    9600GT doesn't really have a market anymore now that the 4850 is here. Inno are too late with this into the market. Only thing going is the cooler. If this was maybe <£90 then its a real options, but £10 cheaper than the 4850!! I Know which one I would go for.

    Totally.
    Reading that article though it did occur to me - there are other architectural changes to the 9600GT that enable 64 SP's to keep up (nearly) with 112 of it's older siblings - so why hasnt nVidia released an updated 8800GT with these architectural changes?

    I was wondering if the 9800's had this, but most people view them as rebadged 8800GTX's with power saving stuff added.

    Is this right?

    It is the 9800GTX. They don't have much in common with the 8800GTX (and you see some differences in the performance profiles across games too).

    Oh, ok then. So why isnt the 9800GTX miles and miles better than an 8800GTX?
    Is it because of the memory bandwidth stuff?

    No, the 9800GTX is based on the 8800GTS 512mb not the 8800GTX
