MSI showed off the MSI Geminium-VIII graphics card at Computex 2005. One of the most interesting aspects of the Geminium VIII is that it uses ATI's Rialto bridge chip to offer both the PCI Express and AGP interface.

The Geminium-VIII graphics card utilizes high performance ATi Radeon X800XL chipset and supports the full speed operation interface (AGP 8X and PCI 16X), so that transmission speed for compatibility will not be sacrificed for simulation or switching.

MSI Geminium VIII product information:
1. Powered by ATi RADEONTM X800XL Extreme VPU, 16 Pipelines
2. 256MB DDR3 Graphic Memory
3. Core Freq.: 400MHz; Memory Freq.: 980MHz
