Palit chose to outfit this card with a 2-slot cooling solution of a gold colored heatsink. There are other Palit 9800GT cards that have different cooling with single slot solutions. Palit has artwork of their frog mascot on the cover of the card and the Palit logo next to the fan. The PCB design is similar to the 9600GT Sonic in color and configuration.

The rear of the card has a metal heat-spreader that covers the majority of the back corresponding to the memory chip layout, the GPU and more. The stickers for the Serial and Part Numbers of the card are also on the rear of the card. The card is about 9 inches long or about as long as NVIDIA’s reference card. Palit decided to cool the graphics chip with a twin heatpipe design that leads out from the heatsink covering the graphics chip.

The IO on the Palit GeForce 9800GT Super 1GB card is typical of the IO on most graphics cards of the last few years with a TV-Out connector and two DVI-I connectors. With this combination of ports, you can install two digital LCD monitors, two analog CRT monitors or a combination of the two types of monitors. The card has a HDMI port for audio on the top along with a SLI port to allow two of these cards to improve performance.
