It's because they are pointless and needlessly add to the production costs, the pictures dont even look good.

I Like the i dear that the shaders are faster then the core!
Wish AMD would doing the same thing!

Just a small note: the only reason why this new card offers "up to 116%* more performance than its predecessor" is because the 8600 was that BAD.

The leap is great, i admit, but i don't want people to think they made it THAT fast. its all relative, of course.

Not necessarily, the 8800GS would fill that niche, this card was origionally designed to take on the 3850 as NVidia did not have any competition for ATI's excellent offering.

NVidia could have had easy competition for the 3850, they just didn't want to take they high end card and simply down clock it and call it a mid-range. They like to give their high-end customers something to feel special about, not screw them over by making them pay for nothing more than clock speeds.

I was just going to say that. I bet AMD's 38xx series was really surprising for nVidia. From price/performance perspective they simply didn’t know how to counter it. Hence the fumbling on their part in the immediate release aftermath and the hurried release of the 8800GS. A poor, neutered, ROP and bandwidth starved card in my opinion.

As for 9600GT, no thanks. Last time I owned a x600 GT card from nVidia was few years back, a BFG 6600GT, which had a malfunctioning DAC which in turn damaged one of my CRT monitors.

And what’s up with the whole "single crystal oscillator" issue on 9600GT cards?

I thought they did counter at least the 3870......with the 8800GT, its now priced roughly the same and its faster, the 3850 was the real "jewel in the crown" for ATi.

i think.. thow i could be wrong.. this is basically a rebadged 8800gt.. which would explain why it goes so well..

which kinda fits my thinking.. the original 8800gt was never meant to be.. an intended 9xxx card brought forward to counter the ati 3870.. its now back where it was meant to be.. a rebadged 8800gts will now become the lower end 98xxx series card..

all in all leaving a lesser gap between the 9600 and the 9800 cards..

i think ati have kinda messed up nvidias line up..

this one goes 100% better than its predecessor.. the 98xx ones aint gonna thow.. he he

Well, just threw two into my secondary back-up lan party rig(q6600,2 xbfg 9600gt, 4gb ddr 800, evga 680i) And I see a huge difference coming from two 8800gts 640mb cards. FPS are much higher in high resolutions.
