    SAPPHIRE to launch new ULTIMATE graphics solution

    SAPPHIRE Technology has just announced that in addition to the new HD 2600 and HD 2400 series of graphics accelerators scheduled for release in July, the range will include the new completely passively cooled SAPPHIRE HD 2600 XT ULTIMATE Edition.

    SAPPHIRE’s ULTIMATE Editions are renowned for the key features of overclocking for enhanced performance and silent running. The low power consumption of this new generation of GPU’s allows a totally passive cooling solution to be used whilst achieving top levels of performance in it class.

    The SAPPHIRE HD 2600 XT ULTIMATE Edition features the latest unified shader architecture with 24 shader pipelines, a 128-bit memory bus and high speed GDDR3 memory. Other family members include the SAPPHIRE HD 2600 PRO with a similar architecture but using GDDR2 memory. Also available are the SAPPHIRE HD 2400 XT and SAPPHIRE HD 2400 PRO, cost effective solutions with 8 unified shader pipelines and a 64-bit memory interface using GDDR3 and GDDR2 memory respectively.

    Both of the HD 2600 and HD 2400 series’ also incorporate the latest ATI Avivo™ HD Video & Display Technology. An exciting new feature is the built in hardware UVD – a dedicated Unified Video Decoder that accelerates the decoding of Blu-ray™ and HD DVD content with dramatically reduced load on the system CPU, making even the low-end cards in the series ideal for media centre applications.

    Two Dual Link DVI outputs are provided on all models. HDMI users are supported with another new feature that Multi-Channel 5.1 Audio is integrated onboard with the graphics output to provide true audio and video output via an HDMI adapter for direct connection to an HDMI ready TV.

    Developed to natively support the latest applications using Microsoft Direct X® 10 and Shader Model 4.0, for a whole new generation of performance, this series brings new meaning to the Windows Vista™ Premium Experience.

    SAPPHIRE is already shipping its new flagship model the SAPPHIRE HD 2900 XT. Other products in the family are scheduled for delivery in July.

    Good stuff. When I hear ultimate, there is such fine finality to the word. I bet this card can last awhile though with all the new stuff coming out, I wonder what the price shall be.
