ASUS, producer of top quality graphic solutions has today introduced the new ASUS EN8800GS TOP/HTDP/384M and EN8800GS/HTDP/384M graphic cards. The ASUS EN8800GS TOP/HTDP/384M is the world’s first overclocking version of the GeForce 8800GS chipset – allowing users to enjoy 8% improvements in gaming experiences. Additionally, both models come equipped with the newest thermal solution – the uniquely designed Glaciator Fansink, which features quiet and efficient heat dissipation to enable stable performance. Furthermore, the integrated SmartDoctor feature will provide users with the option to overclock the Shader Clock for even better graphical performances. 

Up to 8% Performance Upgrades

With the EN8800GS TOP/HTDP/384M, gamers can expect core, shader, and memory clock performance boosts from 550MHz up to 600MHz, from 1375MHz up to 1700MHz, and from 800MHz up to 900MHz respectively. Such unprecedented performance upgrades help elevate the EN8800GS TOP/HTDP/384M’s 3DMark06 score from 9571 to 10399 – an astounding 8% improvement in speed when compared to generic designed boards*. Gamers can now experience the rush of superb gaming performances only with the ASUS EN8800GS TOP/HTDP/384M.

Extreme Cooling with Exclusive Glaciator Fansink

The ASUS EN8800GS Series utilizes the Glaciator Fansink that is specially designed to effectively dissipate heat away from the graphics card. Much like real-life glacial storms, the Glaciator Fansink can quickly transfer heat away from the GPU to help lower temperatures. Besides this extreme cooling capacity, it is also very quiet with noise levels of only 25dB – almost imperceptible in a quiet room, and catering to users who require maximum cooling without excessive fan rotation noise. Both models also come specially equipped with the Cross heatsink that also lowers the Power IC temperature by 15ºC on average for more stable power supply**.

Overclock the Shader Clock with New SmartDoctor
ASUS garners a world’s first by providing an overclocking utility that is able to tweak the Shader Clock on GPUs with new SmartDoctor. With this application, users will be able to overclock the Shader Clock and Engine Clock independently for astonishing performance boosts without the hassles of rebooting or re-flashing their BIOS***.

Unprecedented Rock Solid Quality from ASUS

In line with the Rock Solid promise of quality from ASUS, the EN8800GS Series comes with several solutions to provide top quality graphic performance. The temperature of the newly adopted DIP Spring Chokes is 5~10oC lower in comparison to traditional Toroidal Coil Chokes; while the Japan-made polymer capacitors lowers power loss to provide more stable quality. Therefore, users will be able to enjoy extreme performance and feel secure with uncompromising quality only with ASUS EN8800GS Series.

Exclusive ASUS GamerOSD for Versatile Graphics Usage
The ASUS EN8800GS Series also comes with the exclusive ASUS GamerOSD that unleashes the true power of ASUS’ VGA cards. This feature is able to deliver GPU overclocking from onscreen displays during games – allowing users real-time performance upgrades when they require it. Additionally, it also provides users with the option to record live gaming action or live broadcasting over the Internet with ease.

Asus have done it again, another good looking and hopefully good performing GPU. Please do discuss on our Forum.

Wow alot of unessesary information there,

That is a laptop right?

I think that is your main issue!

Outside of that RAM isnt great but sufficient for that game.

Processor again isn't great sufficient but not great.

I dont think there is a great deal you can do to imporve the performance even doubling the ram and upgrading the CPU will not increase it to any noticable effect.

I guess you could try different driver versions and see if any of those work better, but i think it will be the mobile graphics card holding you back more than anything.

13-01-2008, 15:42:17

should have replied to this one, but i didn't see it.

It's all about getting an equilibrium between performance and prettiness.

Funny that it goes for a while then slows down.

13-01-2008, 15:56:04

Like its been said in one your other 3 or so threads, it could be an overheating problem if it starts after being in game for a while. Whats the cooling system like on it?

21-01-2008, 22:20:25

Sounds like something is overheating, this shouldnt affect your pings mind unless it starts running so slow your computer cant handle the incoming data.

Have you tried taking the side off and giving it a clean out recently?
