small The Mutants Gather: Vvikoo & Eagle 8800GT

The 8800GT with it’s unified stream processors should be no stranger to most hardware enthusiasts. The original 8800GT was released on the P393 reference PCB with a phase of GPU power chipped off. Today, two oddballs landed in our test labs for an almighty showdown.

The 8800GT with it’s unified stream processors should be no stranger to

most hardware enthusiasts. We reviewed it here last

year and concluded that it was indeed a worthy option for any rig-builder or gamer intent on

running the next two quarter’s games with relative ease. The original 8800GT was released on

the P393 reference PCB with a phase of GPU power chipped off. Today, two oddballs landed in

our test labs for an almighty showdown.

The two 8800GT graphic accelerators are found with PCB designs different

from the P393. Most notable is the use of 3-phase power regulation in both the Eagle and

Vvikoo graphics accelerators. The Vvikoo has twice the graphics buffer of the Eagle and is

expected to have an unfair advantage at higher resolutions.

They may be pumping the same silicon heart, have the same penchant for

speed, but each will have its own talents and handicaps. Graphics acceleration for nothing

less than the online heroes of this planet. Pwn those cybervillians with a mutant in your

rig!
