Gainward FX PowerPack! Pro/660 TV graphics card - GF FX 5200 - 64 MB

As I mentioned in the PNY review, it seems that the In this case, combined with the slower memory speed of the Gainward card, it was enough of a difference to give the Ultra a pretty sizeable lead over the plain Oddly enough, in Comanche 4, where we're more limited by the processor than the video card, Gainward Vga FX all plain fits in exactly where one would expect. Since the Ultra has such higher clock speeds it maintains a large lead, and the is barely beating out the Ultra.

Accounting for the higher memory clock of the Ultra, it would seem to me that this could just be a performance improvement from driver optimizations. Results in Serious Sam are a bit confused. The Ultra is faster than theup until the testing with HQ settings enabled in the drivers. This puts the ahead by a decent amount, considering the framerates we're talking about. Since the has a slower memory clock, this is probably due to the z-compression and other nifty bandwidth-saving tricks that the has and the Ultra does not. Inferno shows the Gainward coming out right where Gainward Vga FX all should, managing to nearly double the Ultra's scores with HQ settings Gainward Vga FX all and keeping a good lead with normal quality settings.

It can't keep up with the Ultra at all, due to the lack of memory bandwidth to go around, but performance is certainly acceptable in x, a good resolution for playing if I do say so myself. These scores are even more impressive. All of that z-compression and color compression that the chips have is definitely coming in handy, even breaking FPS in x normal quality mode. The bundle here is pretty decent.

Review: GAINWARD FX POWERPACK PRO/ TV/DVI PCI - Graphics - - Page 2

They do pack in a game -- Duke Nukem, the Manhattan Project -- a copy of Intervideo's Wincinema suite, and their own set of customized drivers, basically a retooled set of Detonators, as are most manufacturer-distributed drivers. I'm left scratching my head about having MB of memory on these cards, though. So now you know the difference even better, end of topic, move on. The Golden Samples are actually built to run Gainward Vga FX all higher than reference settings thus are made for the tweakers among us, and there are many of us right. Gainward can only identify the Golden Sample cards by performance testing of each card. If it passes that test, then it is a Golden Sample and if not it becomes a standard product. Gainward does have the reputation of going the extra mile when is comes to new cooling solutions and PCB design. On the other hand this version is clocked a tad slower and of course 'only' has MB memory yet is using that excellent bit memory bus thus leaves heaps of memory bandwidth.

Let's have a look at the card now. The card's low-end origins are plain to see.

The PCI slot interface, too, is indicative of low power cards, for the bus cannot sustain midrange cards with healthy wattage requirements. Gainward's in-house styling invades the cooler. The pink aluminium heatsink, completely passive, is a low-profile affair.


The cooler comes away when you push the two white, spring-loaded pins Gainward Vga FX all the back of the card. Similarly, MHz DDR isn't cutting edge stuff, but we'll do well to remember that this is a budget card. There's little need for Gainward to apply any RAMsinks to this card.
