OC3D Press Release

Official Press Release

The first collaborative effort by gaming industry leader XFX and the world’s No. 1 ranked gamer, Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel debuted today. The 7600 GT Fatal1ty Professional Series Video Card is touted as quite possibly the fastest 7600 GT card in the world.

The 7600 GT marks the first release in the XFX/Fatal1ty partnership announced earlier this year. “This card proves that teaming XFX technology with the hardcore gamer’s demands results in performance that buyers literally haven’t seen before,” said Eddie Memon, Vice President of XFX. “With Fatal1ty doing his best to challenge our capabilities as a development team, and our efforts to impress and outperform his expectations, the card not only stuns visually, it delivers the goods in efficiency and state-of-the art performance. It is truly for gamers by gamers.” The 7600 GT Fatal1ty Professional Series currently out-clocks Nvidia’s default speed by 14%. Better still, this is a performance overclocked product that features an affordable price that will appeal to all players.

Best of all, with input from extreme gamer Fatal1ty, this card is a competition-ready piece of equipment that will satisfy the most serious gamer. “The graphics card you use in gaming can make or break your performance, which is why I decided to work with XFX to come up with a product that really meets what a professional gamer needs,” explains Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel, about making XFX his choice for a collaborative partner. “I work hard to be the best at what I do and continue to improve my game. XFX feels the same about developing and manufacturing top quality products. This card shows what happens when a company listens to the end-user of their product, which is exactly what I wanted and what the buyer deserves.”

Unlike other cards on the market the 7600 GT utilizes XFX’s proprietary stealth heatpipe cooling technology, dubbed Silent But Deadly™. It runs without a standard fan but cools with more efficiency due to the passive distribution of heat from the GPU to the aluminum fins that are behind the video card. This spreads the heat into a wider surface area where it is air cooled and because air and dust are not forced through the heatsink, there are also reduced concerns of clogged heatsinks that may cause overheating in time.

Sporting the signature Fatal1ty brand, the 7600 GT Fatal1ty Professional Series Video Card by XFX also features high-definition video playback with up to 1080i resolution, is Microsoft® Windows Vista™ ready and True High Dynamic-Range (HDR) Rendering supports incredibly life-like PCI-Express graphics for best visual sharpness and clarity by improving lighting effects, shading, filtering, texturing, and blending. It’s SLI-ready, meaning users can double their performance by adding a second card. Enthusiasts also enjoy the Dual-Link Technology, which enables digital output up to 2560x1600 for the largest and highest resolution flat panel displays, with Dual DVI capabilities plus a DVI to analog adapter so players can convert VGA output to a DVI connector. Another XFX-only feature U.S. buyers have is the Double Lifetime Warranty, which guarantees product performance for both the original and second owner.

Mr. Smith

simple answer = yes. but thats how it is all the time with vid cards. theres always something bigger, badder, and better 2-3 months down the road.



True.

My predicament is this: I have the itch. Before you ask no, the lovely young lady I am seeing has not given me an STI, the itch I speak of is the one to get a dx10 card.

I am trying to ascertain if getting either one 8800gtx or possibly 2 8800gts in Jan/Feb is worth while if they are only going to be replaced by some uber 8900gtx (or whatever it may be called) using the new 45mm process...

My 7900gto is holding its own at the moment so I can wait a little longer.

Its just that itch was just an annoyance is fast becoming unbearable! I may have to get a new case and tripple rad to tide me over lol... I want dx10 sooo badly

You want DX10 soooo badly because A.) It's never going to see XP B.) It's currently in use on Windows Vista which you aren't running C.) Even if you had Windows Vista you couldn't use a G80 with it if you wanted to D.) There are no DX10 games available.

I don't see why you MUST upgrade. I'd just wait to see what the next gen offers, by that time Vista will be out, there might be a DX10 game on the horizon, and nVidia should have some drivers that actually worth with DX10 on Vista with the G80.

I see no hurry.

All valid ponits and i agree with waiting a bit, but G80s still rape DX9 games we have now...

Agreed. But unless ur benching ur really not going to see a $600+ improvement in performance (coming from a 7900GTO in this instance). It just seems like money wasted right now. I could see it if maybe u were still running a 6800GT and u were wanting to upgrade.

The only way I'd get P'ed-O is if nVidia came out with DDR4 on a video card in Q1/07... other than that, an 8800GTX/S is fine now for getting ready when Vista shows up and games/ other programs show.

The w/c for the 8800's would be really nice, but I didn't see any for sale so I don't see it coming out any time soon. Matter of fact, I don't really pay attention to 'new product' rumors where the pc is concerned... look how long C2D was in sight before being available.:mad: (Honestly, I thought it was a load of hype... WRONG AGAIN, RONALD! D'OH!!)

PS: This was also my 100th post... ty, ty, you're too kind...:beerchug:

I think nVidia will have a GDDR4 card ready for 2007 personally, but I'm still getting an 8800GTS :D
