2. A closer look

The largest part of the card's surface is occupied by the large heatsink bearing the manufacturer's name. The cooling system is designed by Arctic Cooling and is known as the NV Silencer. In another review we did featuring the 7800GTX, we noticed that the temperatures are increased in comparison with the previous NVidia 6800 chipset, over 50°C in idle state and the need for a more efficient cooling system is highly necessary.

As you can see, the ASUS N7800GTX TOP is SLI enabled, which means that with a second card, it can operate in SLI mode offering even higher performance.

Underneath the cooler and the metal plate, there is a set of 8 modules of 32MB GDD3 memory, resulting in 256MB capacity. There is an aluminium cooling system for the memory chipsets on both sides, something much more efficient for thermal dissipation.

The picture below demonstrates the "heart" of the card, the 0.11 micron G70 GPU:


The ASUS N7800 GTX TOP provides dual DVI-I connections.

Now lets move to the next page covering in detail our graphics card's testbed.
