Albatron GeForceFX 5700 Ultra Review

The first glimpse of NV36 came during Computex 2003 in Taipei this past fall. Though the cards were only showed to media behind closed doors, it was easy to see nVidia and its partner companies were eager to reveal something to counter ATI. For its part, nVidia have seen many of its previously exclusive manufacturing partners yield to consumer demand, and adopt a full line-up of ATI Radeon based parts.

The NV36 GPU on the other hand was set to compete where past Nvidia GPUs had proved to generate little demand.... and to its credit Albatron have certainly brought together an enticing assortment of specs and stats to dwell over.

The Albatron FX5700U spits out fast graphics care of its 475MHz GPU and 128MB of 900MHz DDR-II memory. Coupled with a host of nVidia software such as CineFX, Intellisample HCT, and Ultrashadow, makes this DX9 compatible card an easy contender against the popular Radeon 9800XT.

With competition for our spending dollars at an all time high, there are really only three area's left where videocard manufacturers can influence gammers decisions. The first and most important is obviously pricing, but after that a mix of software and feature bundles kicks in. Last, and what might seem least important is the cooling system. As nVidia's chips tend to run hotter than ATI's graphics processors, it has been a source of contention for many gamers to have a little vacuum cleaner whirling away inside their PC...

Albatron GeForceFX 5700 Ultra

Includes:

Users Manual, S-Video to S-Video cable, Composite to Composite cable, S-Video to Composite cable, Duke Nukem Manhattan Project, five game demo CD, Driver CD.

Albatron address this issue with their own custom cooling solution called "Wisefan II". The three fans of this large heatsink don't stick out and block the adjacent PCI slot, and perhaps more importantly, they run very quiet.
