For NVIDIA, there was a great display of its current and upcoming technology sure to get any enthusiast or gamer drooling. At our first pass of the NVIDIA booth we came across a nice little display of a card NVIDIA is calling the GF100. This is a Fermi based card that supports DirectX 11 for robust graphics. Attached to the card was NVIDIA 3D Vision technology, which allows the user to experience rich graphics that immerse you into the content.
In addition to its desktop graphics, NVIDIA was showcasing some ION based netbooks, nettops, and all-in-one desktops, which bring the power of the ION platform to life. The units were running different game demos and video applications to show the power of the ION integrated graphics solution and how it powers computers to push rich content with little CPU usage, allowing for a great experience, with little to no jitter or issues during play.
NVIDIA also had on display its 3D Vision Surround display, which spans the desktop and programs across multiple displays for a more immersive experience when watching video or playing games. NVIDIA also had the 3D Vision Surround set up with 3D Vision goggles for a true life depth view of the content.
Finally for NVIDIA we were shown side by side comparisons of a new technology that runs on its hardware using CUDA called SimHD, which takes standard definition video and upscales the output to simulate high definition and enhance the clarity of the video. This allows you to view features in the video that you would not normally see with standard definition.
