    Palit is well aware that we are both unknown in the US and are typically viewed as the inexpensive guy.

    Well, we just started in the US in November so that's to be expected.

    But we are FAR more than just cheap. The cooler, the three phase power, OC from the factory etc. We also want to go beyond what we are doing now. Our ultimate goal is to provide people with what they really want as well as driving what they want to new heights.

    So they decided the best way to get this message out was to find someone that understands overclocking and gaming and LAN parties and the whole scene but ALSO understands the business side of things.

    Apparently that person is me. Believe me, I was as shocked to find this out as anyone. I've been preaching to the manufacturing community to get with the program since 1998. So now that they've given me the chance I see no reason to throw everything I believe in out the window.

    You can find me online EVERY night playing QW:ET as Pa[LIT]. I OC the crap out of everything I can get my hands on. I go to LAN parties as much as possible. I post in forums and I visit www.rlslog.net frequently.

    So I'm just a normal enthusiast that is also a marketing guy at Palit. The coolest thing about Palit is the great things they do with hardware. But the second coolest thing they do is let me run amuck telling the truth. I'm one of the very few marketing guys you can believe.

    Let's try this. The 8500 sucks for gaming. Will it game? Yes. Do you REALLY want to inflict that on yourself? Prolly not. Now if that's all you can afford and you have to choose between using it and not gaming, well, it starts to suck a lot less.

    The 8800Ultra rocks. How many people can afford one? Not many. Do we all want one? Everyone but the ATI fanbois but they secretly use one in the closet. The price of the 8800Ultra sucks. But what can you do? It costs a ton of money to make.

    So, IMO, Palit will succeed partly because I'm out here like a normal freak listening to what everyone wants and then taking that message back to the factory. But that should go both ways as well. The enthusiast community deserves a truthful explanation about what's going on if someone doesn't understand. I simply don't believe there is any reason for Palit and the people who buy video cards can't communicate with one another and make all our lives a little easier.

    The funny thing is this is called marketing. I call it asking people what they want, filtering out the n00bs and then providing it.

    Ya, was going after that link myself. Too much information.

    Basically it is HDMI for a PC monitor. It supports a LOT more bandwidth than anything else you can plug into your monitor. It also has the ability to daisy chain your monitors although I don't know what resolutions or how many monitors are actually supported.

    I've seen demos using 3 monitors but no one would tell me what the resolutions were.

    I can say this. The Palit 8800GT is one of the best cards I have ever owned. No one payed me to say that, it's just the truth. It's been a long time from the last time I could say this is the best card I have ever owned. Think back around x1800XT times, just a few years.

    It's quiet, and I can't believe how quiet it is even with the fan at full blast. Plus it stays cool while staying quiet!!! There is some noise to be honest, but it's very little(I have no side walls on my case) It's running around 52c right now, and with a full load it will run around 70c. That's with an OC http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/mybmn/



    My games are running flawless, besides one Crysis. I play in 1920x1200 so it goes without saying that you need a little power to be able to do that.Which it is playable on Max at that res, just in some spots it's going to go frame, frame, frame.

    While I'm sure those HSFs cool better, they certainly aren't as sexy as the cards full-body plastic casings.

    Hey, I didn't necessarily hate the frog -- just wondered, "Why frogs?" :laugh:

    But, at least it wasn't some sort of furry-ish Fox, that would've been too much.

    I'm digging the heavy-duty coolers that Palit puts on everything, though.

    Yay! Yeah I have to agree that palits are well made cards, generally they are mindful of us enthusiasts by not using the poorly designed reference PCBs on most of their products.

    Done. There's a trip to the factory in China next week so when everyone gets back we're going to do a TPU coupon code exclusively for TPU readers.

    Any suggestions on what we should make the code?
    Kursah, xfire, WarEagleAU and 6 others say thanks.
