...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.

Oh yeah what was the controversy about more specifically?

OCZ, the original company, started out as some guys selling Socket A Tbird CPU's that were tested to run at higher clock speeds. They did the pencil trick on the CPU bridges that unlocked the CPUs. They were sold at quite a discount from what the real AMD clocked CPU would be sold at. I made the mistake of buying an Athlon 1100 that was an unlocked 750. After many months it wouldn't stay at 1100 stably. I finally had to drop it to 750 MHz, and I paid like $315 for that CPU which is a lot in any case.
They've since been bought out and are basically a new/different company.

that and much more lol. they had a picture on their homepage of some huge looking professional building, and someone posted some alleged pictures of their "lab" and it was a disheveled mess which looked like the backroom of a white box store.
"We are going to continue to work with them to make sure they understand the reality of the Internet. A lot of these people don't have Ph.Ds, and they don't have a degree in computer science." -- RIM co-CEO Michael Lazaridis
