We saw the 9800 GTX+ launch a little bit back, but samples have been scarce and stock has been even harder to get a hold of. It's been a while since we've seen a card be a paper launch, but it seemed the 9800 GTX+ was exactly that. It was designed to help draw attention away from the release of the new AMD cards.
It didn't really seem to work, though, as there seems to have been very little talk of people saying that they're going to wait for the release of the 9800 GTX+. It looks like the card is going to start to hit the retail channel now with more and more companies having samples ready and stock shipping out to their distributors.
Today we're not only looking at a standard GTX+, but the overclocked model from ASUS that comes in under the TOP naming scheme. Let's have a quick look at the package and the card along with what ASUS has done with the core, shader and memory clock.
