...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.

If I recall correctly, OCZ was a little sketchy back in the day but since a few years ago have been able to stand side by side with other major RAM makers/resellers in quality.

This card reminds me a little bit of the Crucial 9x00 series of ATI cards, except I was disappointed then to learn that they did not offer any kind of better or special RAM on the card itself, them being a memory company I expected they would leverage their strength there.

This card is attractive enough, true I would like to see other HSF designs. The 'race car' is a little generic, something I'd expect to see from Gainward or one of the other big asian resellers. The 'OCZ' script would look better there, just no camouflage please.
