Pinnacle Micro launches MSI NX8800 GT graphics card


Pinnacle Micro has launched the MSI NX8800GT 512Mb graphics card, regarded as a "world first" thanks to its full Microsoft DirectX 10 support.

Shaun Welgemoed, MSI product manager at Pinnacle Micro, confirms that the new graphics card comes with full Microsoft DirectX 10 support. "It is the world’s first DirectX10 GPU with full Shader Model 4.0 support – and it delivers unrivaled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects."
The card is designed to run perfectly with the PCI Express bus architecture, which doubles the bandwidth of AGP 8X to deliver over 4GB/sec in both upstream and downstream video transfers.
Advanced technology provides the ultimate in viewing flexibility, as well as capabilities for multiple monitors.
“The MSI X8800GT delivers up to two times the performance of a single graphics card and is configured for a stunning gaming experience by allowing two cards to run in parallel. It is also able drive the industry’s largest and highest resolution flat-panel displays of up to 2560*1600,” says Welgemoed.
