Sorry for the lack of articles, but the clubhouse WAS formed today. Being more relevant, members of the HD3k clubhouse and the G80; you are in one community and remember that. All because I have made another clubhouse (and went to the darkside) does not mean I'm abandoning anything. Basically, the point of both clubhouses is to provide TECH SUPPORT. Not a fanclub, even if they both do and will do that.

=================================
NV1. Recommended Purchases from G8x/G9x Family
=================================

These are GPUs that are recommended for purchase for each price range. Please note that some are manufacturer, and model specific. Reasons will be explained. Basically the reasoning behind these choices is simple, practicality, durability and the value of the GPU itself.

Out of the 8800GT family

The 8800 family is filled with variations with many Manufacturers making customized designs of the 8800GT, first off we have the 8800GT 512MB. This is the IDEAL 8800GT, if you are counting value, and performance altogether.

The 8800GT 256MB suffers from inferior performance (approx +20%~ less compared to the 8800GT 512MB) due to the lack of framebuffer, which is a major issue with it. There is one advantage, which is price. However as performance suffers heavily with the reduced framebuffer on newer games it isn't a good choice.

The 8800GT 1GB, from PALIT and ASUS, while 1GB sounds like a nice number, it isn't necessarily useful. Practically, the 8800GT 1GB's extra load of framebuffer is extremely redundant. With less than half of the framebuffer utilised for all the games. Benchmarks also show that the performance does NOT increase at all with the redundant framebuffer-even in Crysis.

The 8800GT 512MB is the best option. Why? Price, performance value.

One problem. The reference 8800GT's phase design is very poorly designed. With only 1 Phase for the memory, and two phases for the Vcore. The main problem is that the Vcore phase's capacitors , chokes, MOSFETs, generally have a lot to handle. If we remove all the reference designs, we are left with two options.

The Palit 8800GT 512MB Sonic, or the Gigabyte 8800GT 512MB Ultra Durable 2 (GV-NX88T512HP)

The Palit 8800GT 512MB Sonic

Gigabyte GV-NX88T512HP


Lets elaborate on the features of both cards shall we? Both cards sport a 3 Phase power design for the Vcore, as opposed to two. This does mean indeed that the phases will run cooler. However the Gigabyte edges out a tiny bit in this aspect with the components used in comparison. Both GPUs use non-reference cooling, which are of the same calibre (expect load temps of around 70*C~60*C), which is far superior than the stock reference (80*C + normally). Both cards furthermore, come pre-overclocked, which is a nice addition to their value.

Now to the differences, the Gigabyte 8800GT has one major advantage, as seen in the image, the 8800GT has a shorter PCB, around 1.5 Inches shorter. This means it is far more HTPC friendly compared to the Palit and other 8800GTs. The Gigabyte has one rather unique feature, which is a power saving feature that is offered on their newer E series motherboards. Basically operating on the same principle, it cuts down power usage and temperatures by a small amount during Idle. Note that software is required for this feature to work however, which is the GAMER H.U.D. The gamer H.U.D allows for software voltage control, BIOS modding not needed which is convenient. However the max voltage that the card can do with this tool is 1.2v-and at that point you would consider cooling the Vcore phases. One major letdown is the omission of memory cooling, thus the card is limited at 1840 MHz, however by adding small heatsinks, such as the Zalman BGA heatsinks, the card will easily do 2.0GHz.

UPDATE: Later models come with Samsung memory, which is rated at 2.0Ghz, moreover compared to the Quimonda, Samsung’s memory is known to run cooler, however not necessarily clock better.

However on the other hand, the Palit has HDMI, which is slowly becoming needed for high end Flat screen TVs. The Palit DOESN’T have exposed memory; its cooled, so that’s one investment that doesn’t need to be made, like the gigabyte. There is a large set of MOSFETs, and those are cooled with a large heatsink. (However please note, regardless of that at 1.2v+ the phases will require active cooling to remain stable). Unlike the Gigabyte, it will still require flashing to have any form of voltage control, which is a minor problem. The large proprietary heatsink, is somewhat edged out by the VF830Alcu, but nonetheless still superior to the reference design. In this case memory clocks do not suffer thanks to the memory cooling. Overall, this card is warmer.

Out of the both of these GPUs, it comes down to your needs. The Gigabyte would be better if you worry about the durability and the size of the card, as well as the power saving, while the Palit would be better suited for when HDMI is needed in a high performance PC. It also boils down to the price, but take note of the advantages of each GPU, note that performance is almost the same with both. Heres a summary:

Gigabyte 8800GT
++Ultra Durable 2 3 Phase
+Pre OC’ed
+Smaller PCB
+Aftermarket Zalman VF830
+GAMER HUD
-1.2v max in gamer HUD
-A bit more expensive than ref
-No memory cooling.

PALIT 8800GT
++HDMI
+Three phase
+Pre OC’ed
+Proprietary Aluminium flower fansink
+Memory cooling
+Similarly priced as reference design.
-MOSFET cooling inadequate; MOSFETs run too hot
-Longer than Gigabyte 8800GT (not really a con)

9800GTX/8800GTS 512MB
When the 9800GTX was released, it was basically an overpriced 8800GTS 512MB with more power phases. However now with the considerable price drops that have evened the prices of both GPUs, it will be up to the end user to buy whichever he/her prefers.

