Viva la G92(b) GPU!

That's a big minus, imo, since probably 99% of the motherboards do come with a hard silicon / PCB style SLI bridge.

Also: triple SLI with a graphic card that takes up 3 PCI slots, due to the cooler?

TwinTech informed us that prices had been lowered towards 169,- EUR
That's still way too close to the GTX260, imo.

The SP 192 model can be found around 150 Euros, already: http://www.alternate.de/html/product...icleId=331680&
The SP 216 can be had for 169 Euros, as well: http://www.alternate.de/html/product...216SP/318558/?

killer overclock you got out of it+
its price- is allmost justified by a 50 usd cooler.
like cyber said you can get a 260 that pretty much whoops it all over the place for a few dollars more

Twintech is a relatively new name in the graphics industry, they deliver some pretty interesting graphics cards really, and as such, all the more reason for us to focus on them.

Since this is our first ever review on their products, let me introduce them. Twintech is dedicated to providing high quality graphic solutions. Their headquarters are based in Hong Kong yet they have a strong focus on Europe. As such Twintech has a logistic warehouse in France providing European local shipping, customer service and sales support.

Nice review. I really like how the cooler looks

Hilbert, you listed Ati drivers but there are no Ati cards in the charts.

I wish, I can get a 8800GTS 512 here for 150 euros, the cheapest 260 is 200 euros.

I like the way that card looks, very aggressive.



Also the benches show how those 2Gb G92 cards are a joke, coming in lower than the 1Gb models at 2560x1600; hell I bet a 512mb model would over take the 1Gb one

I was looking at the water cooled 295, what happened? Did you hurt yourself?

i see this one has 2x 6pin connector, hm still the same as with 9800gtx+.

My first 250 was from point of view and it had 1x6pin... i changed it cause of the fan problem;
Now this one from Zotac has 1x8pin connector.. funny stuff.
