9800 GX2: Refresh in Q2 2008?
Fudzilla is buzzing with rumors about a remake of Nvidia's 9800 GX2.
Nvidia is said to plan replacing the current Gefroce 8800 cards with more or less identical 55 nanometer models. Those could run by the name Geforce 9800 or 9900. Something like that might happen to the current Geforce 9800 GX2, too. It is within the realms of possibility to either replace the card with a 55 nanometer version or keeping them both on the market at different prices.
Given the multitude of different versions of the Geforce 8800 and 9800 piling up in the upper market sectors, it might sound interesting for Nvida to clear its portfolio. This would also help customers to sort out the confusing disorder that currently infests the graphics card market.
