Verdict

The ASUS 8800GT 1GB comes with no bundled games, and at a price of Rs 18,900. It’s evident that there are no clear benefits from using the much large frame buffer. If you have set a higher budget for a card, then this 8800GT 1GB could be worth it—if you can get it for around Rs 15,000 in the market. Anything over that, and you’re better off saving for a 512 MB 8800GTS.

ASUS EN8800GT 1GB detailed review


An 8800GT With The Ultimate Top-up Plan!

The ASUS 8800GT is like any other 8800GT, except this one has been filled to the brim with a whopping 1 GB of memory. This isn’t the only 1GB card to come to our labs—the Palit 8500GT was another one, but didn’t quite outperform the other 8500GT-based cards. Could it be a similar fate for this card?

First things first—the 1GB card doesn’t come with the standard NVIDIA cooler: it’s been replaced by a much more robust and chunky cooler and an equally good fan. There’s no cooling for the memory, though. Overall, it’s very quiet and runs just fine with temperatures hovering around the 50º C mark.

Even with FSAA turned up to 4x and Antistrophic filtering to 8x, we were able to very respectable frame rates in Company of Heroes, F.E.A.R. and Doom 3, but the frame rate was only fractionally more than the standard 512 MB 8800GTs.
