The VGA card maker is packaging a copy of Sid Meier’s Civilization IV with its Radeon X1650 Pro Silent–Pipe II graphics card.
The bundle enables strategy-game enthusiasts to concentrate on playing God while their PC is kept cool with Gigabyte’s silent thermal technology, the company says.
The graphics card is said to incorporate advanced visual technology standards, including Shader Model 3.0, High Dynamic Rendering (HDR) and Single Dual-link support for high-resolution display up to 2560x1600 to provide the video capability needed for robust HD gaming systems.
In addition, the X1650 Pro features Gigabyte’s 0dB thermal design with Silent-Pipe II technology, which draws cool air in through a new proprietary front-flow thermal module, effectively removing heat from the heat sink on the VGA card.
Gigabyte claims, with the natural convection generated by Silent-Pipe II technology, the card ensures a quieter gaming environment and guarantees ultra-stable system operation, allowing gamers to play without fear of hardware malfunctions.
After all, that’s the last thing you need when you’re about to smite your enemies.
