Alright, we'll walk you through the card. Above, is the packaging design first of course. If you look to the right... yep yep... the frog is back ;)
Here we have the bundle, the basics are included. Clock frequency wise the card is factory clocked at 900 MHz on the primary graphics core, and slightly above reference at 4200 MHz on the gDDR5 memory (effective data rate). Included in the bundle are the regulars like PCIe power converters, driver CD and manual.
This card is made with silence in mind with that silent (single) fan cooler. The benefit as you'll learn later on is a very silent effect. The design is stylish alright, we like that. Red PCB, which is roughly 9-inches in length. This card will eat up two PCI slots (dual-slot).
Two 6-pin PEG power connectors are required for this board. Power consumption is rated at a 170W TDP for the reference design 1024MB model, the TDP as we measured it, is in fact a fraction higher due to the factory overclock. The power-connectors have been seated along the top side of the graphics card.
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.
