XFX GeForce 6800GT Review

Here we can see a front-end shot of the XFX GeForce 6800GT. Previous cards from XFX have used a dark blue colored PCB, but this time around XFX has decided to stick with the “reference” green colored PCB we saw with NVIDIA’s reference designs.

The card’s eight memory modules, clocked at 500MHz (1GHz effective), are all located on the front of the PCB so they can be cooled by the card’s 3 piece cooling unit.

As you can see from the picture above, the XFX GeForce 6800GT only takes up one slot on your motherboard, allowing it to be used in SFF systems.

Unlike the GeForce 6800 Ultra that needs two power connectors, the XFX GeForce 6800GT only has one molex power connector on its back end.

A feature that is often overlooked in today’s graphics cards is fan noise. The XFX GeForce 6800GT’s fan noise is comparable to that of the Radeon X800 series, running a lot quieter than last years flagship model, the GeForce FX 5950 Ultra.

And finally the XFX GeForce 6800GT has the standard VGA, DVI, and S-Video outputs.
