The G92-based graphics card market is getting very crowded, there are already dozens of cards available on the market and Galaxy has just added another pair.

As the name of the Galaxy GeForce 9800 GT Low Power series reveals, these cards use less power than standard GeForce 9800 GT graphics cards. The cards feature 55nm G92-283-B1 GPUs, 112 stream processors, 512MB or 1GB GDDR3 memory clocked at 1800MHz and a 256-bit memory bus.

The difference with other 9800 GT's is the core which is clocked at 550MHz instead of 600MHz, and it's possible the voltage has also been reduced. Additionally, as the power consumption of these cards is lower there's no need for a 6-in PCIe power connector.
