Review: Evga GeForce 9800 GTX

Liquid enjoy DirectX10 title is with the EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX + this graphics card a real hunk. In the Beefy housing works also a real high-end graphics chip, the EVGANvidia GeForce 9800 GTX in the current + “-version.” To learn what made the map in the practice test, in this report. Here is the graphic chip NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX in the current + “-version.” The big difference between GeForce 9800 GTX-, and GeForce 9800 GTX +-chips is the manufacturing process: the plus version is manufactured in 55 nm process, the circuits of its predecessor are 65 nm size. The new version, higher clock speeds for the graphics chip (740 instead of 675 MHz) and the graphics memory (1836 instead of 1688 MHz) are possible. 3D performance: Overclocking, which was made possible by the redesign of the chips, had a barely noticeable on the 3D performance in the benchmarks (10 percent) and in the practice tests (maximum 5%).

No matter whether with or without + “this graphics chip brings rich mid-range performance and accelerated every game in the test on” smooth frame rates at each image quality up to the resolution 1600 x 1200 pixels. The 3D world in conflict and company of heroes were running at 1600 x 1200 resolution and high image quality in DirectX 10 mode with 27 or 30 images per second. Only the 3D-Kracher Crysis ran at the highest image quality liquid only up to supports 1280 resolution. Handling: The graphics card made in the reference design has two 6-pin power connectors, two SLI interface and an audio connection, looping through to the sound to the DVI connectors. The thick fan / cooling body combination worked like in the previous very quietly.

Conclusion: Nice and quiet working graphics card with much force for all current 3D games and reserves for the upcoming title. In regard to other models in the price class, the price is up to 200 euro”quite high, but in relation to the performance seen quite adequately. The exact technical specifications click here.
