9800 GX2 listed in Europe
Asus and Zotac, starting at €529
E-tailer Alternate has once again jumped the gun and listed two 9800 GX2 cards on its sites.
The first one comes from Asus, branded ASUS EN9800GX2/G/2DI (90-C3CG91-L0UAY00Z) and it's priced at €529, here. It's stock clocked, its G92 GPUs run at 600MHz, 1GB of GDDR3 memory runs at 1000MHz and the Shaders are clocked at 1500MHz. It ships with Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, and guess what, it's still not in stock.
Not surprisingly, Zotac also went with stock clocks for the core and memory, but chose to overclock the Shaders to 1625MHz. Zotac's card is designated Zotac 9800GX2 (ZT-98TEY2P-FSP) and it's listed and already available for €539, here.
As if this card wasn't expensive enough, you can also get yourself Innovatek's Cool-Matic 9800 X2 double sided waterblock for a painful €197, here, the same one EVGA will use on its watercooled 9800GX we reported about here.
Expect a flood of official announcements and listings tomorrow.
