Foxconn launches graphics cards based on GeForce 8800GTX/GTS : Blue LED for the extreme gamer



Foxconn have just unveiled their FV-N88XMAD2-OD and FV-N88SMBD2-OD PCI Express graphics cards powered by the latest NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800GTX and 8800GTS graphics processing unit.

Features of the FV-N88XMAD2-OD:
* 128 independent stream processors with shader clocks reaching 1.35GHz
* 768MB GDDR3 memory that interfaces with the GPU on a 384-bit bus and operating core and memory clock timings of 575 MHz and 1.8 GHz respectively.

The FV-N88SMBD2-OD model is slightly less intense, featuring 96 stream processors at 1.2GHz, and 640 MB GDDR3 memory in a 320-bit interface, and maximum 500 MHz core and 1.6 GHz memory clocks.

Other features of both chips include NVIDIA unified architecture with GigaThread technology, Microsoft DirectX 10 Shader Model 4.0 support, 16x full-screen anti-aliasing, true 128-bit floating point high dynamic-range(HDR) lighting, Quantum Effects physics processing technology, two dual-link DVI outputs support two2560x1600 resolution displays, PureVideo technology.

The Foxconn bundle includes a powerful RestoreIT backup/recovery utility, VirtualDrivePro accelerator software, USB game pad, and DVI-to-VGA and ‘HDTV cable’ (presumably this is an HDMI cable)

Now if that’s left your brain boggling, you can also delight in the aesthetic touch of a blue LED, apparently ideal for extreme gamers playing in a LAN party.
