Inno3D GeForce 7800 GTX Review
Inno3D uses the NVIDIA reference single slot
cooling solution like the rest. The shipping version of Inno3D 7800 GTX card is
clocked at 430Mhz for the core and 1200Mhz for the 256MB onboard DDR3 memory.
This card is selling at ~US$ 535 in retail stores which is some $ 60 cheaper than
the suggested retail price of US$ 599. This makes Inno3D 7800 GTX one of the
cheapest in the market with no compromise in PCB design and components quality
since they are NVIDIA reference cards and no lack in package content.
The 7800 GTX core is manufactured in TSMC Taiwan on 0.11 micron
process but it is slightly different from the
reference core. The markings on the die show that it is manufactured on Week
20 of Year 2005 with A2 stepping just like other retail 7800GTX cards out there.
Inno3D equipped their 7800GTX cards with Samsung
K4J55323QF-GC16 GDDR3 memory. These memories are in 144 Ball FBGA package
located at the front and back of the card with 8Mx32 array. The K4J55323QF-GC16
has an effective data rate of 1200Mbps/pin.
