Asus EN9800GTX performance preview

Asus have kindly sent us one of their brand new EN9800GTX's to play with.

Due to not having the card very long, the full review isn't quite ready yet but we thought you might like a little teaser of what's to come.
 
 
GPU Core: G92
GPU Speed: 675MHz
Memory: 512MB
Memory Bit Rate: 256 Bit
Memory Type: GDDR3
Memory Speed: 1100MHz (2200MHz)
Pipelines/Stream Process: 128
ROPs: 16
Transistors: 754M
Cooling: Fan
Interface: PCI-E 2.0 (x16)
Connectivity: 2 x Dual Link DVI-I & S-Video Out with HDCP


As you can see, the core clock, which is made on a 65nm process, is running at pretty quick stock speed of 675MHz and the memory at a supercharged  2200MHz..
 
The Card

The card itself is about as large as the 8800GTX which is to be expected from a high end Nvidia offering.  Its has a pretty standard dual slot cooler installed with a picture of a CGI girl, along with the card model emblazoned across the front.  The rear of the card shows that the Asus 9800GTX uses a rather cool looking black PCB.

In this last picture we see that Asus have gone for a little more advertising and splashed their logo along with the model number along the side of the card.

I'm not really impressed. It only just beats the gts/gt/88gtx...

I'll wait for the games tests but i'm thinking it will oc like a beast and then maybe pull away from the other cards... £200 it's cheap but... It just doesn't rock my sox off.Quote

Indeed, answers including the requirement for the extra 6pin power connector over the cards it`s barely better than.Quote

Should have been the 8900.

I can't see the point with the 9900 due to come out.Quote

My SLi'ed 8800GTS 512 ain't going nowhere until there's a revolution in the GFX-card market. Waiting for the G100 to make it's appearance, and see what it can do. Still, no point in upgrading to the 9-series, unless you're going from 7 or below.Quote

I'm going in clean so I'm looking forwards to this review, the 8800GTX and 9800GTX I want are both the same price and I'm yet unsure which to go for. The 9800 seems to have the edge in most other reviews, but the GTX is the XFX XXX version so its probably just as good :SQuote

From what I've seen so far you're not wrong.. Expect some massively high overclocks I reckon.Quote
