Gainward GT 220 hits our lab - 2. The Card

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: 40nm core and DirectX 10.1 support









Among the models featured in Gainward's offer is the BLISS GT220 1024MB DDR3, factory overclocked Geforce GT 220 on the picture below.

The card we see is dubbed GT220 1024M sDDR3 128B CRT DVI HDMI. The GPU runs at 645MHz, shaders at 1403MHz and the memory runs at 790MHz (1580MHz effectively).

The cooler isn't large, but it's still too wide to fit the width of one slot on the motherboard. At a glance we thought that BLISS GT 220 will get pretty loud due to the small fan, but the card ran silent all the way. The fan is mounted on a plastic bracket, located above the aluminum body.

The card comes with a reference configuration - 1024MB of memory combined with 128-bit memory interface. It's worth noting that while 512MB of memory should be enough for core support on the GT 220, Gainward decided to stick to 1024MB. The memory in question is Samsung K4W1G1646E-HC12.

The I/O panel features VGA, HDMI and dual-link DVI outs. The box is small, just like the card, and holds the installation CD and manual.
