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.

Mr. Smith
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
