Greater Value Than Ever BeforeOntario, Calif., July 15, 2008
- In response to recent market fluctuations, XFX is taking the history-making stance of offering up to $120 cash back to its dedicated technology-forward customers who purchased its GeForce GTX 280 and GeForce GTX 260 graphics cards between June 16, 2008 and July 11, 2008. This offer is available only to customers and purchases in the US and Canada. Rules and certain restrictions apply.
"Market conditions in recent days have caused the price of these two graphics cards to drop significantly," explains XFX USA President, Eddie Memon. "However these cards were just introduced to our customers a few weeks ago. We want to thank our customers for their continued loyalty, and also to reassure them that we are committed to them and to their ongoing satisfaction."
And, for those who have been wanting these cards but price has been a barrier, the new price structure is a big bonus. Both graphics cards harness the power of second generation unified architecture, SLI technology and top-of-the-line DirectX 10 support, creating a gaming "reality" that, thanks to blazing fast frame rates, is a truly in-your-face experience.
The GeForce 280 GTX features second generation NVIDIA® Unified Architecture that delivers 50% more gaming performance (compared to the first generation) thanks to 240 enhanced processor cores and a graphics clock of 602 MHz that provide incredible shading horsepower. The GeForce® 260 is no slouch, either, with 192 Processor Cores and a graphics clock of 576 MHz.
NVIDIA's new GPU PhysX™ technology renders convincing facial expressions, multiple ultra-high polygon characters in complex environments and convincing physical effects like weather and explosions. Both cards come NVIDIA PhysX®-Ready, however NVIDIA Phys drivers are required to experience in-game GPU PhysX acceleration.
NVIDIA CUDA™ technology and the new CUDA runtime for Windows Vista enables programmers to offload the most intensive processing tasks from their CPU to their graphics card(s), putting the power of up to 240 multi-threaded processor cores to work for you. From transcoding video or running Folding@home in the background while web surfing, GeForce® GTX 200 graphics cards deliver performance improvements of up to seven times a tradition CPU.
GigaThread™ Technology, Lumenex™ Engine, 16x Anti-aliasing Technology, and 128-bit floating point High Dynamic-Range (HDR) Lighting guarantees top-of-the-line performance right out of the box. OpenGL 2.1 support, Dual Dual-link DVI Support, PureVideo® HD Technology and dual-stream hardware acceleration rounds out the leading features.
