Features:

  • 65nm Process Technology: Delivers higher performance through blazing clock rates.   
  • RoHS Compliant: As a citizen of the global village, GIGABYTE exert ourselves to be a pioneer in environment care. Give the whole of Earth a promise that our products do not contain any of the restricted substances in concentrations and applications banned by the RoHS Directive, and are capable of being worked on at the higher temperatures required for lead free solder. One Earth and GIGABYTE Cares!
  • Dual-link DVI: Able to drive two of the industry's largest and highest resolution flat-panel displays up to 2560x1600.
  • CineFX 4.0 Engine: Through CineFX 4.0 engine that allows developers to create unique 3D game features and effects in both game animation and high-definition video. Gamers can get plus benefit from CineFX 4.0 that streamlines the creation of complex visual effects.
  • Intellisample™ 4.0:  The industry’s fastest antialiasing delivers ultra-realistic visuals, with no jagged edges, at lightning-fast speeds. Visual quality is taken to new heights through a new rotated grid sampling pattern, advanced 128 Tap sample coverage, 16x anisotropic filtering, and support for transparency supersampling and multisampling.
  • OpenGL 2.0® Optimizations and Support: Ensure top-notch compatibility and performance for all OpenGL 2.0 application.
  • Microsoft® DirectX® 10: World's first DirectX 10 GPU with full Shader Model 4.0 support delivers unparalleled levels of graphics realims and film-quality effects.
  • HDCP Support:  High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is a form of copy protection technology designed to prevent transmission of non-encrypted high-definition content as it travels across DVI or HDMI digital connections.
  • GigaThread™ Technology: Massively multi-threaded architecture supports thousands of independent simultaneous threads, providing extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next generation shader programs.
  • Quantum Effects™ Technology:  Advanced shader processors architected for physics computation enable a new level of physics effects to be simulated and rendered on the GPU--all while freeing the CPU to run the game engine and AI.
  • PureVideo™ HD:  Available on HD DVDs and Blu-ray discs, high-definition movies are bringing an exciting new video experience to PC users. NVIDIA® PureVideo™ HD technology lets you enjoy cinematic-quality HD DVD and Blu-ray movies with low CPU utilization and power consumption, allowing higher quality movie playback and picture clarity. PureVideo HD technology provides a combination of powerful hardware acceleration, content security, and integration with movie players, plus all the features found in PureVideo.
  • Ultra Durable 2 -Designed with Top Quality Highly Efficient Components
  • Ultra Durable 2: Using high quality components on graphics cards is the key factor for having a long lasting, stable and reliable product.
