I had a Gainward 4600 Golden Sample and it was a great card. It had dual-DVI and VIVO. No problems whatsoever.

I love my Gainward GF4 TI4400... best video card I have ever owned. I've heard some mixed reviews from others, but in my opinion Gainward rocks! Supposedly they use higher quality components than others including the ramdacs... but I base that on no solid info a friend simply told me so

One of my favorite cards of all time is my Gainward Geforce TI 200. Gainward makes very good cards. If I go nV ever again, Gainward would be my first choice.

I had a Gainward GeForce 3 and it was an excellent card. Good overclocker too.

it is a really good card, and is an EXCELLENT overclocker, Gainward uses nothing but the best quality stuff available.

my only gripe about Gainward is, it's in Europe, but they do have an office in the USA.

They ENCOURAGE overclocking, as long as you use their utility, "Expert tool" and it's a wonderful little program.

And even the Expertool program doesn't fully unlock the potential of their cards. Golden Sample versions typically overclock well beyond the maximums of Gainward's own program.

Another point is that Gainward are one of the firms at present that have stayed loyal to nVidia and not courted mistress Ati.

I wonder if they will either get the chips cheaper ( if they do they won't pass on the reduction ) , or better bin of gpu's ie the best ones ?

Me thinks it is unlikely, but who knows, nVidia know they market the Golden Sample versions of their cards so they may have some arrangement ???

Something to be aware of, will soon see of course.

Regards

We don’t have plan for games at this moment. The reasoning is:

Each gamer has his own preference on certain types of games he plays. To make a big bundle, you may also like one or two titles but you certainly will pay for the all. What we try to do is to provide you with the best hardware at the lowest possible cost, save you some money to buy the games you really want.



We are to release the product at the end of May and you should be able to find them on (internet) shelves in the first half of June.

that a reply by gainward!!! seem the 6800 ultra will be long to wait!!:argh::argh::argh::argh:

I don't think the Gainward card is going to come out late at all. Trust me even if it came out in Mid June it would be worth the wait because I have never had any problems with Gainwards cards. Sure they don't come with a bunch of useless games, but who cares they end up being coasters anyways. As long as the Hardware is Uber Quality thats all that matters and Gainward never dissapoints.
