Palit GeForce GTS 250 2048MB unboxing
On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at high-resolution and then cropped and scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D 12 MegaPixel.
Here we see the packaging, yeah the frog again :) We always show packaging so you can recognize it in the stores. Clean and simple, nothing wrong with that. The components are all well packaged.
- GeForce GTS 250 2048 MB
- Driver CD
- manual / quick install guide
- HDMI->DVI dongle (to make a 2nd DVI port available).
- SP/DIF cable
- 6-pin power converter
A lot can be said, but one thing is a certainty .. the custom cooling jumps our very visible. It's quite a good looking card really. Though I do have to admit would like to see Palit use another PCB color. Black would have kicked ass, .. oooh (!) or kickass yellow :)
Very nice, next to the dual-link DVI connectors an actual HDMI connector. You can hook up two monitors with high resolutions over 2560x1600 pixels with , and the next to that the traditional VGA connector. You can create a second DVI port, by using an included HDMI-> DVI converter.
Due to the height of the cooler, the graphics card uses up two slots. Also notice the two SLI fingers to your bottom right. Allowing you to opt up-to 3-way SLI, meaning on selected motherboards you can have three cards rendering your games simultaneously.
For this review we test and benchmark the Palit GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost OC edition. The product comes customized with their own PCB design, a dual-fan cooler, 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core baseclock slightly overclocked.
Palit GeForce GTX 660 Ti Jetstream review
In this review we'll look at the GeForce GTX 660 Ti from Palit, it's their all beefed up version, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti JetStream version. The GTX 660 Ti again has been equipped with a JetStream series cooler yet which remains a 3-slot design. It runs at a core clock frequency of 1006 MHz, has a boost frequency of 1085 MHz and the effective memory data rate (192-bit) is 6108 MHz.
Palit GeForce GTX 670 JetStream review
We review the Palit GeForce GTX 670 JetStream graphics card. the JetStream version which comes pre-overclocked at 1006 MHz on the baseclock and an impressible 1084 MHz on the boost clock. More interestingly, the boost clock during our test sessions was actually closer to 1200 MHz most of the time (!). To give the card enough framebuffer to work with the cards are equipped with 2048 GDDR5 on a 256-bits wide bus. Palit clocks this memory at 6108 MHz.
Palit GeForce GTX 680 4GB Jetstream review
We review the Palit GeForce GTX 680 4GB Jetstream edition. Why 4 GB ? Well some of you like to game at extremely high resolutions or have 8xAA as a bare minimum. If a graphics card runs out of graphics memory it'll starts swapping frames back and forward in that framebuffer which decreases the overall framerate. So today we'll look at the 4GB model, we'll specifically place a focus at some tests at 2560x1600 with a good chunk of AA enabled to see what difference the extra 2GB graphics memory will bring us in terms of performance.
