Verdict

Priced at Rs 14,750 (chances are you’ll get this card a bit lower on the street), the Palit 8800GT Sonic is an impressive offering that delivers performance with a cool head. If you’re looking for a fast DX 10 card, buy the 8800GT Sonic without any qualms—we guarantee satisfaction. If you’re the kind who wants to run games at maximum detail, invest in an SLI board and pick up two of these.

Palit 8800GT 512 Sonic detailed review

Sonic Boom!



The 8800GT Sonic utilises a very simple and radically different cooler from the stock NVIDIA cooler, and isn’t bad for it. Though not as attractive, a simple circular heatsink and a large embedded fan do get the job done better. The heatsink extends to strips that run over the memory chips, passively cooling them. Temperatures are around 15 degrees less than the stock cooler, meaning Palit has really got the Sonic’s thermals spot on! Tomb Raider Anniversary is bundled—sweet for all the Lara Croft fans floating around.

The 8800GT Sonic proved to be a pleasure to test. It comes really close to embarrassing its older siblings at half the price, even less. For reference, we’re throwing in our stock 8800GTX for a real comparison. We’ve used the highest settings that gamers are generally likely to use—4x AntiAliasing and 8x Anisotropic Filtering have been enabled; all other settings are at their maximum values.

Priced at Rs 14,750 (chances are you’ll get this card a bit lower on the street), the Palit 8800GT Sonic is an impressive offering that delivers performance with a cool head. If you’re looking for a fast DX 10 card, buy the 8800GT Sonic without any qualms—we guarantee satisfaction. If you’re the kind who wants to run games at maximum detail, invest in an SLI board and pick up two of these.
