ASUS EN9800 GTX 512MB Graphics Card - The Card

We've got our first retail 9800 GTX on the table, this one being in the form of a stock offering from ASUS.

The Card

 

With the box out the way it's time to check out the card. Straight away you notice the cooler takes up the majority of the card. It also uses the reference cooler which doesn't come as a surprise.

 

 

The only thing that ASUS has done is cover the entire cooler in a sticker that resembles the company, which is pretty much standard these days.

 

 

 

Making your way around the card we have our two PCI Express power connectors across the top. Fortunately these are just standard 6-pin connectors and not the more obscure and rarer 8-pin connectors that we see on the 9800 GX2.

 

Continuing across the top of the card we also have our two SLI connectors which of course give us full support for Tri SLI (three of these cards) if you have the money and a supporting motherboard.

 

 

Finally moving to the I/O side of things, we can see the card is of course a dual slot one. We have the standard two Dual Link DVI connectors alongside the TV-Out port.

 

Specifications

 

Like we've already mentioned, the card carries with it just the default clocks which means the core comes in at 675MHz, the shader clock carries with it a speed of 1688MHz and the memory comes in at that very nice number of 2200MHz DDR.
