As with all 8800 GPUs, the 8800 GTS card delivers the absolute fastest and best quality DX9 and OpenGL gaming experience today.


PARSIPPANY, N.J. - February 12, 2007 - PNY Technologies®, Inc. today announced immediate availability of the XLR8(TM) GeForce® 8800 GTS 320MB graphics card. Based on the NVIDIA® GeForce 8 Series of GPUs, this card delivers next generation image quality and a unified architecture at an attractive price point.

As with all 8800 GPUs, the 8800 GTS card delivers the absolute fastest and best quality DX9 and OpenGL gaming experience today. And with full support of Microsoft® DirectX® 10, Microsoft Windows Vista Premium users will receive the best possible experience with the Windows Aero 3D graphics user interface and performance on upcoming DX10 games.

"Without the premium price tag, our XLR8 8800 GTS 320MB edition delivers incredible 3D performance, which allows gamers to experience their favorite 3D titles at mainstream resolutions," said Nicholas Mauro, senior marketing manager for PNY Technologies consumer graphics cards and memory. "Game enthusiasts will still benefit from all the high-end features of NVIDIA's GeForce 8 Series but with lower power consumption to meet the gamer's price and performance sweet spot."

XLR8 GeForce 8800 GTS by PNY Technologies - Features 320MB of high-speed GDDR3 frame buffer memory and a 500 MHz core clock. The card is designed to run with the PCI Express bus architecture. Moreover, PNY's new XLR8 graphics card supports NVIDIA SLI(TM) technology for up to 2x the performance of a single graphics card. Outputs include DVI + DVI + HDTV/S-Video. The 8800 GTS is available now from major e-tailers and retailers for an MSRP of $299.99 and $349.99, respectively.

Mauro added, "The 8800 GTS card rounds out PNY's new XLR8-brand Performance Edition line of graphics cards to provide a solution for game enthusiasts looking for graphics eye candy on a budget."

Additional features introduced on the NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series include a fully unified shader core, which dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics, or pixel shading operations. The card's unified stream processors efficiently process geometry shader programs, while reducing dependence on the CPU. Moreover, Shader Model 4.0 support enables more complex operations on the GPU, reducing the load and CPU cycles that can be applied to game A.I. (artificial intelligence) complexity.

NVIDIA's GigaThread(TM) technology supports thousands of independent, simultaneous threads, providing extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next generation shader programs. Stream out allows programmers to add more detail without having to re-render the entire pipeline. Geometry Shaders permit geometry creation and tessellation, which smoothes curved surfaces and enables more lifelike character animation, including realistic facial expressions and hair.

PNY Technologies offers a five year warranty (three years standard with two-year upgrade upon completion of registration form on PNY Web site) for its 8800 GTS 320MB edition.
