XFX has announced the world's first overclocked GeForce 8800-series video cards, with XXX versions of both GeForce 8800 GTX and 8800 GTS.
The top-end GeForce 8800 GTX XXX Edition is overclocked from the standard 575/1800MHz clocks to a pretty decent 630/2000MHz, while the GeForce 8800 GTS XXX Edition has been overclocked from 500/1600MHz to 550/1800MHz.
NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 GTX set the world on fire with its blistering performance at the start of November, and was probably the most anticipated video card launch over the last few years. If you haven't had the chance to check out our 8800 GTX review

Up until now, it seemed like NVIDIA was preventing its partners from overclocking GeForce 8800-series video cards. Earlier this week, sources close to OCZ
suggested that the company would speed screen its upcoming GeForce 8800-series video cards and leave the tweaking to the end user without voiding their warranty.
Both of XFX's new XXX Edition GeForce 8800-series cards will be available to buy at Scan in limited quantities over the coming days. The 8800 GTS XXX Edition is listed at a reasonably respectable £364.11 including VAT
, while the 8800 GTX XXX Edition is listed at a stomach churning £528.61 including VAT
