It’s been a while since we had an eVGA card in our test labs but today we’ve got their GeForce 6800GT offering to look at. Newegg.com
was kind enough to send us a sample and if you would like to order the card, you can go here
eVGA primarly produces NVIDIA cards and is one of the few companies that have stayed solely manufacturing NVIDIA solutions. The e-GeForce 6800GT
is a one slot GeForce 6800GT card featuring the NV40 chip and 256MB of GDDR3 ram. The card features 16 pipelines and runs at 350MHz core speed and 500MHz memory speed. There’s really no need to get more into the design as the card’s been talked about for a while in many places but if you would like more info you can go here.
There’s nothing different over the reference design here. I would’ve liked to have seen something to distinguish this card from others such as a custom cooling unit but you’ll get plain vanilla card if decide to pick this one up. And because of the reference design, the bracket holds one VGA connector, one DVI connector, and one SVGA output. Power requirements are one molex connector.
eVGA’s bundle’s pretty sparse but features one very good game in Far Cry
. Far Cry
’s one of my favorite games of the year and it’s one that’ll show off your new NVIDIA card. Also in the bundle is a great DVD player in NVDVD
. Featuring great decoding and good CPU usage, NVDVD
’s one of my favorites and I do prefer it over programs such as WinDVD
