Default Marvelous performance 3D graphic card–ELSA 8800GT 512MB review

NVIDIA’s high-end graphic card which hits in 2007 has simultaneously opened
the DX10 into a new era: 8800Ultra, 8800GTX and 8800GTS three models.
The 8800 Ultra has the highest performance, but the price also reaches as high as about 600 US Dollar.

The best selling of these three probably is the 8800GTS 320MB,
most of the manufactures are pricing around USD$300,
plus the 8800GTS also have the above two models most likely performance,
but the price has actually saved one half.

Since 8800 series released into the market, the 8800 series always remain a problem...
There is a large scales increased performance of 8800 than the previous model,
but using 90nm, its power consumption and the high temperature,
really let the consumers somewhat be unable to endure.

The new release model of 8800 series from NVIDIA, named as 8800GT,
is using 65nm process. The streaming processor surmounts 8800GTS and is closer to 8800GTX.
Also, the price is slightly lowered than 8800GTS 320MB.

Here comes the lead -ELSA 8800GT 512MB. At current time,
it can only see the reference design in the market.
The only difference between each manufactures is the sticker - make the issue in the outward appearance.


Due to the 65nm processing, the size of 8800GT is obviously smaller.
Especially the cooling fan on it is much smaller




Duo DVI output and one TV-out connector


Same as 8800GTS, it only needs one 6PIN to provide the power.


Open up the cooling fan to check 8800GT


Right half materials


The code number is the G92 chip
Memory uses Qimonda HYB18H512321BP-10


Bottom side of the cooling fan
Even though the radiating surface is slightly small but the overall quality is not bad at all.


CPU:INTEL Core 2 Extreme QX6800
MB: DFI LanParty DK P35
DRAM:CORSAIR Dominator TWIN2X2048-8888C4DF
VGA:ELSA 8800GT 512MB

The testing scores are already similar as 8800GTX,
some of the test results even better than 8800GTX.

The temperature
VGA overclocking:
The standby temperature is 58℃ with t he room temperature is 26℃.


After running 3DMARK 2005, temperature is 72℃


Even though the temperature aspect does not calculate lowly,
but with often surpasses 80℃’s 90nm GTX/Ultra,
the 8800GT radiation volume only half of it.
The temperature has certain degrees reducing but the scope certainly is not very big

When the system starts instantaneous,
the cooling fan into full speed condition, it causes some of the noise.
But it immediately reduces the temperature to the controls condition.
No matter runs under the 3D or overclocking condition,
the 8800GT’s noise is all suitable low, nearly running without any sounds

Concluded above performance testing result,
the 8800GT is already close to the NVIDIA’s highest level’s graphic cards.
In many games or testing software, the performance is outstanding,
even running under the 4XAA. It can remain high speed. Plus the 65nm,
it is efficiently reduce the power consumption and the size of the card.
There is no double that the 8800GT will take over the previous version of 8800GTS in the middle to high end market.

Recently I am preparing my midterm test.
Only make a simple test of the 8800GT major performance,
next week if the time is available, the DX10 related testing report will come out after.

The following update testing
Super overclocking Notebook-MSI GX600
