Gigabyte's in-house 8800 GT pictured

Zalman cooler and blue PCB

| Posted: Nov 7, 2007 4:29 am

We also got a picture of Gigabyte's own 8800 GT and by own, we mean full in-house design. This card is quite different to the reference design as it has done away with the large cooler and has been retro fitted with a Zalman cooler. The memory chips apparently doesn't need any cooling and the GDDR3 chips are from Qimonda and are rated at 1ns.

 

 

The card uses a Gigabyte blue PCB and it's the same quality as the PCB used in Gigabyte's motherboards. The card is also featuring a three-phase PWM design while the reference cards rely on a two-phase design. Gigabyte is also using all solid capacitors on its graphics cards.

 

This new 8800 GT design should be on the shop shelves in about a month to a month and a half away and it should be cheaper than the current reference design boards from Gigabyte.
