As you're already aware, NVIDIA is preparing to counter the ever-growing threat of AMD's recently-benchmarked Radeon HD 4850 and forthcoming HD 4870 with its 55nm GeForce 9800 GTX+.

We're expecting the suped-up card to land sometime in July, but Inno3D is hot out of the gate with the announcement of its own 9800 GTX+.

Sadly, those of you waiting for a super-suped-up Accelero Xtreme will be left waiting a little longer. Inno3D's launch 9800 GTX+ offers NVIDIA's reference clock speeds of 738MHz core and 1836MHz shader. The 512MiBs of GDDR3 memory, however, clocks in at 2,200MHz, 200MHz higher than NVIDIA's reference spec.

NVIDIA is preparing drivers that'll add PhysX support to coincide with the 9800 GTX+ launch and Inno3D promises the card will be around 15 per cent faster than the soon-to-be-cheaper 9800 GTX.

There's no confirmed release date just yet, but pricing is expected to be at around $229. It's going to be a good ol' race for the mid to high-end performance crown, stay tuned as we'll be putting a 9800GTX+ up against AMD's HD 4000 series.

Official press release: Inno3D GeForce 9800GTX+, it just got better!

well tbh, i dont expect these new 55nm chips todo well compared to ati/amd. Ati have had worked with 55nm alot longer than nivida and can then use it to a higher degree of power. This 15% performance boost is ok but its nvidia, they have just been releasing time and time again a refresh and something renamed, the only difference is the 55nm move but its not a huge jump compared to the older cards jumps.

I wonder if nvidia really get off their asses and make this card better than expected.

In the end it doesn't really matter if it's just a refresh, as long as it's better than the previous card, and it beats the competition (cheaply) then the consumer gets a better deal.
