The Package








It doesn't come as much of a surprise that there's really nothing going on in the package area of the product.


Video Card


Looking at the card you quickly discover it's like the package with not a whole lot going on. We can see Galaxy is using quite a large cooler that takes up majority of the card. It's overall pretty plain with just a sticker on the fan that gives us the brand and their URL.




As for extra connectors there's really nothing and being a low-end card there's no power connector. We also see that there isn't an SLI connector on the PCB.




In the I/O department we can see we've got a HDMI connector, VGA connector and a Dual-Link DVI connector which was surprising as we tend to find that most low-end cards include only a Single-Link DVI connector.




Coming in the low-end segment the specifications aren't anything too fancy, looking on the NVIDIA website the GT 220 is actually listed due to the fact that it's been an OEM model for a while being seen in computers from HP, Dell and those other PC manufactures.


On the NVIDIA website the core is shown as coming in at 615MHz while the 1GB of GDDR3 memory carries with it a 790MHz or 1580MHz DDR and we can also see the default speed for the shader clock is 1335MHz.


The card from Galaxy we've got comes in at 660MHz on the core and 800MHz or 1600MHz DDR on the 1GB of GDDR3 memory while the shader also comes in higher at 1436MHz.




Some other big features included in the model are the 40nm core, a 128-bit memory bus along with DirectX 10.1, PhysX, CUDA and a number of other technologies.
