G80 VS G92: Med to high end GeForce GFX cards round-up!

One years ago, the most powerful NVIDIA GFX card you can buy is 8800GTX, 8800 GTS 640MB and 8800GTS 320MB. And six month ago, 8800Ultra stands in the top of the hill, but the price is so scary to those people without a deep pocket.

And today, 8800 Ultra have been End of Life cycle, and 8800 GTX/GTS is too old to buy. That’s because some new products available in the market, eg. G9x cards. Anyway, as a first gen of G80 architecture product, GeForce 8800 did a good job in late 2006 to 2007 and now they are fading away. but it is still interesting to round them up with today’s G9x product. Do you still think 8800 Ultra/GTX/GTS can stand in the front of the line?

    If i were to build a monster pc right now i’d much rather get three 9800 GTXs against two GX2s, and for about the same price.

    Ajai, because it’s a G80 vs G92 article, and the ATI cards really suck wind when you enable AA/AF. Even the 3870X2 can’t stand up to G92 GTS. The HD3XXX series just cannot compete.

    the only reason why the g80 gts 320mb did so bad was that it was not overclocked at all.
    What a shame.

    Please remember that three 9800 gtx’s only produces about 1.5 teraflops of possible performance where two 9800 gx2′s produce 2 teraflops of performance. So u cant really even compare the two.

    Plus the possibility to add another 9800 gx2 for a total of 3Gb of frame buffer and 3 teraflops of performance.

    Thats not even comparing the number of stream processors available.

    The teraflops talk is directly correlated with the number of stream processors. Where each card has 128 stream processors, the gx2′s having 256 stream processor per card, 3*256 = 768 stream processors, where the 9800 gtx (three of them) would only be 384.

    Obviously there is the added cost:-)

    You obviously know absolutely nothing about this. Stop lying and making shit up and google the facts quickly. You are spreading incorrect information and probably confusing people like yourself who actually did take the time to google before posting.
