GeForce GTX+ 9800 

Released January, 2009
  • 740 MHz
  • 512 MB GDDR3
6.3 Out of 10

When our overclocks are put in perspective to the clocks of the NVIDIA 9800 GTX+ reference design (738/1100), the margin becomes even bigger: 13% and 9.

While the memory overclock was to be expected, because the memory chips are specified to run at 1200 MHz, the core overclock is very nice.

Reviews Word on the street for the GeForce GTX+ 9800

Even on a pre-overclocked product, we could increase the clock by another 10% (at least on our sample).

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Two six-pin PCI-Express power connectors supply the required power to the card.

Even Zotac's extra overclocking did not make much of a power draw difference.
by techPowerUp! (Aug, 2008)
Thanks to the 55 nm die shrink, the 9800 GTX+ consumes less power than the 9800 GTX, even though it's running at higher clock speeds.
by techPowerUp! (Aug, 2008)


It uses a complex base plate to cool not only the GPU core, but also the memory chips and the voltage regulation circuitry.
by techPowerUp! (Aug, 2008)
In order to fix this problem NVIDIA quickly announced a GeForce 9800 GTX+ which is identical to the 9800 GTX, but uses a die-shrinked 55 nm version of the G92 running at higher clock speeds.

Edition is a bit too expensive for the performance added.
by techPowerUp! (Aug, 2008)


One advantage the GTX+ cards have, is that they have more overclocking headroom left than ATI's offerings.
