    Here comes yet another GeForce 9800 GTX+ graphics card based on the manufacturer specifications, rather than NVIDIA's. Inno3D is ready with its GeForce 9800 GTX+ Freezer DHT edition. For starters, the card ships with reference NVIDIA frequencies of 738/1836/2200 MHz (core/shader/memory), but the company makes use of a custom PCB and the Freezer DHT (direct heatpipe touch) GPU cooler. The cooler consists of a GPU contact block, in which the 3 heatpipes make direct contact with the GPU die. These convey heat to an aluminum fin array. The memory and VRM area are given independent heatsinks. The card continues to use two 6-pin PCI-E power inputs.

    That PCB looks compact.

    It is their strongest product right now from a price to performance point of view.

    That is quite a bit smaller. Did Nvidia just leave a lot of room to let heat spread out?

    What is the performance comparison between these and the 4850's? The price on these seems to be right around ~$200 on egg so a little more expensive than the average 4850.

    DrPepper: Indeed. Also, these 9800GTX+ GPU's make excellent Folding@Home data crunchers. :cool:

    nVidia really screwed up with the GTX2x0 pricing, forcing them to cut prices multiple times means lower profit margins selling GTX2x0 cards especially at a time when the ATI 48x0 is dominating the market.

    The introduction of the GTX260+ also means a backlog of GTX260 getting sold for even cheaper prices, and the GTX280 now almost unsellable due to the fact that the newer GTX260+ is so close to the GTX280 performance at a far lower cost.

    The 9800GTX+ is better value and probably yields a significant higher profit margin per card than the GTX2x0 series.
