Inno3D GeForce 8800 GT iChill edition review
Posted by Hilbert Hagedoorn on: 04/10/2008 01:00 PM [ 0 comment(s) ]
The two DVI ports support simultaneous HDCP and dual-link (meaning a possible resolutions up-to 2560 x 1600 with your bitching 30" monitor). This has been a possibility since NVIDIA's release of 65nm products and this is the second card in the series to boast this feature, others being incapable of the feat.
With 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.
Love the black plating and gold colored DVI connector by the way.
At the rear end we stumble into the 6-pin power connector. As explained a couple of time already, the PCIe bus can not deliver enough current to the graphics card, and therefore you'll see a power connector feed straight from the power-supply.
The card itself has a pretty nice design, the X1 cooler is huge though and will eat up two slots. As you can see the residual heat is dumped at the bottom of the card, and thus dumped inside your PC, I'm not a fan of that especially for two-slot coolers. The flip side, it does do it's job really well though.
Last but most certainly not least the card photographed in our beefy test system, doing a good workout. Fabulous card people, even at such clocks we did not have one single stutter or hiccup, totally stable. Lovin' it.
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.
