When the NVIDIA GeForce 9 series of graphics cards launched back February 2008 with the GeForce 9600 GT leading the way, many enthusaists didn't see the performance jump they were used to seeing and saw the series as a polished GeForce 8 GPU with a new name. The GeForce 9800 GX2 was launched in March 2008 and was the fastest card on the market, but wasn't really innovative as it was again just a couple GeForce 8 series cores on a new board. By the time April 2008 came around the GeForce 9800 GTX it was yet another G92 based product and many enthusiasts were not impressed. Those that bought the GeForce 8800 GTX back in November 2006 had a card that was still faster in many applications and had no real reason to upgrade unless they wanted the new video processor or better power consumption numbers.
