Asustek overclocked Radeon X1800XT graphics card to hit market in mid-December
Press release; Jessie Shen, DIGITIMES [Thursday 1 December 2005]

Asustek Computer recently introduced its EAX1800XT TOP graphics card, which incorporates ATI's flagship Radeon X1800XT VPU (video processing unit) to provide video capability needed for robust PC video systems. Availability is slated for the middle of December, with no suggested retail price available yet, according to the company.

Powered by ATI’s overclocked version of the X1800XT series, the EAX1800XT TOP runs at 700MHz in core speed and 1.6GHz in memory. The card adopts advanced visual technology standards, including Shader Model 3.0, High Dynamic Rendering (HDR) and support for high-resolution LCD up to 2560×1600, according to the company.

The bundled package for the EAX1800XT TOP will also incorporate the official game of “King Kong” the movie and an XitePad gamepad, which together is valued at close to US$100, said the company.
