9800 GX2 clearly wins over 3870 X2


CES 2008: Faster chips

We said this back in 2007, but let us be clear on one thing. Nvidia’s upcoming high-end sandwich board, Geforce 9800 GX2, is going to end up faster than a single Radeon 3870 GX2.

This comes as no surprise, as Nvidia’s single G92 is faster than a single RV670, and in the same matter a dual chip Nvidia beats ATI.

Radeon 3870 X2 will be very competitive, as its single chip brother is still a bit slower compared to Nvidia. We still believe that Radeon 3870 X2 will have quite good sales, as it will be significantly cooler than Nvidia’s card and it will be available in massive numbers.
