NVIDIA GeForce 9800 Will be on Display at CeBIT 2008

The launch date of the elusive GeForce 9800 series, which will once again steal the thunder from AMD, remains up in smoke. However, NVIDIA did confirm one fact: they will be showing off their new hardware over at CeBIT this upcoming March. At this point, only Albatron is confirming their booth at CeBIT, but you should expect several more booths to pop up confirming their 9800-laden spot at CeBIT.Source: Nordic Hardware

I'd guess April if they'll be showing it off in March. Its bad marketing on nVidia's part in my opinion. There are a lot of potential buyers out there, myself included, who are going to buy 3870 X2's simply because we don't like to wait, especially when we don't know ANYTHING about the competition. I have a feeling I'd prefer the 9800, but I can't wait for a product I don't know anything about or when it will even be out.

i put my faith in Nvidia and i KNOW the 9800GTX will be KICK ASS. i've got my $$$ already saved to get 2 or even 3 of these bad boys. NOT wasting money on the GX2 though.

good things are worth waiting for. Nvidia doesn't want to let the word out because the KNOW they've got a kick ass product on the way out the door.

nVidia putting out some numbers isn't going to magically make ATI's cards any better, and it won't change anything on ATI's side. All it can do is cast doubt into people's minds who are considering buying an ATI product that is available now versus waiting to guess and see if nVidia has the better product.

Wait, is this the 9800GTX?
Thats a good question actually, I assumed it was the 9800 GX2 since thats what was supposed to come out soon. I haven't been anticipating the 9800 GTX or anything.

Expect some officially-looking green slide-shows that show how much the 9800 rocks in Crysis! :p

That will be shortly followed by a red ATi slide-show proving that ATI kicks a** in HL2 or something...

I'm trying to be sarcastic, but I might be right also :confused:

The 9800gtx is going to rock! But, it will be a heat-machine for sure.

According to the rumors I heard myself (I mean read ha!) 9800GTX has 32 ROP and 96 TMU.
Anyway more than 32 ROP = Pointless
64 ROP = Very expensive for no trade offs. A card with such high ROP number would be able to do 4048x3072 32XAA which is pointless. At existing resolutions TMU or even SPs would become the limiting factor.
