    Common guesses seem to be a Zalman cooled 9800 Pro, which certainly fits with the size and the captions.

    Could also be a Zalman cooled 9800 Pro with 256MB and higher clock speeds, though. I'd hope it would be with such fanfare, but I'm not quite representative of the silent PC demographic, I think.

    Hmm...I'm not sure I want to be around when micron and Tahir see this...so, I'll just post the info and run while covering my eyes...

    It looks like it is a 256MB 9800 Pro with silent cooling after all, though whether it is the rumored 256MB 9800 Pro remains unclear.

    From Rage3D (from ben6):

    Sapphire's page, without any obvious further specifics.

    Well, its gotta be the 256MB version of the 9800pro? I wonder if the memory will be clocked higher? or if theywill use DDR-2 according to some rumors
