Hello and welcome to part 2 of Guru3D's CeBIT 2008 coverage. If you by any chance just popped into this article, please click on part #1 of the article (hey otherwise you'd miss out on all other good stuff). We continue where we left off.
We will go on with with the fine people at Inno3D. Granted; we've always had a soft spot for Inno3D and ever since they started producing their Customized OC and iChill versions of their graphics cards things seem to have really picked up for them. Now, just like many other companies, they will start slowly introducing mainboards under the Inno3D brand-name as well. Anyway, enough said, let's have a peek at some photo's at their booth.
Of course, what else ? The 9800 GX2 was apparent at the Inno3D booth as well. Unfortunately the cards are all the same reference models slapped with a sticker on top of it. But hey .. we all love the photo's right ? Trust me when I say, you'll see plenty more photo's on it.
I know we are a little spoiled when it comes to our product testing, we always receive the OC and more niche products as well .. it's good marketing and branding for any company plus it meets out target audience (yes my man, that would be you). Therefore seeing the GeForce 8600 GT like that makes me giggle a little.
The new GeForce 9600 GT iChill edition will get the new "Hurricane" cooler. Hey .. I don't make up the names you know. That looks serious for sure. It's in fact a APack ZEROtherm cooler, the guys behind the most wicked designed coolers.
I'm just hoping this cooler won't effect the noise levels too much. Small note ... this iChill edition will get an amazing core clock of 750 MHz, 1625 on the shader domain and 1940 MHz on it's memory. That's pretty serious. My preliminary estimate based on these number tell me that's close to 8800 GT performance.
The more regular iChill version with Arctic cooling Accelero X1 cooler.
