...with OCZ GeForce 8800 GTX

OCZ Technology has reentered the graphics card market with its latest OCZ 8800 GTX. The new OCZ 8800 GTX arrives clocked at the stock 575 MHz core and 1800 MHz memory speeds. It’s equipped with 768MB of GDDR3 memory on a 384-bit memory interface. While the initial specifications sound like a run-of-the-mill GeForce 8800 GTX based card OCZ Technology has a few tricks up their sleeves.

Each OCZ 8800 GTX is equipped with premium GDDR3 memory. The memory is also additionally screened to give users greater overclocking headroom. OCZ Technology doesn’t mention how high the cards can overclock.

Nevertheless, OCZ Technology VP of Marketing and Communications, Alex Mei claims "By providing the best components, then hand screening them we can ensure the best hardware platform in which tweakers can start overclocking. This allows high end consumers to overclock to fit thier unqiue personal requirements."

Expect the OCZ 8800 GTX to hit the usual retailers tomorrow. Pricing is expected to be a little higher than competing GeForce 8800 GTX based cards.

Yes, you . VTEC engines occur in many makes of car, and not just Hondas and other Ricer runabouts either. Enthusiasts have been known to fit them into Fords, into Cadillacs, even into the odd mini or two, as they too wish to feel the full force of this meme, to know themselves exactly what it's like to realise VTEC JUST KICKED IN, YO!!

Variable valve timing may be in many makes of automobile now, but each car company has a different name for it. Honda calls their's VTEC, so only Hondas have VTEC. Toyota's is called VVT-I, BMW's is called VANOS, etc.

And yes, Wankel engines cannot have variable valve timing since they don't use any valves.

Fill in any other type of VVT in place of VTEC then :P Anyway that's not a replica of a rex7, it just resembles one.

Actually, that's no RX7. It's an even more embarassing no-namer someone probably rendered for a high school project. Nice OCZ.. Guess I could put some duct tape over it if need be, but that's graphic is horrendous.

If anything it looks more like an RX-8. RX 7s have flip up lights and more curves on the hood.
