Yesterday, we brought you pictures of the upcoming GeForce 9800 GX2, courtesy of Albatron. Today, the folks at Expreview in China have come upon some photos that depict the rumored GeForce 9800 GTX. We've already seen several reports about this card, some of which claim it is coming this month and will more or less be a higher-speed version of the existing GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB with three-way SLI support tacked on.
Expreview's photos show the card with its cooler removed and its graphics processor bare, and they do seem to corroborate the aforementioned rumors. The GPU is stamped with a "G92-420-A2" model number, and the card's circuit board bears the same two "golden fingers" connectors as GeForce 8800 GTX and GeForce 8800 Ultra models. Those connectors are a requirement for three-way SLI support, but they're absent from all G92-based GeForce 8800-series offerings available today.
The purported GeForce 9800 GTX board looks like a longer version of the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB's, and it also features two six-pin PCI Express power connectors instead of one—an indicator the card may be clocked higher than its predecessor. Expreview shows a shot of the 8800 GTX and "9800 GTX" boards next to each other, and the latter looks to be roughly the same size as the older card.
