I can't help thinking that NVIDIA is getting a little worried about ATI's Radeon 4000 release next week. I just started testing the new RV770 GPUs myself and can tell you already, these are very price/performance effective products. Very interesting indeed as the cheapest Radeon 4000 series card will definitely match or is faster than a 9800 GTX.
To counteract the new Radeon 4000 products NVIDIA decided to quickly create another SKU in the market called NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ Pretty much it is a faster clocked NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX, and next to that ... the price is dropping pretty significantly towards a suggested retail price of $229 USD. Even better news, the GeForce 9800 GTX will drop towards 199 USD !
Gotta love the competition and after next week it's definitely going to be interesting to purchase a higher specced mid-range card as they'll get you excellent performance for the money you pay.
The GeForce 9800 GTX+ takes the highly efficient G92-based GeForce 9800 GTX and offers value for value conscious gamers.
Key product points:
GeForce 9800 GTX+ is the best single card price/performance at $229; the original GeForce 9800 GTX will transition to $199

Straight after the GeForce GTX 590 was released the first reports came in from overclockers that pushed a little bit too much voltage into the GPU, making the card in some cases die. It seems that the...
