ASUS EN8800GTS 512MB Graphics Card

The ASUS EN8800GTS 512MB is based on the NVIDIA G92 GPU, which is the leaner, meaner version of the ground-breaking NVIDIA G80 GPU that powered graphics cards like the GeForce 8800 GTX and the GeForce 8800 Ultra.

The ASUS EN8800GTS 512MB looks set to blaze a new trails in both performance and value for money. It not only boasts the smaller, cooler and faster G92 GPU, it also comes with the VP2 PureVideo HD video processor which allows it to completely take over HD decoding from the CPU.

As such, it offers significant advantages in performance and features over the older GeForce 8800 graphics cards. But just how much faster is the EN8800GTS 512MB compared to the new GeForce 8800 GT or the higher-end GeForce 8800 GTX? Let's find out in this comprehensive review of the ASUS EN8800GTS 512MB.

Our Review System

Tech ARP is committed to developing new ways to improve your experience with us. As part of our continuous efforts to improve the value of our reviews to you, we are implementing a multi-tier review system.

This review system is designed to allow you to quickly receive information on the latest hardware or software. This new system also allows you to quickly get the gist of the review without reading through it. This can be very useful, especially in situations where you need to make a quick purchase decision.

In this new system, we start with a Product Overview whenever a company sends us a press release about their latest product. We shift through extraneous PR-talk to create a straightforward summary of the product's features as well as specifications. This allows you to quickly find out all the pertinent details about the product, without reading through official press releases.

When we receive the product for review, we will quickly take photos of it and create a Pictorial Review. The purpose of a pictorial review is to allow you, the reader, to quickly examine the product visually. It may help you make better purchase decisions, especially if you cannot wait for the full review.

After thorough testing, we will post a Comprehensive Review of the product. This adds on to the pictorial review with comprehensive test results and our final conclusion on the product.

But no matter whether you are reading a Pictorial Review or a Comprehensive Review, you can always read the summary of the review as well as examine the product's specifications right on the first page. In all our new reviews, we will maintain the first page as a Product Overview page. If the product is listed in PriceGrabber, you can also check out the lowest price online.

We hope this new review system will make your experience a lot more enjoyable and informative!
