UPDATE: Correcting the statement, adding clarifications.

Gainward, a supplier of graphics cards and a subsidiary of Palit Microsystems, said Tuesday that it would be able to ship Nvidia’s next-generation high-end graphics cards on the date of the formal launch on the 8th of November, 2006, following the announcement about the recall of the boards featuring GeForce 8800 GTX graphics processor.

“Gainward proudly announces that due to close relationship and cooperation with Nvidia, Gainward engineers had been able to correct the error on the boards from the first allocation, meaning that Gainward will start shipping out Bliss 8800GTX [from its European headquarters in Munich, Germany] to launch partners before the official launch date,” a statement by the company reads.

On Monday Nvidia Corp. confirmed that some of the early-made GeForce 8800 GTX graphics boards that were built by Nvidia’s contract manufacturer had a production flaw – wrong resistor value. Nvidia stated that it planned to replace all the boards that had the incorrect resistor value, but denied to estimate whether the problem was wide-spread. The graphics developer also stressed that the GeForce 8800 GTS graphics cards – cut-down flavours of the model 8800 GTS – were not affected by the issue.

Other media reports also claim that Asustek Computer and XFX will also be able to start selling the GeForce 8800 GTS graphics cards starting from the 8th of November, 2006.

The GeForce 8800 GTX and the GeForce 8800 GTS are the new flagship offerings from Nvidia Corp. that support DirectX 10 application programming interface.
