XFX Unveils World’s Fastest Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS Graphics Card

XFX, a leading provider of advanced graphics cards and a division of Pine Technologies, has unveiled what seems to be the world’s highest performance graphics card based on Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS graphics processing unit (GPU) with 320MB of memory. The product is called a “Ferrari” and is branded under “Fatal1ty” trademark.

“For the gamer who demands the finest in speed and performance, XFX debuts the Ferrari of its graphics card lineup: The 8800 GTS Fatal1ty graphics card,” a statement by XFX reads.

XFX 8800 GTS 320MB Fatal1ty graphics card features Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS graphics chip clocked at 650MHz (1500MHz frequency for unified shader processors’ array), up 30% compared to Nvidia recommended clock-speed, as well as 320MB of GDDR3 memory operating at 2.0GHz, up 25% from reference frequency of 1.60GHz. Despite of considerable frequency shift, the new graphics boards still feature reference design and have been manufactured under supervision of Nvidia. Pine’s XFX picks up graphics boards capable of operating at higher clock-speeds and flashes appropriate BIOS versions to enable out-of-the-box overclocking.

The new XFX 8800 GTS Fatal1ty offer up to 15% better performance than the standard GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB, according to the graphics cards supplier. Like all the GeForce 8800 GTS-based graphics cards, XFX 8800 GTS 320MB Fatal1ty features HDCP, dual-link DVI and other video and output-related capabilities.

“XFX anticipates high demand for this card and urges enthusiasts to get theirs now, because, like this card’s speed, they’re going to go fast,” the company claims.

Pricing of the new board remains unknown.
