Amid a flurry of delays, NVIDIA launches two new products

NVIDIA continues its recent trend of launch delays by making even more 11th-hour embargo shifts. The company pushed the launch dates of many of its products that were expected to launch yesterday into next week.

This includes NVIDIA's new GeForce 9800GTX graphics cards and the new nForce 780a chipset.

In place of the delayed products, NVIDIA yesterday launched its nForce 730a chipset and lifted the embargo off of the GeForce 9800 GX2 SLI. Some vendors also announced the nForce 750a chipset.

The nForce 730a is NVIDIA's newest low end chipset. The chipset's most notable feature is support for NVIDIA's new Hybrid SLI technology, which DailyTech reported last week is also delayed. The nForce 750a chipset falls into a similar market category, and also comes with Hybrid SLI support and integrated NVIDIA PureVideo HD.

GeForce 9800GX2 Quad SLI configuration also launched yesterday -- SLI for the dual-GPU GeForce. However, nagging driver issues bar the combination from reaching its full potential.

NVIDIA provided no official explanations for the launch delays. This is the company's third set of delays this month.

Should remove the 9800GTX or replace with something like 'G92 Quad SLI', as the way it is now is clearly inaccurate/misleading. 9800GTX will release next week and will only be able to achieve Tri-SLI configurations.
