Info: XFX Graphics
Yoyoyo! Party people whatup ? Shortly before the introduction of some new NVIDIA respin graphics cards, XFX decided to go out with a bang. I don't know how they did it but they are now offering a GeForce 8800 GTS armed with 320MB RAM under the Fatal1ty label that is so darn fast you won't believe it. I guess that spoils the surprise as to what we'll be testing today eh ?
So today we'll have a look at that fatal line from XFX, with a product which will bring a couple of new features to the existing product line for sure. The Fata1ty Geforce 8800 GTS 320MB graphics card comes with it's GPU core pre-overclocked at 650 MHz and it's 320 MB memory clocked at (2x) 999 MHz. If that isn't rather radical, the Shader domain inside that graphics processor is clocked at a lovely 1620 MHz. Now if that does mean jack to you, then basically these are the reference specs a 320 model normally has: 500 MHz core, 2x 800 MHz memory and a shader domain clock of 1200 MHz, can you already sniff the performance increase ? That's like bacon on your eggs man, you know it's not healthy but it's so delicious.
As you should know by now XFX has a somewhat "luxurious" version of the some of their graphics cards. Well actually two, they call it the XXX and Fatal1ty line of products, today flavored in the form of a GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB. So today the turn goes to the cream of the crop product from XFX; obviously we'll compare it to the default clocked 640 MB model, see at what resolution the frame-buffer limitation kicks in, and have a look what default faster clocks actually are doing in terms of performance over that 640 MB model. Oh and yes, fire off a couple of DX10 tests at them.
Still with me ? No ? Okay, go to the next page where I'll go a little deeper into this, but not until I've shown you exactly what we are reviewing today ...
A review on the XFX Black edition GeForce 9800 GTX, after reading some of you guys will probably will run to the store .. as the XFX XXX and Black editions obviously have fallen in price after AMDs Radeon 4850 launch.
XFX GeForce 9800 GX2 Black edition review
King of pre-overclocked products has to be XFX, their speed-bin of releasing OCed products is exceedingly fast. I do not think that there is an XFX product out there that is not available as a triple X edition or other series name slapped on top of it. Today will be no different, we received XFXes top of the shelf product, the GeForce 9800 GX2, the cool thing is that this is the new mystified named 'Black edition' series of cards, meaning it comes with a nice pre-overclock and an lovely game bundle.
XFX GeForce 9600 GT XXX 512MB review
A review on that XXX rated version of the GeForce 9600 GT. Hey, only XFX can implement such a name for you. XFX have a "way" of communication and getting attention. They quite honestly deliver really impressive products. Today's tested product is no different.
