Gainward 6800GT GLH

1. Introduction

Gainward PowerPack! Ultra/2400 "Golden Sample" GLH

- Introduction

On October 12th, Gainward announced its latest "Powerpack Ultra/2400" family of graphics cards. This family is based on the 6800GT and 6600GT and is aimed at the 3D gaming enthusiast.

In this review, we will be testing the Gainward PowerPack! Ultra/2400 "Golden Sample" GLH. The Golden sample GLH (Goes Like Hell) cards are based on hand selected 6800GT Nvidia processors and redesigned by Gainward to improve speed flexibility, overall performance and bandwidth. Each card is really overclockable and guaranteed by Gainward to work at the same speed as the 6800 Ultra. This is a card with which you should have no fears overclocking.

The PowerPack! Ultra/2400 family details are summed up in the following table:

- Packaging - Bundle

The card ships in the Gold and Blue theme packaging, seen in the picture below.

Even though the card targets the gaming enthusiast market, the software that is bundled along does not include any games whatsoever. Instead, Gainward provides the user with some useful programs for video playback and authoring.

The bundle consists of among other things, 3 CD-ROM disks. One contains Muvee autoProducer 3 for video editing, the second interVideo's most famous WinDVD 5 and on the third disk you'll find drivers and application software for the card.

Also included in the package is a Quick Start Manual with details and easy instructions on how to install the card on your motherboard and using its utilities (such as EXPERTool).

Of course, the cables for connecting the graphics card with external devices couldn't be missing. A short S-to-Composite cable, two DVI-to-VGA connectors and a dual molex power connector complete the set of bundled accessories.
