Palit Unveils Own Designed GeForce 8800 GT With 3-phase Power

Palit Microsystems is launching today an own designed GeForce 8800 GT based graphics card that does not follow NVIDIA's reference design. Palit's GeForce 8800 GT is also different from its competitors as it comes with non stock GPU cooling solution and 3-phase power supply system that should improve overclocking. Other specifications include the standard GeForce 8800 GT 112 stream processors, 512MB GDDR3 memory with 256-bit memory interface, 600MHz core speed, 1800MHz memory clock and PCI Express 2.0 support.

Ah yes, Palit, always been good to me.

I'm a Palit fanboy, yet can such a thing exist???


And this, while not the BEST cooling solution, might help put some people's minds at ease, given there's no liquid blocks for the GTs yet.

Didn't one of the 8800gt reviews show the bolt pattern to be identical to the 7900 series?
I'm at work so I don't have time atm to search for it...

Looks much better than the single slot standard version to me.

Tung, yes it looks that way, and I think some people are going to give it a whirl, but I didn't want to be one of the first to find out the hard way if it doesn't :)

Nice to have theoretically improved overclocking potential, but why, in the first non-reference (high-end) design for ages, did they choose 'nvidia reference' green, of all colours?

Cause that's what parts are supposed to be like silly!

Don't you know special colored boards are just for posers?
How much money does the black pearl models rake in on aesthetics alone? :)

Well that green really isn't an Nvidia thing... almost all PCBs on anything have been green.

That cooler resembles a mini thermal take blue orb 2 cooler.
