I don’t plan on upgrading just yet, especially considering how much this thing is certain to cost, but if the performance of the 9600 is any indication, this new line is going to be great. 512MB of 0.8ns DDR3 memory with a 256-bit interface, nice high clock speeds, and a new architecture, looks like a winner. It also supports 3-way SLI, which I’m sure is as over-the-top as it sounds.
