XFX, AMD announce team-up
PINE announced on Tuesday that its graphics division, XFX, is partnering with AMD to offer ATI Radeon-powered graphics cards, including the company's HD 4000-series GPUs. Up until now, XFX only offered NVIDIA-based graphics cards, but it's believed NVIDIA's recent GPU quality issues and the price cuts on its GTX line of cards are what's causing many graphics card makers to turn elsewhere to restore their margins.
The first XFX products based on ATI's Radeon HD 4000-series cards will launch early on in 2009. As with all XFX products, the card will give users the option to install customized drivers and include factory overclocking support.
