Ontario, CA, Sept. 17, 2007 – For the gamer who demands the finest in speed and performance, XFX debuts the Ferrari of its graphics card line-up: The 8800 GTS Fatal1ty graphics card.


This 8800 GTS allows gamers to redline their gaming experience with a clock speed well ahead of both the Extreme and XXX editions available from XFX, and 30% better performance than the standard 8800 GTS 320MB.

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. All 8800 GTS Fatal1ty graphics cards are HDTV-, SLI-, HDCP- and RoHS-ready, giving users world-class TV-out functionality and DirectX 10 performance capabilities. The cards also offer significantly enhanced scalability on more than 60 of the top PC games, and 320MB of unbelievable DDR3 power. Dual Dual-Link DVI enables the 8800 GTS to drive the industry’s largest and highest resolution flat panel displays, supporting digital output of up to 2560X1600 on not one—but two—displays.

Rare speed. Rare card. Roarin’ to go.
