Albatron 7300GT - Run silent, run fast
Albatron Technology, PC circuit board manufacturer, has announced a
surprisingly powerful 7300GT VGA card with a revolutionary passive heat
dissipation device. This card also uses the latest generation PCI Express
standards, employs NVIDIA®'s renowned SLI technology and supports all of the
current mainboard designs on the market for this type of card.
With the 7300GT, Albatron set out to tackle increasing heat and noise issues
that have followed technical advancements in component performance. Basically,
high performance leads to rising temperatures which require larger, powerful
fans which use electricity and generate fan noise. Albatron had to ask, "Why do
you absolutely have to have active cooling (heat sink and fan) to tackle high
intensity graphics?". So from an economic and environmental perspective Albatron
designed the 7300GT with a heat pipe that dissipates heat to an array of thin
metal fins which hang off the end of the card. The fins then use the wind
circulation from embedded case fans to dissipate the heat. Early media reviews
have the Albatron 7300GT dropping the GPU temperature by 6 degrees Celsius
compared to another competitor 7300GT card with a passive cooling device.
The engine core clock on the 7300GT reaches a speedy 400 MHz. It also
supports Scalar 8 pipeline design which greatly improves engine core efficiency.
As for memory, the GeForce 7300GT carries 256 MB of DDR2 memory with a memory
clock that can reach an astonishing 700 MHz. Together with a 128-bit memory bus,
this high performance and high capacity memory lets even the most demanding
gamers enjoy great quality 3D game play.
The 7300GT also features a new and more powerful edition of NVIDIA's
PureVideoTM technology which allows the 7300GT to support 1080P HD (High
Definition) video output. Another supported feature is the new H.264 standards
for video and music. This new standard boasts extremely high quality video but
has been criticized for taking up system resources (CPU). However, with
PureVideo, the CPU is vigorously protected, reducing the load on the CPU by more
than half compared to predecessor cards. With PureVideo, you are putting in high
quality CE video player functionality right into your system but for only a
fraction of the price.
With the Albatron 7300GT, we have never seen such a jump in performance
compared to a previous generation card of the same class. The 7300GT is the
perfect mix of performance, value, efficiency and quiet and is sure to become
the talk of the town.
