This was extremely disappointing as the GeForce GT was set to be the number one choice for affordable gaming.

The GeForce GT on the other hand did not get the attention of the GT upon launch and there did not seem to be such a rush to get this product to the masses. Recently I heard a rumor that ATI will ship their next generation graphics cards without a reference cooler.

In fact, Albatron has created a nice little GeForce GT option focusing purely on the graphics card itself. 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. The strategy makes sense, but at times I wonder if the quick sales are worth tarnishing the reputation of a manufacturer such as ASUS. 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.

mxi Of course, now there is a little bit of diversity in the GT range as big name manufacturers such as ASUS and Gigabyte are onto their second or third revision. As a result, it has been far 73000gt joyful testing these cheaper low-end graphics cards, as each and every one seems to be a little different. However, it was Albatron that impressed me the most, with their very serious heatsink design that does bare a remarkable resemblance to that of ASUS’ Silent coolers.

Not one manufacturer went with anything other than the plain and 730gt reference cooling solution, which I might add was extremely noisy.

Mai end result is an impressive-looking passive heatsink that keeps the GPU core and memory cool at all times. Join thousands of tech enthusiasts and participate.

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. However given such an overclock, performance can be boosted dramatically.

Making matters worse, almost all of them were built on the same plain old green PCB.
