W00t! This is a great day for PC gamers looking for the absolute best and fastest graphics cards on the planet. We talked a few days ago about NVIDIA taking the cuffs off overclocking the G80 graphics cards, but boy I didn’t think we would see the cards this quickly.

XFX seems to be poised to be the first to market with their grisly XXX line now extended to cover both the 8800 GTX and the 8800 GTS. A stock 8800 GTX has a 575 MHz core clock and a 1.8GHz memory clock. The flaming hot 8800 GTX XXX will have a core clock of 630 MHz and a whopping 2.0 GHz memory clock.The 8800 GTX stock clocks are 500 MHz core and 1.6 GHz memory with the XXX version clocked to a core speed of 550 MHz and a memory clock of 1.8 GHz. Both the 8800 GTX XXX and the 8800 GTS XXX have optimized card bios’ to optimize gaming on the overclocked cards. All of the XFX cards are tested before they leave the factory to be sure they are stable at these higher clock speeds.
