Nvidia 8800GT

3. XFX 8800GT Alpha Dog Edition

XFX is a well known Nvidia partner that puts the emphasis in manufacturing extreme products. In other words, it offers products with greater performance than other manufacturers. The XFX 8800GT Alpha Dog Edition comes with 512MB of memory, a core clock of 670MHz and a memory frequency of 1.950GHz, which is higher than the "generic" 8800GT card. The retail package is, as always, impressive and unique. Unfortunately, we can't give you a retail price at the time this review is being written since it may change by the time the product hits the market...

The XFX 8800GT Alpha Dog Edition comes bundled with Company Of Heroes RTS full game. Everything is well packaged

We found the XFX retail package to be slightly more complete than that of the Inno3D, mainly because it includes the extra DVI-D adapter and the doorknob hanger "I'm Gaming Do Not Disturb" :-):

As with the Inno3D, the XFX 8800GT Alpha Dog Edition follows the Nvidia reference design with a different external shell, in order to distinguish it from other 8800GT cards. The graphics card is 23cm in length so as with the Inno3D card, be careful with crammed cases.


SLI is possible with an extra XFX 8800GT Alpha Dog Edition...

After installing the graphics card, we can take a look at its main features and specifications. The CPU core runs at 670MHz, that's 20MHz higher than Inno3D 8800GT, while the memory clock is also higher by 20MHz than Inno3D's 8800GT card at 975MHz. We don't know if the extra 20MHz will give a noticable performance boost, this will be seen later on, in our gaming tests....
