CyberPower first to announce gaming PCs with new Nvidia Fermi graphics

With Nvidia set to officially launch its new Fermi graphics card architecture tonight, CyberPower is making sure it's first with its announcement of desktops that will come with the new cards. Not surprisingly, the company's lines that will sport the latest Nvidia cards—Black Pearl, Black Mamba Fang Series and Gamer Xtreme 3D—are the same that are rocking the new Intel Core i7-980X six-core processor.

With Nvidia set to officially launch its new Fermi graphics card architecture tonight, CyberPower is making sure it's first with its announcement of desktops that will come with the new cards. Not surprisingly, the company's lines that will sport the latest Nvidia cards—Black Pearl, Black Mamba Fang Series and Gamer Xtreme 3D—are the same that are rocking the new Intel Core i7-980X six-core processor.

The Fermi cards will finally see Nvidia catching up to ATI with DirectX 11 support and also can power Nvidia's 3D Vision Surround platform. CyberPower buyers can choose between the GeForce GTX 470 and GeForce GTX 480 cards, and will be able to configure systems with two or three boards in SLI configuration.

It's interesting to note that on the Black Mamba Fang choosing either of the new Fermi cards is actually a less expensive option than the ATI Radeon HD 5870, though on the Black Pearl and Gaming Extreme, only the GTX 470 is cheaper. Hopefully we'll find out more details about the Fermi boards after the launch announcement later tonight.