The 9800GTX has the advantage of having more power phases, but please note performance wise its identical to the 8800GTS 512MB. The more power phases will in turn make the card run cooler overall, however draw slightly more power. The PCB is also longer; this may be a problem to some who have a small chassis. With the extra power phases Nvidia decided to chuck in another 6 pin header; probably to give the product an impression it is a high end product.

The 8800GTS 512MB isn't that long but sports two times less power phases, it costs moreover around $10~$20 USD less, or in some cases the same price as the 9800GTX. It doesn't have the extra power connector moreover (which isn't needed). Finally one of the major advantages is the smaller, but superior cooler. You may ask why? Because the 8800GTS 512MB's cooler is silent, in contrast to the 9800GTX's. The 9800GTX's is just a large fin array, with a copper base, with a fast and moderately audible fan, while the 8800GTS 512MB sports a triple heatpipe cooler with a fan that remains quiet; the results say that the 8800GTS 512MB runs cooler.

In my opinion, go for whichever is cheaper at your retailer.

Latest GT200 rumours
As of late, none of the rumours from various sources seem to be remotely reliable to base a judgement on the GT200's performance. VR Zone, has posted news but it is rather questionable as to how they are getting their information. So far the site that usually pumps out pre-release info, Fudzilla has only have info about the competitor; the RV770, this does suggest that the rumours are to be taken with a grain of salt as even Fudzilla aren't talking about it yet.

Personal comment: I have the older 8800GT with the VF700ALCU installed by the way. Going to rip it off to install an AcceleroS1. The 8800GT Diagnosed one of my PCI-E 6 Pin connectors were faulty... used my remaining PCI-E 6 pin connector. At first I thought the 8800GT was dead, but then I tested it on my "old" PC. Oh well lol, one dead PCI-E connector. VF700ALCU was barely satisfactory, 72*C Load and 50*C Idle, the AcceleroS1 does way better, passively without any noise. Same thing happened on my X1950PRO... two AcceleroS1s :laugh

Personal Comment: I have the 1GB Palit Sonic. It loads to 59C with my OC (760/1902/1050 gpu/shader/mem), logged by Rivatuner. The cooler really is pretty good. Certainly better than the reference cooler. It's no S1 or vf1000, but it gets the job done.

Tkpenalty's Comment: 59*C is a very good temperature, good 8800 Imho.

Sonic right? Very nice then, 51*C :S... 51*C Sounds more like a temperature after you ctrl + tab. I'd use something such as ATi Tool to get the temps, run "scan for artifacts" and leave it for 5 minutes. Then you'll get the load temps.

$329? Where did you get that? :twitch:. HD3870 is supposed to be cheaper, but nice find nonetheless! (I live in Australia too). Do you live in brisbane or something? Because in sydney, only "Generic (i.e. bad warranty)", 8800GTs have that kind of pricing.

EDIT: Sunshine Coast... damn you guys are lucky up there. Get everything for almost as cheap as in the US :twitch:

My Palit also looks quite a bit different than the pic you have up of it.

The Gigabyte is not a 4 phase design. Number of chokes does not equal number of phases. It's still a 3 phase design, as listed on their website.

With that said, can I join? :D

EDIT: Closeups of my card. With and without heatsinks. (But left the ram heatspreaders on.)

Hi I got it from PCmeal they have them on ebay ,,though they have them at$349 now the card comes with a program called vdo tool you can you can monitor fan speed temp etc ,you can manually set the fan speed if you want
i will have a look on ebay and post the link think they still have a few more ,it was a coin toss up as to wether to get the 8800 or the 3870
heres the link to ebay they are a great to deal with

Hmmm, GB doesn't list the number of phases on their site anymore. Maybe I was thinking of a press release? Either way tk, I did find out that your card isn't just the GV-NX88T512HP, it's the GV-NX88T512HP Rev. 1.0, thus explaining the different cooling on yours.

Here's the link to the picture on GB's site: http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/FileList/Image/vga_productimage_gv-nx88t512hp_rev.1.0_big.jpg
Yeah that was the older revision which was in the pic in that comparison thread. I got the 1.0 Revision at the moment. Not the older revision. Its also got the extra voltage control chip installed which means its pretty handy. Yes that Palit 8800GT looks different compared to the one (thanks for the pics lol).

Well, I'm somewhat confused at the moment. Some places say four phase while others say three. With six chokes in a line, it can be logical to say, two for memory four for vcore... OR, you could assume in your case, one choke for Memory and three chokes for vcore, with the rest for some other thing.

Yeah... On the older revision there was one less choke (at top) and the PCB was laid out somewhat differently.

Looks Like i'll need to re-judge the choice between each card. On a sidenote though, that memory heatplate looks pretty cool though. Your revision of the palit is designed somewhat better than the one in the pic.

You're lucky you are getting it from EVGA, when that 9800 series comes out, (9800GT?) you might be able to participate in the upgrade program...and their warranty is just awesome.
