Like the Zebronics 8800GT and MSI 8800GT, this one’s also based on the
8800GT chipset from NVIDIA. But it comes with 256 MB of GDDR3 RAM, which is
lower than what MSI or Zebronics have. It is slightly over-clocked with a core
clock speed of 650 MHz and memory clock speed of 1.6 GHz. And like the MSI card,
it doesn’t have HDMI support, but supports HDCP. Apart from this, all other
features like SLI, HDTV and dual DVI are present. This card didn’t perform as
well in our tests as the MSI or the Zebronics card but that’s mainly due to its
lesser memory. In 3D Mark06 a score of 10,736 is considered good enough for any
card but it is still less than what MSI 8800GT or Zebronics 8800GT cards scored.
In fact the score is even lesser than the ATI Radeon HD3850, which is the
cheapest card in this range. In gaming tests though, the card was somewhat
disappointing. In Company of Heroes, it scored 101.5 fps which is much lower
than what we got from the other two 8800GT cards. In Unreal Tournament 3 though,
it recovered some lost pride with a score of 61.2 fps in UT3, higher than what
we got from ATI Radeon HD3850 and comparable to MSI and Zebronics 8800GT cards.
In Crysis it managed a score of 27.1 fps at max setting, which is at par with
what we got from MSI and Zebronics 8800GT cards and is higher than the ATI
Radeon HD3850. Overall this is the most expensive card in its class even though
its performance is not anything spectacular over the two lower priced
competitors.

Bottomline: There are other 8800GT cards
available that not only perform better but also command a lesser price.
