Inno3D GeForce 9800 GTX Overclock Edition
|Product:||GeForce 9800 GTX|
Aah finally I have time to get back to my regular review schema. Current and recent releases from both ATI and NVIDIA created a waiting queue for other products and the review today has been pending for 4 weeks *coughs*
None the less, coincidentally, the product we review today underwent a brutal price fall, see we are testing the GeForce 9800 GTX from Inno3D and it is their OC edition. After the price fall, this product is roughly as fast as the 9800 GTX+ and comes with a premium bundle, all that at roughly 229 USD. Not a bad deal folks.
Today's tested product will come from Inno3D, in the past we have tested a lot of their products. They offer good quality products. Earlier last year they introduced a very powerful concept with their custom cooled solutions under the label iChill. A big hit from the very beginning. Today's product does not come from that iChill line, yet from their OC edition graphics cards.
A reference based GeForce 9800 GTX, yet pre-tested and qualified to run at higher clock-speeds. That and a better bundle as Inno3D is now bundling a DX10 title with the OC edition, namely Company of Heroes, Opposing fronts from THQ.
But don't let me spoil all the fun just yet, below hiding behind that shield, we have the card .. let's fire up the games. Woohaa.
In this review we'll look at the GeForce GTX 660 Ti from Inno3D, it's their all new GeForce GTX 660 Ti iCHILL version and to date is one of the most impressive graphics cards in the 660 Ti range we have tested.
Inno3D GeForce GTX 580 OC review
We review the Inno3D GeForce GTX 580OC. Despite a very high price tag the product seems to become a nice success. As such directly at launch several models based of this SKU where already announced, e.g. the regular clocked models, factory higher clocked models, liquid cooled models. This OC edition, in particular this is a reference GeForce GTX 580 that has been clocked faster to 820 MHz on the core where it also welcomes a nice bump on the overall memory frequency.
Inno3D GeForce GTX 460 OC review
We test and review the Inno3D GeForce GTX 460 OC. The Inno3D GeForce GTX 460 OC model we test today flexes the GPU and memory muscle all the way up towards a rocking core of 750MHz, the shaders to 1500 MHz and the GDDR5 to 3800 MHz (effective). Armed with a 2-year limited warranty, Inno3D is trying real hard to not only bring a nice custom board to the market, but tries to release pre-overclocked models at a fairly normal pricing, yet with a hefty overclock. And whenever there's 'overclock' in the branding .. there is of course Guru3D.com
Inno3D GeForce GTX 480 iChill Black Series review
We test and review the Inno3D GeForce GTX 480 iChill Black Series. This GeForce GTX 480 graphics card is liquid cooled. With a liquid cooled loop you can bring down temperatures towards roughly 50 Degrees (under full load), that's roughly 40 degrees less than the reference cooler offers. Obviously you'll need a proper water-cooling setup to add this card to but yeah, today we'll review the i-ChiLL GeForce GTX 480 Black Series equipped with a liquid cooling block. In the package we'll spot a "full cover" water-block that is responsible for cooling down the GPU, Voltage Regulators, I/O chip, memory modules, and other critical components.
