Asus EN 8800 GTX - nVidia's G80 Performance Revealed

Packaging and Package

Packaging

Asus have put the 8800GTX in perhaps the biggest box I have ever seen a graphics card in. It's huge, and you definitely notice that they are giving you GRAW free with this card.

Also on the front we notice that we've got 3DMark06, GTI Racing and Asus's "Splendid" Video enhancement Technology.

The box also has a handle which gives a nice touch of quality about the feel of your purchase and allows you to comfortably carry it home from the Post Office!

The inside of the box is again nicely done, with compartments for everything and Asus's usual attention to detail:

Inside the box you will find an array of software and hardware for your perusal:

* 2 x Dual Molex to PCI-e power dongles
* 1 x Faux leather CD wallet

All in all a decent bundle from Asus, although a couple of "could do betters" in there for such a high-end card. I would have liked to see another DVI > VGA converter and an added S-Video > Composite Cable. Also some sort of DVD software would have been a nice addition.

However despite these slight omissions, Asus have put in a nice bundle.

Great insight into the higher end of the gpu spectrum.

I have to be fair, even tho u`ve got a 1 to 4 positioning, I don`t think there`s that much in it for any of them. I know the Ati slides in the rankings, but it does show itself to be a fine card.

An interesting comparison would have been performance versus costing, seeing as they`re as close as they appear to be.

I`m a bit at odds with the oc results too. I simply can`t achieve the memory overclock on my GT without it having fits. But I can clock the gpu to around 720 (from 670).

What would impress me is some1 buying the cheapest GT, putting it under water, and claiming back those clock hertz with their superior cooling. Sounds nice.

Suprizes me a bit tho that the GTS isn`t launched as a bigger performer. Although pricewize, it does seem to start from stock where the GT limit starts. Leaving u further to climb

Nice review m8, think every1s doing the "going to bed early to get up early" trick Quote
