The 9800 GTX+ is just one of those cards that doesn't seem to be creating any real waves for NVIDIA; this seems to be a bit of a trend lately, though. The 9800 GT which was nothing more than a rebadged 8800 GT with a new price tag didn't really excite all that many people and the new GTX 260 that's being shown around seems to not only bore end users, but doesn't seem to be creating any real sparks with NVIDIAs AIB partners either.
Like most companies, though, Gainward has released a 9800 GTX+, but unlike most other companies, they've taken the time to do something with it. Today we find out what exactly that is and if it can make the 9800 GTX+ a little more exciting.
Unlike the HD 4850 we looked at from Gainward the other day, this card doesn't come in under the Golden Sample naming scheme. That doesn't mean that it's not going to be an exciting card, though, so let's check out the package before we take a closer look at the card.
