When asked about Palit Multimedia, most folk will say "just another retail manufacturer", "are they sticker stampers?" and will have no idea about the size or scope of the company. What makes things really interesting is that Palit is one of largest graphics card manufacturers in the world, and according to information we have, largest manufacturer of nVidia graphics cards.
