When you open up the package and see the Palit 7900GT Sonic, you have to wipe your eyes to make sure that it's actually an nVidia graphics card you're looking at. Seeing the nVidia logo on a red PCB feels a little weird at first.
You also notice that Palit aren't using a standard heatsink fan found on normal 7900GT graphics cards. This is always a good option when it comes to overclocked cards. Something else that we haven't seen in a while is memory sinks. A lot of cards we see these days either have the fan covering everything including the memory or leaving the memory bare. Memory sinks aren't really necessary due to DDR3 temperature being quite placid but it doesn't go astray and it is definitely a solid inclusion.
Moving over to the back of the card we can see that the air gets pushed over one set of memory sinks but the other set doesn't get touched. We can also see the PCI Express connector on the back of the card.
At the top of the card we find the SLI connector. As we saw on the back of the box the 7900GT Sonic 512MB from Palit is completely SLI compliant and we have a second card, so we are going to see what two 7900GT 512MB cards will do.
Turning the card over we can see the bracket that holds the heatsink fan in place and that's about all. Even though 512MB of memory is on the card it is all on the front of the card.
Moving to the final side of the card we see two funky colored DVI connectors and the TV out port. We can also see that the card uses a dual slot solution. While you would be able to fit another card directly next to it because the 7900GT card does get warm, it wouldn't be recommended, which is why Palit chose to make it a "Dual Slot" card.
While the Palit 512MB does come with some extra memory it also comes overclocked. The default clock speeds on the core of the 7900GT is 450MHz, the Palit 512MB 7900GT Sonic comes at 550MHz. The memory however is still clocked at the standard 1320MHz DDR.
