ELSA Boards Help Resellers Maximise PCI Margin Thursday 7 June 2001 PDF Print THEALE, 6 June 2001 - Graphics board and internet access vendor ELSA believes the new chip technology and multi-screen capabilities of its NVIDIA based GeForce2 MX 400 GLADIAC 511 TwinView PCI graphics board will deliver an improved gaming experience to those wishing to upgrade PCs with low-end built in graphics or older legacy PCs. UK marketing manager, Peter Griffin claims, "The market is crying out for quality PCI products and now resellers can deliver a state of the art GPU with the added benefit of multi-screen working at an aggressive price point." According to analysts Chart-Track, PCI boards made up around 40% of the graphics board market in May. Griffin continues, "Its great to see a PCI product brought to the market with all these features. Existing PCI products don't offer the MX 400 GPU, let alone real Twin View capability" The ELSA GLADIAC 511 TwinView PCI is priced at £99.99 inc VAT, has two VGA ports for dual screen working and a TV-Out facility that allows the user to play games or watch DVD movies using a normal TV screen. Equipped with 32MB RAM the board allows enhanced visual display, due to NVIDIA Shading Rasterizer (NSR) and per-pixel shading technologies with a second-generation transform and lighting engine. In addition to universal drivers for Windows 98, Windows ME and Windows 2000, the ELSA Gladiac 511 TwinView PCI comes with the software DVD decoder, ELSAmovie 2000, Pro Rally 2001, Ultima Online Renaissance and 3D Mark 2001 gaming titles and is covered by a three year warranty.
