MSI NX8800GT-PTD1GE: 1 GB memory, DisplayPort and efficient cooling
The Taiwanese company Micro-Star International (MSI), which recently introduced X48 Platinum and X48С Platinum motherboards, has expanded its range with another new product – the MSI NX8800GT-PTD1GE video adapter on the NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT graphics processor. The manufacturer calls the main features of the product the presence of the DisplayPort interface and the amount of memory increased to 1 GB.
As you know, the DisplayPort interface is used to transmit high-definition video and audio signals. In addition, DisplayPort contains an additional channel that can be used to further reduce cabling by connecting devices such as a USB hub, webcam, or monitor touch panel.
The presence of a large amount of memory on the board, which the GPU can use according to its needs, allows using a large number of textures and other resources with a minimum of latency, which has a positive effect on the quality of the high-resolution image.
An interesting feature of MSI NX8800GT-PTD1GE is the use of X-type Fan-pipe cooling system with heat pipes. According to the manufacturer, it is especially useful for those who like to experiment with increasing frequencies and changing other settings. Occupying one seat, the system nevertheless has a high efficiency. According to MSI, at an ambient temperature of 25 ° C and a load of 100%, it keeps the GPU temperature at 60 ° C, approaching in efficiency the ZALMAN VF1000 cooling system, which occupies two slots and is used in the highest-performance Zilent series motherboards.
