...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.

Premium Memory Huh?

Does the "Premium Memory" come from the same factory as the ASUS Striker Extreme?
I am sorry, but the only thing different about OCZ, ASUS, EVGA, XFX, and BFG video cards is:
1. The picture on the heatsink.
2. The price
3. The warranty
4. The Name
I only care about #2 and #3.
I am more interested in a "Premium Warranty" and an "Aggressive Price tag" than some rebranded memory.

Definitely correct for this model. However they did mention that they will be doing something more proprietary for a follow-up model. I guess for this one they are banking on
for sales. Obviously they won't mention that as their selling point, so they go with the uber-obscure "hand picked" stuff...let's see something

It's cheaper for them just to lie and make a profit like most companies do... "Sell the sizzle".
