    Is there such a schematic for the 9800GX2 also? That's the card I'm after.

    Actually, you can't really compare this with a 8800 Ultra. Afterall, its based on 90nm fab and its being pushed to the max, unlike a 8800GTX, which still have some headroom for better performance. But end of the day, it also have to depends on how it performs per watt.
