These two new graphics cards from GECUBE certainly stand out from the crowd, being that they have HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) support. This basically means that the cards can output both high-definition video as well as multi-channel digital audio simultaneously via a single cable. The interface can also be converted to your usual DVI output if so required.

This is something fairly new to the video card industry but i'm sure we'll be seeing HDMI implemented on more GFX cards natively in the future to come. (Soundstorm on a Geforce 8 anyone?!)

Grab GECUBE's official announcement for more info folks.

The HDMI is an audio-video standard with sufficient bandwidth to accommodate both uncompressed and high-definition digital video and multi-channel audio format using a single cable wire between a source device such as a DVD player or a set-top-box to a high-definition television (HDTV) or HD-compatible device for displaying video. According to IDC and Silicon Image estimates, there will be over 15 million HDMI-enabled digital televisions at the end of 2005, growing to nearly 50 million units at the end of 2007.
