ECS GeForce 9800 GTX+ Hydra SLI Review

ECS GeForce 9800 GTX+ Hydra SLI is kit that contains two modified GeForce 9800GTX+ and a water-cooling kit. Guru3D got this kit and has published a 16-page review: ECS GeForce 9800 GTX+ Hydra SLI Review.

The Verdict:

I like the ease of use, easy installation and the cooling performance.

But the kit is really efficient, cools pretty fantastic and as a result, though you now have two cards rendering your games, you can even overclock with a very healthy safety margin.

My favorite game at this very moment is Mass Effect. I play it at 2560×1600 with the image quality settings as defined in this review. With one GTX+ card still averages at 37 frames per second (which already is bloody nice for the money), however with that second GTX+ added I end up at an average FPS of 70. It is an excellent modern title that shows Multi-GPU gaming potential so well with. And that’s where you need to seek the true benefit, modern games.

GeForce 9800 GTX+ SLI Test

Guru3D has tested the NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ in SLI.

Read the complete review HERE.

So then, for roughly 350 EUR / 400 USD you get to play around with a grand amount of performance, there’s just no denying that. In retrospective two of these cards will beat the GeForce GTX 280, pretty easily actually

When we purely focus at the 9800 GTX+ SLi scaling, we then see that after 1600×1200 SLI kicks in very well. In the situations where you get really GPU bound you’ll notice your performance nearly doubly up, and that’s just very decent performance. But that is the denominator in the back of my mind, you need to play your games above a resolution of 1600×1200 for SLi to kick in hard and to be able to witness that return of your investment. Well, that or playing Crysis actually :)

Inno3D GeForce 9800 GTX Overclock Edition Review

Guru3D has reviewed Inno3D’s GeForce 9800 GTX overclocked edition.

Read the 14-page review HERE.

I think Inno3D does a superb job with their product line. With the 9800 GTX OC edition, Inno3D brought a great product to the market, with the extra game full game you’ll retrieve some additional value. And that coupled with the recent price fall in the NVIDIA GTX series … you really can’t go wrong here and you’ll love playing the latest games with it.

Radeon HD 4870


Radeon HD 4850

FurMark has been used to stress Radeon HD 4870 and 4850’s GPUs.

Final words
So, numbers can talk for itself. With the price tag $199(HD 4850) and $299 (HD 4870), RV770 is the BEST bang for the buck. Compare to GTX 260, A $299 only HD 4870 is a smarter choice. Yes, using this kind of word seems quite biased, but if you read all numbers from our review you will see my point.

Compare to GTX 260, HD 4870 is only 3/4 of its price while test items show the card have almost the same firepower!

HD 4850’s rival is 9800GTX, and we can see while their price keeps the same, HD 4850 have more than 15% leading.
