Taiwan's Triplex has released an upgraded version of its MX-440 VGA card from 4x to 8x AGP. The TX-680 AGP 2D/3D graphics and video accelerator incorporates the new GeForce 4 MX440-8X graphics processing unit as well as 64MB of SGRAM, a new memory standard dedicated to graphics functions. NVIDIA specifies a standard memory clock of 500MHz for the chip, but Triplex provides 600MHz as the standard memory clock on the TX-680. Triplex Millennium Silver is distributed in Australia by Oxygen.
The Triplex TX-680 (NV18) will be available from October 15 and carries a recommended retail price of $239.99.
