More 9800 GTX+ reviews emerge, PhysX tested
LegitReviews also tested the performance benefits PhysX brings to the table. In 3DMark Vantage, a 9800 GTX+ with PhysX enabled scored an additional 689 points over a standard GTX+.
The NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ was designed to be a spoiler to ATI’s Radeon HD 4850/4870 and it might have done the job. The GeForce 9800 GTX+ was faster in the majority of the benchmarks we tested it on and it had a tad more overclocking head room than the ATI Radeon HD 4850 did. The MSRP on the GeForce 9800 GTX+ is $229 and with NVIDIA enforcing UMAP pricing it’s likely that they won’t go much below that figure. The other downside to the GeForce 9800 GTX+ is that you can’t buy it now as you’ll have to wait until July 2008 to get one. The good news is that NVIDIA has made the move to 55nm and it looks like they pulled it off.
