Palit GeForce 8800 GT Super+1GB Review

@ 2008/01/03
With the GeForce 8800 GT proving wildly popular with consumers, it was only a matter of time before the one-upmanship among card manufacturers spread to this GPU. First out of the gate was ASUS, announcing the world’s first GeForce 8800 GT card with 1GB of memory. In the days following ASUS’ announcement, several other NVIDIA board partners announced their own 1GB GeForce 8800 GT SKUs, but to date none of these cards have made it to the shelves of US retailers.

Then, in the final days of 2007 just a week ahead of Christmas, we received word from Palit Multimedia that their GeForce 8800 GT 1GB cards had just arrived and would be shipping from their warehouse to retailers (As of this article’s publication, TigerDirect has the 1GB card in stock priced at $349, while NCIX carries it for $295.16).

it takes 2560x1600 and 4xAA/16xAF to show any performance improvement for the 1gb version, and at that resolution FPS are too low to enjoy the game with the 8800 GT GPU.

As usual, NVIDIA reference amount of memory is sufficient.
