Foxconn, the motherboard giant, has now ventured into manufacturing graphic cards. As of now they will be manufacturing graphic cards based on Nvidia’s chipsets. Foxconn will only be manufacturing the latest line up of Nvidia’s chipsets, the acclaimed GeForce 7 series GPUs. All the cards are PCI-Express and are RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant.
Vincent Yuan, general manger of Foxconn Channel Services Division said, "Foxconn has leveraged its expertise in the PC components business and worked closely with Nvidia to develop this complete range of graphics solutions." Well yea, Foxconn is a big name and reliable too. They have consistently been putting out quality components over a long period of time and we will not be surprised if their graphic cards turn out to be of the same caliber.
The top of the line enthusiast segment has three cards in the offering. The fastest single slot solution, the 7950GX2, the newly introduced 7950GT and the 7900GTX. The 7950GT is available in 256 and 512 MB of GDDR3 memory. The 7900GTX comes with 512 MB of GDDR3 and the 7950GX2 comes with 1 GB of GDDR3. As of now, no details have been mentioned of a factory over clocked version in their line up.
