Inno3D GeForce 8800 GT iChill edition review
Posted by Hilbert Hagedoorn on: 04/10/2008 01:00 PM [ 0 comment(s) ]
Inno3D once again has a classic product on their hand. There are however a few points of constructive criticism. First off, that silly long fan power connector cable. That just doesn't make any common sense and just looks ghastly. Secondly, a big missed opportunity for the Inno3D Ichill 8800 GT is the fact that they left the Shader domain in the GPU at reference speed, and that's just a real shame ... especially opposed to the competition this is something where Inno3D looses it's advantage. And I don't get that as the card has very sufficient cooling.
Other than that, the product is obviously just lovely. It offers equal to GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB performance at a better price. The product overflows and oozes with a tremendous amount of bang for bucks, comes with a nice bundle. Aside from that, the AC Accelero X1 definitely is doing a good job cooling down the GPU, though is a tad on the noisy side and the one minor it has; it's disposing heat inside the PC, and not exhausting that heat. I'm just not a huge fan of that.
By itself the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT is already a killer graphics card, it's one of the most cost-effective products that money can buy and offers you a really fine gaming experience in this day and age.
The Inno3D GeForce 8800 GT IChill edition provides really good, close to higher-end performance for a fraction of last years high-end price. It also packs in more features to sweeten the deal. You receive GRAW2 (full game) for free, a customized card, standard overclock and a three year warranty. The biggest problem is finding these cards at e-tailers, I do hope that this is something that will change this year.
Products like these are all about product differentiation, being unique and creating a unique product. And though not clocking the Shader domain any faster is a missed opportunity, in the end it is a card that we can't recommend highly enough.
Warranty: 3 years
Price: 199 EUR
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.
