ECS GeForce 9800 GTX+ Hydra SLI Review

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - 2008/09/10 at 10:08

Categories: Graphics Cards   Tags: , , , , , , ,

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.

If time is money, this article will save money your money: if you don’t have the time to research among the huge amount of reviews and benchmarks across the web, or if you don’t feel confident enough in your ability to make the right decision, this guide is for you.

Tom’s Hardware Guide has come to your aid with a simple list of the best gaming cards offered for the money:

For example in the range of 350$ to 500$, Tom’s Hardware recommends 2 radeon HD 4850 in Crossfire instead of one GeForce GTX 280. But if you have already a SLI motherboard, the best choice is 2 GeForce 9800 GTX in SLI.

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 :)


NVIDIA GeForce GTX280 SLI Performance Test

The NVIDIA GTX 280 is easily the fastest gaming GPU at the moment and we thought we’d find out how well it does in a dual card setup. From past experiences, we’ve seen that SLI or Crossfire add quite a bit of overhead (SLI especially) and doubling the GPUs certainly doesn’t result in doubling the performance- far from it actually. We already had nVidia’s reference card and thus, when we received the ASUS GeForce GTX 280, we wanted to see how fast can it get with an SLI setup.

Read the complete review HERE.

As expected, the drivers aren’t quite ready for SLI. Games like ET: Quake Wars and Half Life 2 Episode 2 perform worse in an SLI setup on the GTX 280 than with a single card.

Conclusion- At the moment, a single GTX 280 is a much better option that two. With driver optimizations, this could change but certainly not for now.
