Palit GeForce GTX 275 896MB Graphics Card - The Card

We have a look at the GTX 275 from Palit and see if the non-reference cooler can help it stand out from the pack.

The Card

 

Having a look at the card for the first time, we can see that Palit has opted for a new cooler which we mentioned in the introduction. Like most companies, we see that they've opted for a pretty meaty one which hopefully cools the card well.

With the shroud covering most of the card there isn't a whole lot to see; we have two fans that sit in the middle and behind that we have a number of fins along with three heat pipes that help pull the heat away from the core.

Towards the back of the card we find two 6-Pin PCI Express power connectors that are required to power the card. Next to these connectors we also have another little white connector which is used to get sound through the HDMI connector with the help of a loop back cable that is provided in the package.

Closer to the front of the card we have two SLI connectors which gives us the ability to run up to three of these cards together.

In the I/O department we have two Dual-Link DVI connectors along with a single S-Video connector. The top half gives us a number of vents which help let the hot air escape out the back of the card.

 

Specifications

 

As we mentioned, this card isn't part of the Sonic series so it does carry with it the stock clocks which we can see below. The core comes in at 633MHz while the shader clock comes in at 1404MHz.

The 896MB of GDDR3 memory comes in at 1134MHz or 2268MHz DDR, which like the other clocks is at stock speed.
