Taipei, Taiwan, March 18th, 2008 – Leadtek Research Inc., known globally for extreme visual graphics technology development, proudly announces the launch of a new high-end graphics card, WinFast® PX9800 GX2. Combining the power of two GeForce® 9800 GPUs in a single graphics solution and 256 screaming fast stream processors, it provides the world’s fastest graphics solution and a complete high definition gaming and entertainment experience for PC. And with NVIDIA HybridPower™ technology, PX9800 GX2 is quite simply the fastest graphics card available – up to 50% faster than GeForce® 8800 Ultra.
Powered by 65nm technology and NVIDIA® multi-GPU technology, the WinFast PX9800 GX2 comes with a 1GB 512bit GDDR3 memory. It is also designed for the new PCI Express 2.0 bus architecture, offering the highest data transfer speeds for the most bandwidth-hungry games and 3D applications. At the same time it maintains backwards compatibility with existing PCI Express motherboards for the broadest support.
With the latest Microsoft® DirectX® 10 with full Shader Model 4.0 support, PX9800 GX2 can deliver realistic film quality gaming effects, guaranteeing users the best possible performance in 3D graphics user interface under the Windows Vista™ operating system. Furthermore, PX9800 GX2 with NVIDIA HybridPower™ technology allows users to switch to the motherboard GeForce GPU when running non graphically-intensive applications for a silent, low power PC experience.
Featuring the second generation NVIDIA® PureVideo™ HD technology engine, PX9800 GX2 enables smooth game play at extreme HD resolutions of up to 2560×1600 with all available in-game features turned on. Besides, the new card delivers hardware acceleration of HD movies and dual-stream picture-in-picture content for the ultimate interactive Blu-ray and HD DVD movie experience with spectacular picture clarity. Meanwhile, with an integrated HDMI™ connector, it allows users to send both high definition video and audio signals to their HDTV via a single cable.
PX9800 GX2, featuring NVIDIA® unified architecture, revolutionizes PC graphics performance through unprecedented processing power and efficiency. Also PX9800 GX2 supports industry leading Quad NVIDIA SLI® technology, providing amazing performance scaling by implementing 4-way AFR (Alternate Frame Rendering), for the world’s fastest gaming solution under Windows Vista™ with solid and state-of-the-art drivers. Add to all this the fact that the onboard NVIDIA® Quantum Effects™ technology takes physics effects to a whole new level of simulation and rendering on the GPU and you have a graphics card that is unbeatable in its class.
What’s more, the new card is bundled with “Neverwinter Nights 2”, an award-winning adventure game in which every decision directly affects every character and the passage of time rendering a stunning realistic impact to game-play, PX9800 GX2 offers true-to-life imagery in a fantasy gaming environment.
