The Register meldt dat ATi vandaag haar Rage Fury MAXX op de markt heeft gezet. De MAXX heeft twee ATi Rage 128 Pro chips met ieder 32MB aan geheugen aan boord, goed voor 500MPix/sec. Hieronder het marketing lulverhaaltje:
ATI Technologies today launched its RAGE Fury MAXX graphics card aimed at hardcore gamers.
The device has two RAGE 128 Pro chips and 64MB memory on one 64MB board.
The Rage Fury MAXX boasts 500 megapixels per second to help power-hungry gamers destroy their on-screen opponents.
In the words of the Ontario-based manufacturer: "First person shooter games will be expanded and the level of background detail will dramatically improve."
"For example, long range weapons in Quake III will become much more effective as enemies that would have been impossible to distinguish in 800x600... Fans of strategy games will be able to view and manage their troops more effectively while flight simulator pilots will be able to better judge their flight patterns."
Described as the "top of the ladder for the serious gamer" by ATI, the board will be available this month from £189.®
