 chips, needs two power plugs, works at 600MHz reference speed and should end up faster and more expensive than ATI's 3870 X2.
