Palit GeForce 9800 GT 1 GB Video Card Review

Introduction (Cont’d)

We removed the video card cooler to take a look. As you can see in Figure 5, the cooler base is made of copper, using two thick copper heat-pipes to connect the base to the aluminum fins.

Figure 6: Cooler.

On Figures 7 and 8 you can see the video card without its cooler. It uses fourteen 512-Mbit Qimonda HYB18H512321BF-10 GDDR3 chips, making its 896 MB memory (512 Mbits x 14 = 896 MB). These chips can officially work up to 1 GHz or 2 GHz DDR. On this video card the memories were running at 900 MHz or 1.8 GHz DDR, so there is 11% headroom for you to overclock the memories keeping them inside their specs. Of course you can always try to push them above their official specs.

In Figure 9 you have a close-up on the graphics chip used, G92-270-A2. This is the exact same graphics chip used on GeForce 8800 GT, as you can see here.

This video card comes with the full version of Tomb Raider Anniversary. With the accessories that come with this card you can convert the video output to VGA and HDMI, plus the DVI and S-Video connectors already present on the product.

Now let’s compare the specifications from GeForce 9800 GT to the other video cards we included in this review.
