MSI Shows Off Upgradeable Graphics Card

`For years adorers of powerful graphics boards wished that they could only replace graphics chip and memory on their adapters without dumping the whole product. MicroStar International (MSI), a leading maker of computer components, showcased at Consumer Electronics Show a graphics card that may make dreams of some enthusiasts come true.

Microstar shows off its Geminium-Go! graphics card featuring two Mobile PCI Express Module (MXM) modules that employ a pair of Nvidia GeForce Go 6600 processors along with 512MB of memory in total. The graphics processing units (GPUs) work in multi-GPU SLI mode, thus, the graphics board achieves performance similar to the GeForce 6800 graphics cards. In case a proper power supply circuitries are employed, even two MXM modules with products like GeForce Go 7800 GTX may be installed for ultimate performance.’
