Palit GeForce 8800 GT Review



OverclockersClub will be running the Palit GeForce 8800 GT through our benchmarking suite to see how the video card performs. The OverclockersClub series of gaming benchmarks is used to verify the performance of each product. If you would like to see how other video cards performed in an XP platform, please check our Video Card Section under reviews. We will show comparisons to other video cards using the Vista Platform, which can be found below. All video card settings were left at setup defaults to eliminate any variables.

The Palit GeForce 8800GT will be tested on two systems for this review, in the benchmarks you will see the 8800GT listed twice first for the AMD System and next on an Intel System. What many of you may have heard is true... there is a processor bottleneck in some games when using an nVidia card on a Phenom system utilizing the Spider Platform. Hopefully as the platform matures as well as the Phenom processors we will be able to achieve increased framerates in some benchmarks. If you would like to see how the ATI cards benchmarked on an Intel based System please see these other reviews, ATI 3870, ATI 3850.
