Zotac is among NVIDIA's board partners to come out with a 750a board
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
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.

This is a full early review for the GeForce 9800 GTX. Tweaktown apparently has a really good source for getting Nvidia graphics cards early, as I also recall reading a GeForce 9600 GT review a good week ahead of it's release. Apparently these folks don't need to abide by the NDA's that Nvidia sets forth.
Small spoiler: They weren't too impressed with the performance results...

Looks like they pulled the review?
