Palit GeForce 9800 GT Sonic 512MB


NVIDIA has just launched the new 9800 GT which is basically the old 8800 GT. So, they haven't really launched a new product, rather, a new name. The renaming of cards is becoming a bit of a pain in the ass, but really there isn't a whole lot we can do about it. The best thing we can do is help keep people educated so they don't upgrade from an 8800 GT to a 9800 GT or an 8800 GS to a 9600 GSO.

The thing is, though, these new cards come with new pricing which tends to be lower than their original counterpart, which means that they become more competitive than ever and that's something we're not going to complain about.

Palit have today decided to mix it up a bit by adding their own cooler to the card along with overclocking the core, shader and memory clock. We'll check out the package before we have a closer look at the card and the specs that Palit have gone for today.
