The cost of two GT cards or a single GT is roughly the same, and the performance is close. Gigabyte’s own overclocking tool, V-Tuner 2 Plus completes the bundle for those who hope to get a bit more performance from their cards. Not one manufacturer went with anything other than the plain and boring reference cooling solution, which I might add was extremely noisy. Gigabyte obviously knows the desirability of its bundled game and the packaging is hence unabashed in its Serious Sam imagery. Sign up for free , it takes 30 seconds. Of course, now there is a little bit of diversity in the GT range as big name manufacturers such as ASUS and Gigabyte are onto their second or third revision.

While this is not the latest version, it is still a very decent application for DVD playback.
In fact, Albatron has created allbatron nice little GeForce GT option focusing purely on the graphics card itself. Unfortunately, for the price that you pay for the Gigabyte, one DVI output is all you’ll get; the other output is the usual analog VGA. Like many low-end graphics products, Gigabyte’s version features a passive cooler.

The DDR2 memory chips are rated at 2.

For example, Gigabyte went with a basic heatpipe design and MSI used a large black heatsink with a copper pipe at the base to help evenly distribute the heat. In that sense, the Gigabyte probably holds up to its claims of being Rather than including several poor quality games, Albatron offers nothing more than the NVIDIA drivers suite which has allowed them to budget for a “better” graphics card.
So basically, the reason why we initially see such a huge range of generic graphics cards is because the race is on to deliver the product as soon as possible, at the best price. However, it was Albatron that impressed me the most, with their very serious heatsink design that does bare a remarkable resemblance to that of ASUS’ Silent coolers.
Making matters worse, almost all of them were built on the same plain old green PCB.

Not only has Albatron made their GT completely silent using a high-quality passive cooler, but by doing so has allowed for a 50MHz core and a MHz memory clock increase. Add your comment to this article You need to be a member to leave a comment.
Not one albatrin went with anything other than the plain and boring reference cooling solution, which I might add was extremely noisy. Gigabyte obviously knows the desirability of its bundled game and the packaging is hence unabashed in its Serious Sam imagery.
The strategy makes sense, but at times I wonder if the quick sales are worth tarnishing the reputation of a manufacturer such as ASUS.

However, the modest clock speeds mean that the price of the Gigabyte would probably be more in tune with its low-end image. The cooler on the Gigabyte utilizes heat pipe technology to transfer the heat to a special section of cooling fins, which should dissipate heat faster bt the conventional chunk of aluminum heatsink.
However given such an overclock, performance can be boosted dramatically. The end result is an impressive-looking passive heatsink that keeps the GPU tg and memory cool at all times.
As a result, it has been far more joyful testing these cheaper low-end graphics cards, as each and every one seems to be a little different. Here’s an inventory list of the items: So the jaw dropping performance of the Gainward is unlikely to be repeated.
The GeForce GT on the other hand did not get the attention of the GT upon launch and there did albatton seem to be such a rush to get this product to the masses. Gigabyte’s own overclocking tool, V-Tuner 2 Plus completes the bundle for those who hope to get a bit more performance from their cards. For example, when the GeForce Albaatron cards were first released, I found myself with albatgon a dozen graphics cards that looked almost identical in every way.
Let’s consult the performance results in the next few pages before we draw any conclusions Recently I heard a rumor that ATI will ship their next generation graphics cards without a reference cooler.
