XFX launches 8800 GT Alpha Dog edition

Non-reference design


XFX has announced yet another card in its 8800 GT series. This time it's a representative of its Alpha Dog series. The card comes with 512MB of GDDR3 memory. The core clock has been raised to 625MHz, while the temperature has gone down a bit, 8 degrees lower to be precise.

XFX's new 8800 GT Alpha Dog edition uses a black PCB with a so called "aluminum stress bar," which should provide better stability for the PCB. XFX's new 8800GT also uses a fan that is bigger in diameter. That bigger fan is the main reason why the temperature is 8 degrees lower under load. Unfortunately, the Shader and memory clock remained at reference values, 1800MHz for memory and 1600MHz for the Shaders.

It is good to see that partners are starting to make non reference 8800 GT cards; now all we have to do is wait for Nvidia to resolve the availability issue.
