PCB Design and Functionality

Following the unpleasant tradition of GeForce 8800 GTX/Ultra, the card is as long as 270mm (40mm longer than GeForce 8800 GT/GTS) and will not fit into some system cases. A picture with the girl from the cover can be seen on the face side of the card’s plastic casing.

The Chaintech GeForce 9800 GTX is equipped with a PCI Express x16 interface, two dual-link DVI ports, and an S-Video output:

There is nothing particularly exciting about the reverse side of the PCB:

On the top side of the PCB, near the video ports, there are two onboard MIO connectors for uniting three such cards into a 3-way SLI subsystem.

It will be costly, yet quite fast.

The GeForce 9800 GTX is 32mm thick and blocks the neighboring slot on the mainboard:

There are two additional power connectors on the right:

These are 6-pin connectors, so you won’t have to look for adapters into 8-pin connectors or for a PSU with such plugs. According to the specs, the peak power consumption of the GeForce 9800 GTX is 156W. A 450W power supply with a current of 24A and higher on the +12V rail is recommended for it.
