Gainward, including Gainward FX Powerpack Ultra/1000 Golden Sample on GeForce FX 5800 Ultra and κΰπςΰ Gainward FX Powerpack Pro/660 DVI/TV on NV34.
The former has been repeatedly mentioned in these news: fully-fledged NV30, 128Mb DDR-II, 500/500 (1000) MHz clock speeds; bundled with IEEE1394, a sound card, headphones, etc.
Gainward FX Powerpack Pro/660 DVI/TV features NV34 GPU, 128Mb RAM, 250/200 (400) MHz clock speed.
As reviews are to follow, we introduce these photos for now:

NVIDIA acts simpler from this angle, having made nForce2 to support this bus from the start. Nevertheless, it continues to release new steppings of it with improved specifications.
Currently there are two nForce2 steppings popular in the market: A2 and A3. However, we got to know about another one A1, being actually a version of C1. It seems NVIDIA is also to make thorough preparations for 400MHz FSB products.
It turned so that EPoX 8RDA3+ already bases on nForce2 C1. Having set VDD to 1.65V and used DDR460 memory, overclockers have succeeded in achieving stability with up to 230MHz FSB!
ABIT NF7-S Rev. 2.0 is said to be another mobo on this revision. It work stably at 228MHz FSB in dual-channel mode at chipset voltage 1.7V and Vdimm 2.9V with Twinmos PC 3200 modules on Winbond BH5 chips.

Why 11600? Quite simply because the number of pipe is doubled to reach 8, just like the band-width memory which passes to 32 Go/S because of a bus 256 bits GDDR-II to 500 MHz. And two times 5800 = 11600."

17" FlexScan L557 features SXGA (1280x1024) panel with 0.264mm pixel pitch and is to replace FlexScan L565-A of May 2002. Max. brightness is 250cd/m², contrast 500:1, horizontal and vertical viewing angles 170°, response time 25ms. Fine Contrast feature provides image adjustment.
The model has analog and DVI-D connectors. Line scan is 24.8kHz 80kHz (analog) and 31.0kHz 64kHz (digital); frame scan 50Hz 75Hz (analog) and 59Hz 61Hz (digital). The monitor is designed in austere style with 14mm borders and stereo speakers (2x1W).
Energy consumption is <45W (<2W in standby). Dimensions 368x198x375mm, weight 5.6kg, approximate price in Japan $500.
18.1" FlexScan L695 is to replace FlexScan L685 of December 2001. The newer model differs by 4G semiconductor logic providing ActiveShot for "picture in picture" in dual-monitor configurations and 90° rotation.
Dot pitch is 0.2805mm, max. brightness 250cd/m², contrast 400:1, horizontal and vertical viewing angles 170°, response time 40ms. The monitor has analog and DVI-I connectors. Line scan is 30.0kHz 82kHz (analog) and 30.0kHz 81kHz (digital); frame scan 49Hz 86Hz (analog) and 59Hz 60Hz (digital). Energy consumption <45W (<2W standby). Dimensions 399x203x404mm, weight 8.0kg. Approximate price $1650.
