...with OCZ GeForce 8800 GTX
OCZ Technology has
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.

Ancient history by industry standards.. OCZ actually started out as an enthusiast cooler and GPU company years ago, I know most people know us for our memory now. Some will remember the OCZ Titan 3 five years ago, one of our top sellers at the time.

I've got 2GB of your DDR2-800 in my desktop. Only running it at DDR2-667 though to keep it in line with my FSB but at extremely tight timings. Is a good quality product.
Feel free to send me one of those bad boys as a token of your appreciation for my praise (yes the ricer mazda can stay on it).

The Titan 3 didn't take off due to problems with management not allowing us to spend that kind of money securing cards. Plus sparkle wouldn't sell us the cards without any heatsinks so pulling them off to replace with Blue Orb's wasn't jiving either. Ryan tried, but we managed to get only a handfull of cards.
I was in charge of the manual, box art... Kinda ironic how the car theme is still going strong with the OCZ though. (Still have the box for the Titan 3 somewhere! Heh)
