Looks like ATI has the worlds first 512mb card!
February 23, 2005 -- Gamers from around the world are invited
to join ATI Technologies Inc. (TSX: ATY, NASDAQ: ATYT) and its marketing partners at the Ultimate LAN, held in association with the Texas Gaming Festival in Dallas, February 25th to 27th. In addition to offering gamers three days of top-notch gaming, the event will include an overclocking demonstration and a PC modding event. Attendees will get the opportunity to preview the world's first 512MB gaming card and one lucky gamer will even get to take one home.

Participating in events like this gives us the opportunity to find out what gamers want and need for competitive gaming, said Rich Heye, Vice
President and GM, Desktop Discrete Products, ATI. “And to say thanks for supporting ATI, we are giving attendees at this event an opportunity to
check out the world's first 512MB gaming cards before we send them out to our software partners for development of next-generation games.

In addition, world champion overclockers will test their mettle and their
silicon to set new world records. Top overclockers Eric Kronies, Charles
Wirth and Sami Makinen will also take a break from overclocking their own
systems to answer attendees system-tweaking questions and offer tips for
overclocking PCs for ultimate performance.

Attendees will vote on whose PC at the event is most in need of an
overhaul. The lucky winner will have his or her PC rebuilt by modding
experts using the latest technology from ATI and its partners.

And as is the norm at ATI-sponsored LAN parties, participants can expect
lots of giveaways and prizes, including high-end desktop and notebook PCs powered by ATI hardware. Other sponsors of the event include ABIT, AMD, ArenaNet, ATARI, Corsair, Gigabyte, Kingston, LG, NCSoft, OCZ, Running with Scissors, Sapphire and UBISOFT.
