It’s safe to say that nothing is missing in the accessories compartment for the MSI NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC. Everything you need is bundled, and that includes a full game.
Specifications: Let’s have a look at the specifications for the MSI NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC. The 8800GT is based on NVIDIA’s latest G92 core, and promises both better performance and less power consumption. The specifications for the MSI NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC are as following:
As mentioned earlier, the card from MSI is pre-overclocked, which means that the frequency of the core, RAM, and shader has been raised, compared to the stock clocks. The core frequency has been raised from 600Mhz to 660Mhz, RAM from 1800Mhz to 1900Mhz, and the shader from 1500Mhz to 1650Mhz
As with every PCI-E card from Nvidia, it’s possible to use two identical cards at the same time in SLI.
The MSI NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC also supports the new PCI-E 2.0 standard, which has a bigger bandwidth compared to PCI-E 1, and at the same time is able to deliver more power to the card. Like the rest of the Nvidia 8xxx series, the MSI NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC is also DX10 compatible.
By using the bundled cables, it’s possible to transmit a HD signal directly to your TV, if the TV supports the format. All in all, the MSI NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC specifications look promising.
The product: Now we’ll have a closer look at the design and layout of the MSI NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC card. The first thing you notice is that it’s very long and narrow. This is because of the single-slot cooling.
At first look, the MSI NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC looks very long, but the card has the exact same length as the 8800GTS, which means that the majority of people should be able to fit it in their computer.
