EVGA Superclocked GF 8800

Video card maker EVGA today unveiled custom-tuned versions of NVIDIA's GeForce 8800-series boards. The KO ACS3 Edition cards, shipping in high-end GTX and slightly reduced GTS models, each sport a custom cooling system that gives enough headroom for the company to "superclock" every card beyond NVIDIA's official speeds: the GTX sees a major increase from 575 to 626MHz at its core and a boost to an effective 2GHz memory speed, while the ostensibly more modest GTS card sees a still greater leap from 500 to 580MHz core speed and a memory boost from 1.6 to 1.7GHz.

The increase is dramatic enough to set records, according to the company's tests: a pair of 8800 GTX KO ACS3 cards operating in concert has contributed to a 3DMark06 score of over 24,000 points, marking one of the highest-ever rankings in the history of the highly competitive benchmark. Both cards are now available and ship at slight premiums of $480 for the GTS model and $650 for the GTX. [Via I4U]
