Verdict

XFX’s PV-T88P-YDD4 is based around an overclocked (670 vs 600 MHz) 8800GT core and is pegged their “Alpha Dog Edition,” following the fraternity of vendors who like to name their top-end parts. The cooling solution is stock, with a funky-looking XFX sticker. A single-slot cooling solution for such a powerful card seemed like a recipe for fried GPU—and we did notice temperatures close to an 8800GTX; not good.

A (Ge)Force to be reckoned with



The new 8800 GT core is a fire-breather of a GPU based around a 65nm process. A significant change in this chipset (codenamed G92) is the new video processing engine, which should do wonders for hardware HD video decoding.

Not only did the overclocked XFX PV-T88P-YDD4 come really close to the Manli 8800GTX card (which runs at stock speed), it actually defeats the mighty G80 core in two benchmarks (check the table)! In 3D Mark 2006, we figure this is due to the higher shader clock speed—3D Mark benchmarks are typically shader-heavy. Company of Heroes is (surprise!) another shader-intensive game—another triumph for the XFX PV-T88P-YDD4. We expect stock 8800GT cards to be a bit slower than this card, but the biggest shocker of all is its price. Rs 19,500 is nearly half the price of an 8800GTX GPU based card—unbelievable!
