they said the same about the Geforce4 MX, granted it wasn't the excat same situation, but no one can honestly say the MX was a bad card, it was one of Nvidia's most popular cards, but the community at large called it a lame duck

i really find it hard to find a product that sucks at everything.

the 8800 gt is a good card as you say, so the 9800 gt is a good card as well if there wasnt the name. how much does it matter for the end user if his card is called 8800, 9800, 10800, or donald duck as long as it performs? sure its lame from nvidia to not innovate at all, but declare a product useless because of that?
Very well said. The name on the card, IMO, means nothing.

I think it has one important thing every one forgot....Hybrid SLI technology. again cant these guys implement it on the card itself by disabling sp s than using a separate set on a motherboard. hope the next gen does that.
