It's nice to see that it hasn't taken Galaxy long to ramp up the GTX 275 in both the looks and clocks department. It's also excellent to see that the cooler they use isn't just there for looks; it does a fantastic job of keeping temps down while giving us even less noise.
As usual, all this comes at a cost and again it's at a cost that is higher than the HD 4890. This can be pretty easily justified, however, with the extra performance on offer. If that wasn't enough already, the big drop in noise and temperature should entice you that bit more to seal the deal.
Galaxy have done a really good job with this card; the clocks have been rounded off to a more even number and while the performance jump isn't huge, it's consistently present which is what we like to see. And we're also finding that at those times where we're only a smidgen away from that 30 FPS minimum, we're either there now or right next to it.
While the package doesn't consist of any games, we've got Galaxy's own overclocking software in the event you want to ramp the clocks up even higher along with all the standard cables we need.
What makes the card no doubt stand out from the rest, however, is the cooler and the performance that it offers. Just to keep it fresh, though, Galaxy have gone that little bit further and given us a native HDMI port on the I/O side of things. If you're looking for a GTX 275 that's going to stand out from the pack, this is one well worth looking at.
