One of NVIDIA's lesser-known partners is GALAXY Technology, formed in 1994 by a couple of (perhaps disgruntled?) ex-employees of industry giant PC Partner.
GALAXY specialises in releasing overclocked-out-of-the-box NVIDIA SKUs all the way through from 8400 GS to GeForce 8800 Ultra.
However, we now hear that GALAXY has been boxed up and been put on a pallet, bought and paid for. Rather, the egregiously bad allusion refers to Palit purchasing GALAXY Technology.
GALAXY is relatively strong in eastern Europe and Russia; Palit isn't, so we can see the reasoning behind the acquisition. Palit will benefit from GALAXY's overclocking mojo, too.
What'll change? Nothing in the short term, of course, but we should see a broader range of GALAXY-branded cards in the UK.
Ever owned a GALAXY product? Was it good, was it bad? Let us know in the forums.
