Diamond Multimedia Launches New Diamond Radeon X800 GTO

High-End Gaming Graphics Card Ships With Newly Designed Overclocking Utility by Diamond

(Chatsworth, CA) - Diamond Multimedia (, a leading manufacturer of PC graphics cards, sound cards and communications products, today announced the company has launched the Diamond Viper X800 GTO, which features the ATI Radeon X800 GTO graphics chip set with 256 MB of GDDR3 memory, giving gamers a truly immersive experience by delivering precise, realistic texturing effects adding ultimate depth and realism to games.

The Viper X800 GTO combines a powerful 12-pipe 3D engine with 256-bit memory interface and up to 1.18 GHz memory data-rate for truly outstanding performance on essential benchmarks and across the full range of games on the market today. It features an efficient single slot design and ATI's unique image technology, including 3DcTM, SmartShaderTM HD, VideoShaderTM HD and HyperZTM HD. It has full-featured multimedia support for digital and analog displays, including HDTV, making it a perfect complement to Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition.

"Diamond is including a unique overclocking utility called "Diamond Tools" to the X800 GTO. This tool will further separate Diamond from the other ATI partners, "said Diamond President Bruce Zaman. "This product introduction is the perfect opportunity to launch a tool that will eventually be included with virtually all of our video cards."

"Diamond Tools" is a new video overclocking utility designed by Diamond that will be included in the Viper X800 GTO. Unlike any video utility available, this tool allows for overclocking of the video card through the use of a 3D renderer that scans for artifacts and monitors the effects of environmental and GPU temperatures. It then automatically modifies the GPU, video RAM and fan speeds to provide optimum video performance without degradation to video quality it produces. This tool will be available for Diamond card owners to download at the Diamond website.

The Radeon X800 GTO is a higher end graphics card and is targeted to serious gamers who want a superior gaming experience. It will ship with MSRP of $249.99.
