There is mention on the box of the 512MB of GDDR3 memory, PCI Express 2.0, dual-link DVI, and a few other tidbits.? Inside the box, Palit has included an installation/driver disk and guide, DVI to VGA converter, DVI to HDMI converter, and 6-pin to 8-pin power connector. The card here is essentially a stock reference card branded by Palit.

The 9800GTX+ differs from its predecessor with its die size and clock frequencies. The GTX+ is a 55nm die, down from the original 65nm chip. The original GTX also had clocks of 675/1100, while the GTX+ sports an improvement, now settling at 738/1100. While the memory clocks have remained the same, however, the shader clocks have also jumped up from 1688 to 1836.

Palit does produce their own cards, with their own board designs, coolers, and power management systems, but it seems usually this happens sometime a bit after the stock cards have been out for a little while.? That is the case here, as the 9800GTX+ model has been out for a bit, and this card is a stock one, likely to be replaced by something similar to a Sonic version, if our guess is right.? In any event, the 9800GTX+ here matches up beautifully on paper against the Palit 4850 we have, so let?s now move onto a closer look at the card itself.
