ASUS has been a forerunner in the graphics scene. Although the ASUS EN7800GT Blue LED Edition doesn’t boast a higher-then-normal operating clockspeed, it does adds that special effect to your beautifully crafted case. Find pictures of this cool looking card in this review!
NVIDIA 7800GT have been around in the market for quite sometime, but every
card possessed the same printed circuit board and heatsink as the reference
7800GT by NVIDIA except for different brand’s emblem on the heatsink to
distinguish themselves. This Asus Extreme N7800GT Blue LED Edition that we will
look into today, is one of the first very few to have a different 7800GT from
the reference, possessing a different heatsink and printed circuit board. It
comes with a pretty blue LED on the heatsink to light up the card.
The Asus Extreme N7800GT Blue LED Edition comes in a large box
with adequate protection of the card from shocks using bubble blocks. As seen on
the box, features such as SLi, HDTV, VIVO and ASUS’s very own Splendid video
enhancing technology feature. No indications of Blue LED Edition were on the box
to distinguish the card from the Asus Extreme N7800GT original edition.
The ASUS 7800GT Blue LED edition graphics card from the side
view. It is one of the very few cards that are not using reference heatsink and
printed circuit board. It uses a blue printed circuit board which is different
from the reference green printed circuit board that every other 7800GT used. It
uses the same heatsink like the Asus Extreme N6800GT PCI-e.
