VR-Zone has gotten some preliminary 3DMark06 scores on the upcoming GeForce 9800 GX2 and 9800 GTX cards.  The setup:  Core 2 Quad Q6700 2.66GHz CPU on a P965 board with Forceware 173.67 drivers and Catalyst driver version 8.451. GeForce 9800 GX2 scored 14225, 9800 GTX scored 13167 while Radeon HD 3870 X2 scored 14301. Nvidia is still tuning up the drivers and the clock speeds aren't finalized yet so we should be seeing some improvements when launched. Currently, 9800 GX2 is slated for March 18th launch while 9800 GTX is slated for end March.



*UPDATE*  The first true 9800GX2 scores are in:

Hmm while ATI always did pretty well in synthetic benchmarks, I didn't think that the 9800GX2 would be slower than the 3870X2. The crossfirex drivers should increase performance also.

The SLi drivers aren't finalized yet, and neither are the 3870 X2 drivers.  I have a reason to believe that Nvidia will significantly outperform the ATi competition.  I also have a reason to believe that they continued with a new GX2 model with the notion that they won't be making the same mistakes with lack of driver support as in the previous model (because as you can see, Nvidia has been consistently pushing out new drivers for the past few months now).

The 9800GX2 scores 16100 in 3Dmark06 after a 130mhz oc on the core.\
