ZOTAC Announces GeForce GT 640 and 630 ZONE Editions
Some people just like having a quiet computer, especially if it is for a home entertainment system. ZOTAC is taking care of HTPC users thanks to its two new GeForce GT cards. The ZOTAC GeForce GT 640 and 630 ZONE Edition cards feature a passive cooler while still delivering more than enough performance for the average user. The GeForce GT 640 can deliver smooth playback at 4K resolutions (up to 4096x2160), which should keep you satisfied for years to come. The GT 640 can also handle some video conversions and transcoding thanks to the NVEnc video encoding engine. CUDA support on the GT 640 will help speed up video editing in compatible programs, plus the NVIDIA Surround technology means you do not have to be limited to a single screen.
The GeForce GT 630 ZONE Edition, on the other hand, is for the user who does not need 4K video performance but still wants to get some improvement for their dollar. Both the GT 640 and 630 have a DVI-I, DVI-D, and mini-HDMI port, DirectX 11 support, and require no external power connectors. Both the ZOTAC GeForce GT 640 and 630 ZONE Editions should be available shortly, although no price was mentioned.
