The Package

In typical fashion there's not a whole lot going on with this package. We've got the standard Palit box layout, while inside we find no extra cables or anything, just a quick installation guide along with a driver CD.

Having a look at the card, we've got that typical trademark red PCB from the company. The cooler doesn't look too bad, but isn't anything too fancy. Hopefully it can do something special, but we're not really holding our breath, which you'll understand when you see some of the other coolers on the other cards we have here.

 

As for connectivity it shares the same Dual Link DVI, VGA and native HDMI setup as all the other cards we have here today.

Like the GT 220 we looked at from Palit recently, this model also falls in as part of the Sonic series. What this means is out of the box the card's overclocked. As you can see above, we have a 585 MHz / 1424MHz / 3780MHz QDR setup. This is up from the stock 550 MHz / 1340 MHz / 3400MHz QDR setup. Unlike the other cards, this one also carries with it 1GB of GDDR5 memory, something that Palit say they're only capable of.
