Maingear SHIFT gets Fermi video card option

Earlier this month Maingear announced that its suitably awesome SHIFT personal super computer was getting the new and wonderful Intel Core i7-980X CPU. The SHIFT computer is now getting another new and powerful option to choose from.

Maingear has announced that the SHIFT personal supercomputer can be ordered with the new NVIDIA Fermi video cards as options. The machine can be fitted with the NVIDIA GTX 480 and GTX 470 video cards.

The new video cards are DX11 compliant and have twice as many CUDA cores as older NVIDIA cards offered. The SHIFT can be optioned with the Fermi-based cards online or over the phone. I don't even want to think about how expensive the SHIFT fitted with the i7-980X and Fermi video cards would be.
