GeCube's Booth

GECUBE launched the world's first dual VPU graphics card at CeBIT with the new GC-DU16XTDG3-E2. This rather small card comes with two Radeon X1600XT VPUs and is configured in CrossFire mode. You need not use a CrossFire capable motherboard since it only requires a single PCIe x16 graphics interface. With CrossFire enabled, gamers can enjoy better framerates and with CrossFire disabled, you can hook the card to four displays - giving you a wider view of your virtual desktop.

Enthusiasts building home theatre PCs would be pleased to know that GECUBE now offers a card with a direct HDMI output. This tiny card is based on the Radeon X1600PRO graphics engine and comes with 256MB of DDR2 memory. It supports ATI's AVIVO technology making it an ideal solution for viewing high definition movies on large visual units.

Silent cooling technology is also in GECUBE's agenda as they have discovered users getting increasingly frustrated with noisy fans. Here, they demonstrated their X1300LE graphics card with a fan-less cooler installed in AOpen's tiny small form factor PC. The half-height card is a perfect fit here.

For larger SFF PCs, you will be able to accommodate this full-height Radeon X1600PRO VPU graphics card.

GECUBE showcased a large variety of fan-less designs for systems requiring low noise output. The highest end solution showcased was one based on the Radeon X1600XT VPU that comes with two DVI outputs.
