[XFX] ATI Launch Press Release + Info

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys

I am sure most of you already have seen the rumours last week and the Press release this morning.......

"Today XFX announced that it is partnering with AMD. The collaboration will incorporate the award-winning ATI Radeon™ HD 4000 series GPUs into XFX’s already impressive line of extreme performance graphics cards.

“We are delighted as this partnership allows us to incorporate the current and future AMD graphics technology into our future graphics card designs, and enables our R&D teams to develop an even wider range of graphics products for our worldwide customers,†said Michael Chiu, Chairman and CEO of Pine Technology Holdings.

“In the world of PC gaming, XFX is synonymous with the extreme performance that enthusiast’s crave,†said Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager, Graphics Product Group, AMD. “Their decision to partner with AMD and launch AMD GPU-based XFX graphics cards speaks to the level of excellence achieved by the ATI Radeonâ„¢ HD 4000 series.â€

XFX will debut its first ATI Radeon™ HD 4000 series-based cards in early 2009. The XFX-partnered Radeon™ products will come with all of the popular features that XFX is known for, including XFX’s unparalleled 5-Star support, access to customized drivers, and factory overclocked XXX series.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
As so many of you have been asking i can share some early info with you, I can tell you that the first round of Cards will be launched in Early January 2009.
There will 4 - 6 SKUS at first, Exact specs I am unsure of at present ( Will let you know more on this when it becomes available), but I can tell you that the 4870 is in there, the 4850 will be most likely also, down to 4350 and possibly 4650, although unsure as yet on this one.

The PCB will be BLACK, as many of you wanted, but the DVI connectors will be RED, very cool. These cards will be the first to be launched with a NEW style Driver CD - It checks your model and then checks our system to see if any new updates are there for you - You can register from it also, in 3 Easy steps, just need to give Email, Password, Serial and region, and its all done from the Driver CD, alot of work has gone into this, to try and make it easier for you guys.

Well thats all i have for now, but any new updates i will be sure to pass your way.......

Take care guys
regards

XFX

Quite an awesome partnership. Caught everyone off by surprise . Does it also mean that you're inevitably dropping nVidia too, or...?

I have another question, will they continue to have Nvidia cards? And will you continue your lifetime warranty on the amd card that you have on nvidia?
