We climb to the TOP of the food chain and see what ASUS is doing with the 9800 GTX in its TOP Edition.

The Card

 

With the package out the way, it's time to check out the card. Unfortunately, unlike a lot of other TOP models from ASUS we simply have the standard reference cooler.

 

 

ASUS has done the general pimp up of the cooler with a sticker covering the whole fan along with a little ASUS logo.

 

 

 

Since the card carries with it the reference cooler, it's no surprise that we have the standard two PCI Express connectors across the top of the card along with the two SLI connectors close to the I/O side of things.

 

 

Before we check out the specifications of the card, we quickly check out the I/O side of things which carries with it two Dual Link DVI connectors and a single TV-Out port.

 

Specifications

 

While the standard 9800 GTX carries with it a decent clock speed of 675MHz on the core, 1688MHz on the shader and 2200 MHz DDR on the memory, ASUS has really kicked it up a notch with a 755MHz core, 1850MHz shader clock and a 2350MHz DDR memory clock on the 512MB of GDDR3.
