Graphics card maker EVGA has announced what it claims is the fastest board around that's based on Nvidia's GeForce 7950 GT-based product. It also incorporates support for the HDCP copy-protection system beloved of high-definition content providers.
EVGA's e-GeForce 7950GT KO Superclocked card runs the GPU at 600MHz and the 512MB of GDDR 3 memory at 1.45GHz, the company said. The board provides a pair of dual-link DVI ports and can drive screens at up to 2,048 x 1,546 resolution. It also has an s-video port. Two DVI-to-VGA converters are included in the box for older displays.
HDCP is required to allow some HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc content to be played back at full HD resolution. Without the copy-protection system present, movies may be displayed at sub-standard resolutions.
The e-GeForce 7950GT KO Superclocked is available now for around €359 (£242). ®
