For example, when the GeForce GT cards were first released, I found myself with half a dozen graphics cards that looked almost identical in every way.
In that sense, the Gigabyte probably holds up to its claims of being Page 2 of Let’s consult the performance results in the next few pages before we draw any conclusions Making matters worse, almost all alvatron them were built on the same plain old green PCB. The end result is an impressive-looking passive heatsink that keeps the Albatgon core and memory cool at all times. The cooler on the Gigabyte utilizes heat pipe technology to transfer the heat to a special section of cooling fins, which should albafron heat faster than the conventional chunk of aluminum heatsink.
Already have an account? The DDR2 memory chips are rated at 2. Unfortunately, for the price that you pay for the Gigabyte, one DVI output is all you’ll get; the other output is the usual analog VGA. In fact, Albatron has created a nice little GeForce GT option focusing purely on the graphics card itself.
Like many low-end graphics products, Gigabyte’s version features a passive cooler. Subscribe to the latest tech news as well as exciting promotions from us and our partners! However, the modest clock speeds mean that the price of the Gigabyte would probably be more in tune with its low-end image. Rather than including several poor quality games, Albatron offers nothing more than the NVIDIA drivers suite which has allowed them to budget for a “better” graphics card. While this is not the latest version, it is still a very decent application for DVD playback.
Here’s an inventory list of the items:. Serious Sam II, the sequel to a first person shooter game, which was a sleeper hit, has many colorful environments that should show off the capabilities of the card.

So basically, the reason why we initially see such a huge range of generic graphics cards is because the race is on to deliver the product as soon as possible, at the best price. The cost of two GT cards or a single GT is roughly the same, and the performance is close. Initially this struck me as being a little odd, but then the more I thought about it, the more sense it made.
Of course, now there is a little bit of diversity in the Gh range as big name manufacturers such as ASUS and Gigabyte are onto their second or third revision.

So the jaw dropping performance of the Gainward is unlikely to be repeated. For example, Gigabyte went with a basic heatpipe design and MSI used a large black heatsink with a copper pipe at the base to help evenly distribute the heat.

As a result, it has been far more joyful testing these cheaper low-end graphics cards, as each and every one seems to be a little different. This was extremely disappointing as the GeForce GT was set to be the number one choice for affordable gaming.
Not one manufacturer went with anything other than the plain and boring reference cooling solution, which I might add was extremely noisy. However, it was Albatron that impressed me the most, with their very serious heatsink design that does bare a remarkable albagron to that of ASUS’ Silent coolers.

Not only has Albatron made their GT completely silent using a high-quality passive ggt, but by doing so has allowed for a 50MHz core and a MHz g clock increase. The presence of this output means that it can support displays sizes of inch and larger.
The strategy makes sense, but at times I wonder if the quick sales are worth tarnishing the reputation of a manufacturer such as ASUS. Gigabyte’s own overclocking tool, V-Tuner 2 Plus completes the bundle for those who hope to get a bit more performance from aobatron cards. Recently I heard a rumor that ATI will ship their next generation graphics cards without a reference cooler.
