, a division of Pine technologies, offered us the chance to review one of their brand new products, of course we couldn't decline the offer. Actually this is the very first review of an XFX product, and we at Madshrimps are very proud today to present you the on September 6th released graphics card from nVidia, the 7900GS.
Founded in 1989, PINE Technology designs, develops, manufactures and distributes high-quality digital audio and video devices as well as computer peripherals. PINE also distributes branded computer and communications products. XFX is a division of Pine, and is a so called Authorized Board Partner
of Nvidia. XFX has also been a very quick launch partner lately: it had the very first 7900GS cards available here in Belgium, and repeated that again this week with the 7950GT.The XFX bundle
The card we received from XFX came with a standard, but complete bundle.
Besides the card, the following items were found inside the box :Driver CD
DVI -> VGA adapter
PCIe -> standard molex adapter
The bundle provided by XFX for their 7900GS
As you see, all the necessary items are present, but no more than that. We do find an overclock tool on the driver cd, a version of Acrobat Reader and 4 game demos. A full game is noteworthy absent, and is a slight drawback. For me personally, included games have never been an incentive to buy, but for you this might be different.
Now what's the difference between 7900 GT and GS ? >>>
