  1. Asus EAH3850 OCGear review

    Asus EAH3850 OCGear review

    7  

    Whatever happened to that 1950s science-fiction dream of computers as huge cabinets stacked wall-to-wall, with thousands of blinking lights and adjustable dials? All those optimistic scientists would probably be quite depressed to see what computers have become: mostly dull-grey, metal boxes with a monitor, keyboard and mouse. Asus is obviously planning to set the record straight with the EAH3850 OCGear.

    Unlike the AMD cards, not all the NVIDIA GPUs here feature the same basic specification. So, does the cut-down architecture of this Asus-made GeForce 8800 GS scupper its ability to compete with comparably priced Radeon HD 3850 boards?

    If there’s something to be said for keeping things simple and concentrating on the basics, then this Asus board makes its case loud and clear. It sticks entirely with NVIDIA’s reference design for GeForce 8800GT cards. The result is a total domination of our performance tests. Natch.

    What a difference 256MB of video memory makes. A year or so ago, we would have confidently recommended that 256MB of memory was plenty for monitors that max out below 1,920x1,200. Today, that logic has been lobbed out of the window.

    To be fair, we're not really looking at the 8500 card as a potential upgrade for a hardcore games system. Unless you're content playing your favourite games at 800 x 600 without any image quality settings on there's no way this will ever cut the mustard

    We took a look at Asus’ stock second gen 8800GTS before and while it was benching faster than the GT, it wasn’t boasting the sort of performance to convince us that this wide-boy was worth the extra money over its slim-line sibling.

    How do you take a phenomenally successful card and render it all but worthless? From the looks of the 256MB version of NVIDIA's all-conquering 8800GT all you really have to do is halve the video RAM and you're laughing, my son.

    None of the other cards on test would clock as highly as the Asus card without starting to actually slow down performance. With its whopping 700MHz clock speed, 2GHz memory and 1,750MHz shader engine. You'd expect it to be a clear winner in all our tests, and to a certain degree it is, although things aren't quite as clear cut as all that.

    The graphics world isn't exactly known for its straightforward nomenclature. With so many suffixes per chip - your GTs, GTXs, Pros, XTs and so on - it's no surprise that punters are often confused about what's what

    Nvidia's domination of the market with DX10-ready graphics cards continues unabated, this time with the 8800 Ultra. It's been several years since the GPU specialist has applied the term Ultra to its cards

    By many metrics, it's a pretty mediocre performer. Under load during 3D rendering, it's a whiny little beast. You can forget playing recent games at 720p with the image quality set anywhere near maximum.

    The 7900GS is a slightly cut down Nvidia GeForce 7900GT with four lesspixel pipelines, reducing its throughput slightly. This model from Asusdiffers in that both memory and GPU have been overclocked, giving a 20per cent speed boost over other 7900GS cards.
