Asus 8800GTS 512 Top

1. Features. specs, package

The Nvidia 8800 series was a big success for Nvidia. The recent update of the G92 GPU bring us the GeForce 8800 GTS with 512 MB of memory that promises high performance at an affordable price. The prices of the new cards ranging from $299 to $349 and their most noticeable update is the support for the new PCI Express 2.0 and the inclusion of the Nvidia's second-generation PureVideo HD engine.

Asus has prepared an enhanced version based on the 8800GTS series with increased core/shaders/memory clocks. In short the AsusEN8800GTS 512 Top is 7% faster than a generic GeForce 8800GTS 512M and supports ASUS's Smart Doctor: Shader Clock overclocking and intelligent hardware protection tool and ASUS's Gamer OSD.

- Retail package

The Asus EN8800GTS Top comes with a relatively small retail package, also met in many other Asus graphics cards. The "7% Faster" logo looks teasing to all those overclocking enthusiasts.

Inside the box, everything is well organized.

We can find a DVI to D-Sub adaptor, an HDTV-out cable and a Power cable. There is also an optical disc with drivers and utilities. Don't expect to find any retail game :)

The Asus EN8800GTS Top uses  Nvidia's reference cooling solution with a dual slot design. The length of the board is 23cm posing some possible issues with crammed cases.

A 6-pin power connector should be used in order to properly power up the graphics card.

The GPU core runs at 740MHz, memory is clocked at 1035MHz while the Shader clock is set at 1800MHz. Hopefully this baby will further overclock as we will find out later in the tests. Below there are are several screenshots from GPU-Z and Everest Ultimate Edition.
