GIGABYTE Unleashes 3D1-68GT VGA Card

| Video Cards News | Posted: Jul 12, 2005 2:38 am

GIGABYTE have made headlines today with the release of their new GV-3D1-68GT, a second attempt at dual-GPU grunt from the one card. Unlike their first 3D1 card to enter the market a while ago (which so happened to turn out as a bit of a dissapointment), they've made some nice refinements to this one and also used two faster 6800GT GPUs on the card for a very significant performance boost.

 

GIGABYTE state in their official announcement that this card will return some pretty darn impressive 3DMark scores, how's over 20K in 3DMark03 or 10K in 05 sound? As to whether there's really a place in the market for this beastly offering now that 78GTX is doing the rounds, is another cup of tea however.

 

Further details within GIGABYTE's official PR folks.

 

Taipei, Taiwan 11th July, 2005 - GIGABYTE Technology Co. Ltd., a world-leading VGA card manufacturer, today introduced the much anticipated GV-3D1-68GT, the most powerful and technically advanced GIGABYTE graphics accelerator card to date with a monster score of more than 20,000 in 3Dmark03, and just under 10,000 in 3Dmark05. As the successor to the legendary GV-3D1 that debuted at the beginning of the year, the GV-3D1-68GT is designed around proprietary technology from GIGABYTE that harnesses two GPUs together in a single VGA card SLI configuration. Improvements to the new GIGABYTE 3D1 VGA card-series flagship include dual 16 pixel pipelines from two GeForce 6800GT GPUs, quad-view support for up to four displays at a time, and compatibility with a somewhat wider range of motherboards than the initial 3D1 VGA card offered.
