- Gainward's [email protected] Roundup

There's no doubting Gainward make awesome graphics cards (particularly within their Golden Sample range), but did you know they cover a bunch of other multimedia products too? Under the [email protected] tag, HEXUS take a look at a triplet of products from Gainward today. Namely the TV2Go (a funky little USB TV tuner), the Music2Go (a nifty looking 7.1 USB soundcard), and finally a pumpin' pair of SoundXplosion 5.1 Headphones which get the big thumbs up.


Gainward. What products of theirs do you think of straight away? Their Golden Sample graphics cards, right? Maybe the £590 watercooled 6800 Ultra I reviewed earlier in the year? Past the graphics cards, though, are you aware that Gainward also sell a bunch of other PC components, under the [email protected] umbrella? I'd hazard a guess that not many of you are.


I've looked at one of those components before, their [email protected] 7.1 not doing too badly and in hindsight it probably deserves a slightly higher score, recent drivers enabling excellent stereo output for music using the high quality Wolfson DAC. Gainward aren't all about the graphics and they do have other tricks up their sleeves.
