NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GX2: specs and benchmarks
- Interface PCIe 2.0 x16
- Core clock speed 600MHz
- Max video memory 512 MB
- Memory type GDDR3
- Memory clock speed 1000MHz
- Maximum resolution
NVIDIA started GeForce 9800 GX2 sales 18 March 2008 at a recommended price of $599. This is a Tesla architecture desktop card based on 65 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 512 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1 GHz are supplied, and together with 512 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 128 (64 per GPU).
Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 10.5" (26.7 cm). 6-pin & 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 197 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

Non-gaming benchmark performance of GeForce 9800 GX2. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
