AMD and Sapphire: Official Suppliers at the WCG 2007

AMD today announced SAPPHIRE Technology, the official graphics supplier for the World Cyber Games (WCG) Grand Final, will exclusively supply graphics cards based on the ATI Radeon™ HD 2000 series from AMD for the competition. As the official WCG supplier of GPUs, AMD will co-host a demonstration area with SAPPHIRE to showcase exciting next-generation platform technology for the gaming community. The WCG 2007 event is scheduled to take place in Seattle, WA from October 3-7.

The Sapphire HD 2600 X2 DUAL, also to be featured at booth #10, delivers an incredible combination of DirectX® 10 gaming and stunning visual effects for a premium Windows Vista® experience. Packing two Sapphire HD 2600 XT graphics processors on one PCI-Express card, the Sapphire HD 2600 X2 DUAL can drive up to four Dual-link DVI displays or a single display in CrossFire™ mode with considerably enhanced performance, and includes 1GB of GDDR3 memory on board with 800MHz clock speeds.

“As official suppliers for the WCG 2007, AMD is collaborating with SAPPHIRE to present a world-class gaming platform experience for competitive and casual gamers,” said Godfrey Cheng, director of platform marketing and gaming, AMD Graphics Products Group. “The World Cyber Games is the pinnacle of competitive PC gaming and a perfect venue to demonstrate how ATI Radeon™ HD 2000 series graphics with CrossFire push the boundaries of visual realism.”

“The SAPPHIRE HD 2600 XT brings a compelling mix of graphics quality and performance to the Grand Final 2007,” said Adrian Thompson, vice president of Marketing, SAPPHIRE Technology. “It is just one of the great SAPPHIRE products based on the ATI Radeon™ HD 2000 series that brings wide choice to gamers in a range of state-of-the-art products that now extends from top-to-bottom.”

The best gamers around the world gather in different cities to share the excitement and fun of the game tournaments. This year’s Grand Final will feature more than 700 gamers from 70 countries.

Pretty cool stuff =O

Edit: Hmm, when I try to add article pages, the list only shows news articles from a long time ago, and the edit page list is upside-down o.O

Edit 2: Could you make it so that we can still log-on normally? I don't always like to log onto the forum when I'm posting news since it clears the "New Posts" list and sometimes I don't have the time to go through things

Loving it Jim! :)
Still get the damn aligning problem.. but oh well.. it is only a little problem.

I don't understand what the problem is with aligning?

To align something like a picture.

Double return

Select middle align

Click picture icon, do your stuff

Double return

Select align left

That's it, no more complicated than that. If you have to take a look at the HTML, but don't mess to much or it won't be XHTML valid

I don't suppose you could make that feature "optional"? I sometimes start news pieces up and not have time to finish them (generally at school where I have limited time) and I'd prefer not having the New Posts list cleared by logging into the forum.
