Asus -

Asus just released the new EN8800GT/HTDP/1G, the first 8800GT featuring 1GB of Qimonda GDDR3 memory. This card was released to provide the necessary graphics and memory power that gamers and other users alike will need when using high resolutions. The extra memory will also enhance the DirectX 10 performance of the 8800GT GPU according to Asus. A program called SmartDoctor will enable users to overclock their shader clocks by up to 10%. The 1G card also features a new heatsink, called the Glaciator Fansink, which is supposed to keep the GPU over 7°C cooler than the reference cooler, even when the card is 10% overclocked. "We are glad that Qimonda could offer ASUS this ultimate memory solution, which enables us to offer this leading product for the graphic card market", said Robert Feurle, Vice President of Business Unit Graphics at Qimonda. Exclusive to the 1GB card, Asus will be releasing the ASUS GamerOSD, a real-time overclocking utility, that will enable gamers to overclock their card in the middle of a game, to deliver the performance needed immediately. Additionally, it also provides users with the option to record live gaming action.
