Cons: None. I hear the new ATI HD 4*** series may actually be a great product and be better than NVIDIA.
Other Thoughts: It's really big (long, plus it's a double slot).
I wanted the 9800GT, but it wasn't out yet. Another good item is the 8800GT. Remember to connect the 6-pin power connector. A while ago I liked ATI, but the Geforce series will rock a comparable Radeon card, but as above, things may finally change with the new ATI cards.
When NVIDIA's G92 core was unleashed unto the world in the form of the GeForce 8800 GT, it received acclaim from basically every corner you could possibly imagine, and with good reason thanks to its wonderful price to performance ratio.
Continuing on with more coverage of the new 8800GTS 512MB, we have with us a pair of 8800GTS G92 based cards from ASUS.
The two cards are slightly different from each other; we have a standard 512MB 8800GTS which isn’t something too out of the ordinary. The other card is part of the TOP series from ASUS which comes pre-overclocked out of the box. We’ll venture closer into the cards over the next two pages.
Let’s not delay any longer and move on to the package of the cards before we check the cards out themselves and roll on into the benchmarks.
GeForce 8800 Ultra is the elder of the roundup, almost a year old, but is based on an architecture which is even older. 8800 Ultra is more or less just handpicked and overclocked 8800GTX cores, named G80 , where the plus is suppose to alleviate it from the rest. The cooler is new, but other than that the differences are basically none. The card may be at the end of its life expectancy, but the samples that are still available in stores are just as expensive as they ever were.
