XFX Begins Selling Additional Accessories for Graphics Cards
XFX, a brand of Pine Technologies, did not have high-profile presence at this CeBIT show, unlike in previous years, but it did demonstrate some interesting products that may even be considered as unique.
Many end-users and reviewers have been complaining about the lack of certain cables and converters inside graphics cards’ boxes. In case there is no cable bundled, consumers need to go to a store and acquire one, which is hardly comfortable. Moreover, some of the cables may not be available, which means that not all capabilities of a graphics adapter can be utilized at all.
XFX has found a very logical solution: the company plans to start selling special kits with necessary converters and cables for those, who need them. Such kits should be available from the same source as graphics cards, which should ensure they are easy to get.
In fact, it is somewhat regrettable that the company which sells its graphics cards at a premium price since they operate at clock-speeds higher than normal cannot supply enough cables and converters with the product itself, but plans to sell additional accessories separately.
Obviously, XFX continues to bring Nvidia GeForce- and Nvidia nForce-based products onto the market. At CeBIT 2008 the company showcased its GeForce 9600 GT along with nForce 780i SLI.
