The Card

 

Opening the box up and pulling the card out, we notice that the card looks very similar to most mid-range Palit cards with the big gold / orange cooler taking up most of the card.

Around the heatsink we can see another plate that goes over the memory and another heatsink towards the back of the card that keeps some of the other warmer components cooler.

Like the GIGABYTE 9800 GT, we have a single PCI Express power connector towards the back of the card and across the top a single PCI Express connector. While it was rumored that the 9800 GT would support Tri-SLI, we can see the fact that we only have a single SLI connector here, meaning it's not possible.

Over in the I/O department we can see our two Dual Link DVI connectors and single TV-Out port. We can also see that while the card does take up two slots, it uses a larger bracket to help exhaust some of the hot air out of the case instead of letting it float around inside.

 

Specifications

 

As we've already mentioned a few times, the Sonic model is of course overclocked. The core has gone from 600MHz to 650MHz, shader from 1500MHz to 1625MHz and the 512MB of GDDR3 goes from 1800MHz DDR to 1900MHz DDR.
