Palit

This past year, Palit Systems had vacated the US market, but are now pushing back into the US to increase its market presence and deliver an excellent product for the enthusiast community. Why the enthusiast community, you ask? The company is able to manufacture its own board solutions to be able to monitor and manage the build process from start to finish. Additionally, by creating custom builds, the cooling solutions are able to be enhanced significantly, offering increased overclocking abilities and cooler running video cards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first thing I looked at was a new Mercury Design GTX 570 Sonic Platinum Edition card with a base clock frequency of 800MHz, a 68MHz bump over the stock frequency of 732MHz. on top of that, you have an enhanced heatpipe-based dual-fan cooling solution and sweet looks. Also floating around was a standard sonic design with the enhanced cooling solution and a clock speed of 750MHz. There was a GTX 580 that included an improved cooling solution and we heard a little talk of possibly a Sonic Model with 3GB of memory on board. Hmmmmmm.

 

 

Palit is not only looking at the high-end market, but has the mid and lower-end covered as well with the GTX 460, GTS 450 and GT 430. A really interesting solution was a low profile GTS 450 for use in low profile HTPC cases. Instead of a slim, single slot cooling solution, the fan and heat sink are beefed up to keep the card cool.

 

 

 

It looks like Palit is back with a vengeance. If the Sonic GTX 460 and GTS 450 cards we looked at are any indication of what’s to come at the high-end, then Palit’s return to the US with its Sonic lineup should prove interesting.
