Preview: The third Geforce 9800 in line

 

Gainward has been kind enough to supply us with their latest graphics card, Geforce 9800 GTX, a card that's only a couple of days old. Bliss 9800GTX-512-TV-Dual DVI is Tri-SLI ready, has Hybrid Power, it’s good for multimedia, but it excels in gaming.

This is a third card from Geforce 9 series, after Geforce 9600GT and Geforce 9800 GX2. It uses the G92 graphics chip and specification-wise resembles Geforce 8800GTS, although it has higher speeds. The memory runs at 1100MHz (2200MHz effectively), whereas the core runs at 675MHz and the Shaders at 1688MHz.

We managed to overclock the core up to 808MHz and the Shaders followed – they ran at 2020MHz. The memory in question is Samsung K4J52324QE-BJ08, and we managed to overclock it to 1215MHz (2430MHz effectively). This is the fastest GDDR3 memory that we've seen on graphics cards so far, and the results prove that.

Crysis instantly benefits after a 19% overclock of the core, and the results increased by up to 22%. That is, of course, on the highest resolutions, but it's still not enough for pleasant gaming.
