Check out these quotes from Palit GeForce GTX 470 reviews & previews
"Overall the Palit GeForce GTX 470 is the best examples we have seen and should it hit shelves at a price lower than $350 US, then it is most certainly going to be the most popular GeForce GTX 470 on the market. For those with their heart set on owning a GeForce GTX 470, we have no problem recommending the custom Palit version, especially if the pricing comes in as expected."
"Palit introduces its version of the GTX 470, but it's not just any old GTX 470 -- it's "Cooler and Quieter."
"Palit's GeForce GTX 470 is a solid implementation of a non-reference design for the GTX 470. Coming at reference design clocks, we didn't expect any changes in performance - and there weren't any. Palit also went with several design choices that aren't performance related. The major changes are that Palit uses a dual-fan cooling setup instead of the single fan on the NVIDIA heatsink. Another change is the voltage regulation circuitry which has been designed with cost in mind. Let's start with that. A cheaper voltage regulation design can often result in higher power draw or less stable power delivery which could show in lower overclocking limits. In our testing, the Palit GTX 470 reached a maximum overclock comparable to the reference design, so overclocking is not affected. Power consumption on the other hand is higher in all our tests, but the difference in idle and Blu-Ray playback is so small it is negligible. During gaming however there is an increase in power requirement of around 20 W. Higher power draw always means more heat which needs to be handled by the cooler. Palit did a decent job here. Their dual fan design emits roughly the same noise as the reference design in both idle and load. In regard to temperatures, the Palit solution is actually running a few °C cooler, but not by enough to make a substantial difference."
"Palit do what they do best; bring a model people want to the market at a price they're willing to pay. Considering we know the OC potential of the GTX 470, the model is becoming more and more mouth watering as time goes on."
