Review: Overclocking potential is there


EVGA is one of the few partners that got the Geforce 9800 GX2 cards for launch. Sanjin already wrote a lot about what is under the hood but let me go into a few more details.

Image

Geforce 9800 GX2 or D8E (sometimes even referred as D9E) has two G92 chips inside and both chips are working at 600MHz. Each chip addresses 512MB of GDDR3 memory, making the total amount of memory 1024MB.

Image

The card has two PCBs and it's caged in a black, very nice looking metal cage. The cooler with a fan is placed between two PCBs and the chips are covered by a huge copper chunk. Surprisingly, the chips do not really get that hot, while the case of the card tends to be quite hot after some hours of gaming.

Image

G92 is the first Nvidia chip to have a decent Video engine that can cope with both H.264 and VC-1.

The bottom line is that the card can take it. EVGA’s card also works at 600MHz core and 2000MHZ GDDR3 memory, but naturally, it can be overclocked.
