Introduction

While the GTX 260/280 cards have taken over nVidia's top slots for video card gaming hardware, their 9 series continues to flush out the bulk of their product lineup, and the 9800 GTX+ reigns as top dog among the 9 series family. The original 9800 GTX sported a 65nm G92 die with 675Mhz core clock and 2200Mhz effective memory. The GTX+, as nVidia has labeled it, launched in mid-summer and represents the cards that utilize the 55nm die shrunk G92 core with a new, faster speed of 738Mhz and the same 2200Mhz effective memory. Other specifications are identical; the smaller die uses the same architecture as the old GTX, with just under 10% less power consumption.


The WinFast PX9800 GTX+ Leadtek Limited appears to have identical specs to their standard PX9800 GTX+ with the only difference being that of a slightly different cooler face and bundled game selection. Otherwise both match the nVidia reference specification in clock speeds and chip design. With 128 processor cores, a 738Mhz core speed and 1836Mhz shader, the 9800 GTX+ has a texture fill rate of over 47 billion per second. The memory interface is 256bit, with 512Mb of DDR3 running at 1100Mhz (2200Mhz effective) and a bandwidth of more than 70Gb per second. The card is of course, DirectX 10 compliant, compatible with the 16x PCI-E 2.0 specification and supports 2-way and 3-way SLI.
