Ultra/2400 „Golden Sample“ GLH (Goes Like Hell) Gainward will be first to market with a GeForce 6800 GT product using 1.6ns/1.2GHz DDR3 memory target-ing the 3D gaming enthusiast market segment. First mass production of the AGP processor board will hit the retail market before Oct. 20 at a recommended retail price of € 549.
Offering „faster than ultra speed“ the Gainward PowerPack! Ultra/2400 „Golden Sample“ GLH“ is based on a hand-selected NVIDIA GeForce 6800GT graphics processor (GPU) and Gainward’s award winning red high-performance/wide-band-width hardware designed to run at 400Plus MHz core clock using 256 MB of today’s fastest 1.6ns/1.2GHz DDR3 memory, targeting a significant performance increase over NVIDIA’s widely proliferated GT reference design (350/1000). With two DVI/VGA converters included in the package the Gainward PowerPack! Ultra/2400 „Golden Sample“ GLH is compatible with any combination of two digital or analogue flat panels, CRTs or TV displays.
