XFX and Fatal1ty Debut New 7600GT Video Card


The first collaborative effort by gaming industry leader XFX and the world’s No. 1 ranked gamer, Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel debuted today. The 7600 GT Fatal1ty Professional Series Video Card is touted as quite possibly the fastest 7600 GT card in the world. The 7600 GT marks the first release in the XFX/Fatal1ty partnership announced earlier this year.

“This card proves that teaming XFX technology with the hardcore gamer’s demands results in performance that buyers literally haven’t seen before,” said Eddie Memon, Vice President of XFX. “With Fatal1ty doing his best to challenge our capabilities as a development team, and our efforts to impress and outperform his expectations, the card not only stuns visually, it delivers the goods in efficiency and state-of-the art performance. It is truly for gamers by gamers.”


The 7600 GT Fatal1ty Professional Series currently out-clocks Nvidia’s default speed by 14%. Better still, this is a performance overclocked product that features an affordable price that will appeal to all players. Best of all, with input from extreme gamer Fatal1ty, this card is a competition-ready piece of equipment that will satisfy the most serious gamer.


“The graphics card you use in gaming can make or break your performance, which is why I decided to work with XFX to come up with a product that really meets what a professional gamer needs,” explains Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel, about making XFX his choice for a collaborative partner. “I work hard to be the best at what I do and continue to improve my game. XFX feels the same about developing and manufacturing top quality products. This card shows what happens when a company listens to the end-user of their product, which is exactly what I wanted and what the buyer deserves.”


Unlike other cards on the market the 7600 GT utilizes XFX’s proprietary stealth heatpipe cooling technology, dubbed Silent But Deadly™. It runs without a standard fan but cools with more efficiency due to the passive distribution of heat from the GPU to the aluminum fins that are behind the video card. This spreads the heat into a wider surface area where it is air cooled and because air and dust are not forced through the heatsink, there are also reduced concerns of clogged heatsinks that may cause overheating in time.


Sporting the signature Fatal1ty brand, the 7600 GT Fatal1ty Professional Series Video Card by XFX also features high-definition video playback with up to 1080i resolution, is Microsoft® Windows Vista™ ready and True High Dynamic-Range (HDR) Rendering supports incredibly life-like PCI-Express graphics for best visual sharpness and clarity by improving lighting effects, shading, filtering, texturing, and blending. It’s SLI-ready, meaning users can double their performance by adding a second card.


Enthusiasts also enjoy the Dual-Link Technology, which enables digital output up to 2560x1600 for the largest and highest resolution flat panel displays, with Dual DVI capabilities plus a DVI to analog adapter so players can convert VGA output to a DVI connector. Another XFX-only feature U.S. buyers have is the Double Lifetime Warranty, which guarantees product performance for both the original and second owner.


The 7600 GT Fatal1ty Professional Series Video Card by XFX offers mind-warping speed, graphics so vivid reality pales in comparison and optimizes performance silently and effectively. To learn more, visit xfxforce.com.Source: XFX

For $179 sounds like a great deal. I Like the passive cooling heatpipe system. Two in sli for the price of my X1900XTX is awsome, it just took to long to come up with it.

Another lame card...

I just dont see how the uber man of gaming can put his mark on something supposedly low end. Albeit, $179.99 isnt a bad deal for a middling card, its just not something I see "serious" gamers and fraggers looking to buy. Sure, in Sli its equal to one card, but I dont think it warrants a premium over typical 7600 GTs.

You know what else sucks about this, he put his name on a card that uses a 128-Bit interface.
::dies:: I know he doesnt use that type of shite in his own system.

Looks like a nice card if it is priced right. The 7600GT is a nice mid-range card. Performs very well in everything yet doesn't cost an arm and a leg. XFX's 600/1600 version which isn't passively cooled goes for $130, so I would put this one in the $150 range, but that is only a guess. It probably won't be able to be beat in the price range.

Man, I wish I could sell out too...

But Im sure your single X1900XTX would easily outperform 2x 7600GT's ;)

If my 7900GS can beat out 7600GT sli, then a X1900XTX will make it seem like some onboard gpu.

@ ktr Is that your wish list for your next rig?

7600GT is a 1337 midrange card, its very powerful for its price. And its not much more expensive than the other counterparts. The 7600GT will play most games anyway without any problems. The card probably will come in a very cheap setup though (why doesnt he like ATI?)

Because NVidia(more specifically XFX) pulled a giant dump truck full of money up to the front of his house and it was slightly bigger than the one ATI pulled up with.

He can't. He just became the Number 1 ranked gamer in the world by pretending to play games.

Casheti,

Thanks for your email.

That is a very odd question. But I will answer it anyway. No, Johnathan
