The Card

With the package out of the way, it's time to move onto the card itself. It doesn't come as any real surprise that BFG has opted to use the reference cooler from NVIDIA.

BFG has of course included a sticker on the card along with making note that the card is the OCX model of the 9800 GTX.

Of course, following the reference design we do have the standard two 6-Pin PCI Express connectors located towards the back of the card, while we have two SLI connectors across the top. We also have a little port next to the SLI connectors which is for the included loop back cable that lets you get sound though the HDMI connector.

Finally we have the I/O department which comprises two dual link DVI connectors and a single TV-Out port. Like all 9800 GTXs, the BFG is of course a dual slot card.

Specifications

At stock speeds the 9800 GTX comes with a 675MHz core, 1688 MHz shader and 2200MHz DDR memory clock on the 512MB of GDDR3. The BFG comes in with a 755MHz core, 1890MHz shader, and 2300MHz DDR memory clock. This is a very nice increase which should yield some decent performance gains.
