PNY XLR8 GeForce 9800 GX2 1GB Review

The latest trend in enthusiast graphics card is to produce a hot mainstream card, then double up for some multi-GPU goodness. ATI did it with the Radeon HD 3870 X2 and NVIDIA has followed up with a GeForce 9800 GX dual-GPU card of their own. The PNY model offers a great look at the technology and provides a serious dual-GPU performer for the enthusiast market.

Gigabyte Radeon HD 3870 512MB Review

The Radeon HD 3870 512MB is positioned as ATI's answer to the mainstream performance question, and for the most part, it has done extremely well. After introducing a standard reference design, Gigabyte has put its own spin on the Radeon HD 3870, complete with a Zalman GPU cooler and Ultra Durable 2 design. Check out the review to see how it did in our performance and overclocking tests.

ASUS EN8800GT TOP 512MB Review

The 65nm GeForce 8800 GT was designed as an alternative to the mainstream GeForce 8600 GTS and high-end GeForce 8800 GTS models, but companies like ASUS decided to close the gap even further. Using custom designed, pre-overclocked cards like the EN8800GT TOP 512MB, ASUS has helped blur the lines between the mainstream and high-end markets.

Gigabyte GeForce 8800 GT 512MB Review

The 65nm GeForce 8800 GT was designed to bridge the gap between the mainstream GeForce 8600 GTS and high-end GeForce 8800 GTS models, but Gigabyte thought it could go one better. Their latest GeForce 8800 GT 512MB card features a custom design, complete with Zalman cooler and higher clock speeds, which all add up to a very interesting high-end graphics card.

PNY XLR8 GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB Review

The 65nm GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) is a powerhouse GPU, reigned in slightly by its 256-bit memory architecture, but still representing one of the top high-end gaming cards you can buy. The PNY XLR8 GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB offers a very nice implementation of this technology, so check our review to see how it fares in terms of benchmark testing, overclocking and real-world usage.

Sapphire HD 3850 Ultimate 512MB Review

The Radeon HD 3850 is one of the top mainstream graphics processors you can buy, but Sapphire has given it the "Ultimate Edition" makeover, using an innovative heatpipe/heatsink design for silent operation. Check our review to see how it fares in terms of benchmark testing, overclocking and real-world usage.

ASUS EN8600GT OC Gear 256MB Review

Mainstream graphics usually translate into a video card with an excellent price-performance ratio, but little in terms of extras. The ASUS EN8600GT OC Gear 256MB offers a new wrinkle to that formula, and not only provides mid-range performance, but also includes OC Gear hardware for real-time overclocking.

Sapphire HD 2600 XT Ultimate 256MB Review

The mainstream graphics market is usually where price and performance meet in a nearly perfect mix of extreme value, but Sapphire has added a new wrinkle to that formula. The Sapphire HD 2600 XT Ultimate 256MB drops the heatsink-fan in favor of a silent cooling system, while losing absolutely nothing in the performance arena.

Gigabyte GeForce 8500 GT 256MB Review

While most hardcore gamers take the high-end, or even mainstream, video card route, there are still a lot of people looking at snagging some gaming power for less than a C-note. Gigabyte may have just what you are looking for, as their super-charged, pre-overclocked GeForce 8500 GT 256MB leaves other entry-level cards in the dust.

Gigabyte GeForce 8600 GTS 256MB Review

The mainstream graphics entries from ATI and NVIDIA are finally here, and the GeForce 8600 GTS is shaping up as the card to beat in this market sector. It offers very competitive performance at a sub-$200 price tag, and we're taking the Silent-Pipe-equipped Gigabyte GeForce 8600 GTS 256MB up against a selection of mainstream and high-end cards, to see exactly where it fits in terms of features and performance.
