"Fremont, CA, - December 2, 2002 - Tyan® today launched the Tachyon G9700 PRO, the newest graphics card to utilize the ATI® RADEON 9700 PRO Visual Processing Unit (VPU). AGP 8X compatible, the Tachyon G9700 PRO is a leading graphics accelerator designed with more powerful capabilities – hardware monitoring, overclocking, and temperature control through special cooling.
The Tachyon G9700 PRO is the only graphics card on the market with hardware monitoring. The Tyan Graphics Monitor is a user-friendly system monitoring utility that allows the user to monitor and regulate fan, voltage, and temperature.
In addition, the Tachyon G9700 PRO can be overclocked nearly up to 400MHz and 385MHz on average – the fastest speed available today. With the appropriate cooling, the graphics card can run cool and stable with memory speeds approaching the limits of today's DDR memory technology.
