    That can be good and bad, for the power-user good, but for the budget user bad. I.E. if you have lots of money and can afford a new $500 card every 6 months this will be the year, but if you save up $500 bucks and can't afford to upgrade for another 2 years then you buy a new card and the next week a new better version is out...

    Last year it was slower, at the start of the year I had a gforce 3 (best card out) then in 6 months the gforce 4 was just released since the gforce 4 (six month period) the 9500P came out, gforce FX, 9700P & 9800P...I hope this makes sense

    Whilst this isn't news about the 9800 256mb, it's worth a read.

    KICK'N gaming performance
    ILLEST BRO ON DA BLOCK. The Xtasy 9800 Pro, reppin ATI's RADEON 9800 PRO VPU with 128MB DDR memory be KICK'n the CRAP outta demanding applications. Bring'n the heat through 8 pipelines, front'n 3 BILLION pixels per second! If THAT AIN'T 'nuff fo ya, try 4 parallel GEO-Metry engines, kick'n 380 million [T&L] polygons per second. The 9800 Pro reps 128-bit, 64-bit and 32-bit floating point color formats. HI-RES 32-bit 3D gaming up to 2048x1536 means that when demanding applications comes out to play& THE 9800 PRO BE KICK'N THE CRAP outta that motha & be cry'n like a little girl.

    FREAK'n SICKest Visual Effects
    SMOOTHVISION" 2.1 serves up awesome full-scene anti-aliasing. The 9800 Pro be front'n mo' than 18 BILLION (with a 'B') anti-aliasing samples per second for FREAK'N AWSOME performance up to 16 trilinear filtered texture samples per pixel. ATI's programmable SMARTSHADER" 2.1 makes lighting and texture effects look even mo' real.

    Ever Have TWO MONITORS at one time?
    ATI's HYDRAVISION" supports ol' school CRT monitors, digital flat panels, and TVs while VIDEOSHADER" enables integration of unbelievable digital video stuff, including advanced adaptive de-interlacing for FREAK'N SICK video quality. You just connect to a digital flat panel and dig crisper images and ease eyestrain directly.

    It was copied off Visiontek's new Xtasy 9800 Pro 128mb box.

    Will Doom3 or Half-Life2 (etc.) be able to use the whole 256mb of ram on the new video cards or will "only" 128mb be addressed ?
    From the benchies I've seen so far, the "extra" 128mb isn't much help at all.
