Nvidia GeForce 9 graphics card family keeps getting new members. Today we are going t talk about Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX from Gainward – a graphics accelerator that tends to be the fastest single-chip solution today, but which is not that very much different from a well-known GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB. Is it worth the $349 they ask for it? Let’s find out!
Performance in Synthetic Benchmarks
The new card scores even less points overall than the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB, probably due to the different version of the driver. On the other hand, 3DMark05 is not an adequate benchmark anymore. It cannot show the real potential of modern graphics cards with unified architecture and advanced computing abilities.
There is no difference between the G92-based cards in the first test. In the second, the cards only differ at low resolutions. It’s only in the third test, which is the most sophisticated one, that we see a stable performance gain of 5-6%.
