Foxconn’s high-end graphics cards are spearheaded by the FV-N795M4D2-OD, which is powered by dual NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GX2 GPUs on one single card, creating arguably the world’s highest performance single-slot graphics solution with unsurpassed levels of performance in today’s most demanding 3D games. With support for NVIDIA SLI and a whopping 1.0 GB of high-speed GDDR3 memory, the FV-N795M4D2-OD offers the kind of performance levels once thought only possible with dual card set-ups. The card also supports Dual-Link Display outputs with resolutions of up to 2560 x 1600, Microsoft DirectX 9.0c Shader Model 3.0 and OpenGL API, as well as Dual Dual –Link DVI-I and HDTV-Out connectors. What’s more, it offers the most power hungry extreme gamers the almost unbelievable prospect of a future upgrade path to Quad SLI set-ups.

Another high-end solution well-suited to the needs of enthusiasts is the FV-N79GM3D2-HP, which is based on the NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GT GPU and supports 512 MB GDDR3 memory, PureVideo HD Support, Full HDCP Support and NVIDIA SLI set ups. It boasts a Dual-Link Display output with 2560 x 1600 resolution, support for Microsoft DirectX 9.0c, SM 3.0 and OpenGL API, as well as Dual Dual-Link DVI-I and HDTV-Out connectors. The FV-N79GM2D2-HP offers the same features, but with 256 MB of GDDR3 memory.

Foxconn’s mainstream offerings are led by the FV-N76TM2D2, which is based on the GeForce 7600GT GPU and supports 256 MB of GDDR3 memory running at 1400MHz. Other mainstream solutions include the FV-N76SM2DT and the FV-N76SM2DT, both of which are based on the GeForce 7600GS GPU along with GeForce 7300GT-Based FV-N73TM3DT/2DT. Like their higher-end cousins, these mid-range offerings all support high-performance gaming through NVIDIA SLI™ technology, and offer the opportunity for budget-conscious gamers to create a much-craved dual graphics card set up.

Entry-level markets are addressed through the GeForce 7300LE-based FV-N73EM2DT/1DT and 7100GS based FV-N71SM2DT/1DT, these solutions bring rich feature-sets to value markets, and include support for Microsoft DirectX 9.0 and SM 3.0 to ensure full compatibility with the forthcoming Microsoft Vista operating system, not to mention support for high definition video and the latest 3D games.
