Asus EN9800GX2, bundled with Company of Heroes
Whatever happend to the "manly" graphics card? Of course, the Ninja Geisha emblazoned on the front of the card could likely dish out a can of whoop as well we suspect. Word has it a slow boat from Taiwan might be carrying a few of these to the US soon... very soon.

cant wait for a review
So far the 9800 GX2s have not performed quite as good as I was expecting, so I don't think the 9 series lineup for Nvidia is going to be something special. Driver updates later on might help, but i don't think it will too much.
The 9800GX2 is still based on on the G92, while the other cards in the 9 series won't be. The 9600GT is almost as fast as the 8800GT, so a real sinlge-gpu 9800 should outdo an 8800 Ultra. And I can't call the GX2 disappointed since it still offers the best single card performance in most games. We just have to see where street prices fall. So far they are $599 which isn't bad. Sure you can get SLI 8800GTs or GTSs for a little less, but if you don't have an SLI board this will be cheaper than buying a new mobo too.
