Gainward gives the ‘goes like hell’ treatment to the 7800GTX 512MB
I’m sure many of you are aware of Gainward?s new ?goes like hell??cards which can only be described as their ?Golden Sample? brand on steroids.
It denotes a special version of a specific card that is not just heavily overclocked, but also changes the memory specification (the actual chips are swapped out for faster IC?s). This is then stamped on a custom designed red PCB. Gainward currently have a 6800GS GLH and a 7800GT GLH both based on these principles, and believe me, they are stupendously fast, easily the fastest in there respective categories by a mile.
This brings us neatly to a new card allegedly coming from Gainward soon, a 7800 GTX 512MB ?Goes like hell?. This is not a suped up 256MB GTX, this is a suped up GTX 512MB, the card that is nowhere to be seen in the retail channel and is clocked at 550/1700MHz.
Gainward?s GLH version is rumoured to be clocked somewhere around 600-650 MHz on the core and a mind blowing 2.2 GHz on the memory. If this turns out to be more than a rumour it will most likely be faster than a 7900 GTX.
