Galaxy Geforce 8800 GT HDMI w/ Xtreme Tuner -
Page 4 - Photos #1
On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at 2560x1920 pixels and then scaled down. The camera used was a Sony DCS-F707 5.1 MegaPixel.
Okay the completely new box design for Galaxy, that's looking much better.
Revision one with bad bad cooler !
Revision 2 - with much better cooler ! Did you spot any differences ? I didn't. It's the same cooler, yet RPM control now works properly. Anyway; looks good though, right ? There's nothing reference about this product though. We'll tilt the card a little and allow me to show you.
There we go .. first things first. The frontside. All NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT / GeForce 8800 GTS-based graphics cards are HDCP capable. The distinct difference for the 8800 GT product is, it can do it on both DVI/HDMI ports simultaneously. Given the fact HDMI is supported natively, Galaxy made a bold move and integrated a HDMI connector on the card. May I say finally ? Thank gawd that a manufacturer is doing this.
The DVI port supports simultaneous HDCP and dual-link (meaning a possible 2560 x 1600 for 30"). To the left the 7-pin HDTV-out mini-din, a user can plug an S-video cable directly into the connector, or use a dongle for YPrPb (component) or composite outputs. The prior 9-pin HDTV-out mini-din connector required a dongle to use S-video, YPrPb and composite outputs.
In this review we'll have a peek at the warmongers from KFA2 (Galaxy), they unleash this cute little beastly looking GTX 550 Ti LTD OC White edition graphics card. And to make it even more special, they slapped all components on a sexy white PCB again. Armed with that atypical looking cooler you'll learn that this product makes no compromises, you will not hear it, it will not run hot and it even comes factory clocked at a full GHz, quite amazing as GPUs seem to slowly pass that weird 1 GHz threshold.
Galaxy GeForce 9800 GT 1024MB review | test
We test a product from the guys at Galaxy, and that means customization and extra features, all for a fair price. Custom PCB, custom cooling, custom bracket, HDMI output, black DVI+backplate heck it even packs 1024MB of memory to play around with for roughly the same money as a 512MB model. All fairly impressive really.
Galaxy GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB review
Galaxy GeForce 9800GTX PLUS test - Galaxy recently released this product, custom PCB, custom cooling, custom bracket, HDMI output, black DVI and backplate. I sometimes wonder why a small company consistently can push out striking products like that and the bigger AIBs mainly focus on the reference design.
Galaxy Geforce 8800 GT HDMI w/ Xtreme Tuner
Our initial review of this product was taken offline as we received an early version of the product. This early version had a "beta" cooler on it that made a truck-load of noise. Galaxy claimed to have a new cooler ready and asked if if we could revise the review based on the new and final cooler. And therefore we have updated this initial article to revision 2; based on new facts with the final cooling solution implemented. And it sure is a lot better.
