We've always been a fan of the GTX 275; there's really no reason not to like it and while it's nothing more than a rebranded model which can be confusing to some, the card does exactly what we want, offers good performance and sits at a good price point.
Today we're going to be checking out a GTX 275 from Palit and while it doesn't carry the Sonic naming scheme which tends to peak our interest more, it is still unique in the cooling department.
This really is the better side to improve upon when it comes to releasing a card, as overclocking can be done yourself and you don't have to worry about voiding the warranty. While you can replace the cooler on a graphics card without too much drama, you do instantly void your warranty which is something people want to avoid.
Let's take the time to have a quick look at the package Palit has put together before we have a closer look at the card. We'll then check out how the performance is with their version of the GTX 275.
