From the Inquirer:

THE NVIDIA 9800GX2 is turning out to be a pretty huge joke, and it is not even out yet. I can't wait to see the fanbois on the forums bragging about how much they got taken for, prepare for laughs.

Why am I down on this card? Several reasons, the main one is price. It is absurdly expensive for what you get, and what you get isn't all that much.

We printed the numbers a few days ago, here if you missed it, and they are pretty woeful. Lets assume the worst for the 3870X2, call it 13,500 3DMark06, and lets assume the best for the the 9800GX2, with a driver drop and other hacks, say it hits 15K. A little math (15,000/13,500 = 1.111) tells us that it will be about 11% faster than the 3870X2. No problem so far.
