Features:

  • NVIDIA® unified architecture Fully unified shader core dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics, or pixel shading operations, delivering up to 2x the gaming performance of prior generation GPUs
  • Full Microsoft® DirectX® 10 support DirectX 10 GPU with full Shader Model 4.0 support delivers unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects
  • NVIDIA PhysX™ technology GeForce GPU support for NVIDIA PhysX technology enabling a totally new class of physical gaming interaction for a more dynamic and realistic experience with GeForce
  • NVIDIA CUDA™ technology CUDA technology unlocks the power of the GPU’s processor cores to accelerate the most demanding system tasks-such as video transcoding-delivering incredible performance improvements over traditional CPUs
  • 3-way NVIDIA® SLI™ technology Industry leading 3-way NVIDIA SLI technology offers amazing performance scaling by implementing AFR(Alternate Frame Rendering), under Windows Vista with solid ,state-of-the-art drivers.
  • PCI Express 2.0 support Designed for the new PCI Express 2.0 bus architecture offering the highest data transfer speeds for the most bandwidth-hungry games and 3D applications,while maintaining backwards compatibility with existing PCI Express motherboards for the broadest support.
  • GigaThread™ Technology Massively multi-threaded architecture supports thousands of independent, simultaneous threads, providing extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next generation shader programs
  • NVIDIA® Lumenex™ Engine Delivers stunning image quality and floating point accuracy at ultra-fast frame rates:  16x Anti-aliasing Technology: Lightning fast, high-quality anti-aliasing at up to 16x sample rates obliterates jagged edges  128-bit floating point High Dynamic-Range(HDR) Lighting:Twice the precision of prior generations for incredibly realistic lighting effects-now with support for anti-aliasing
  • NVIDIA® 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 white freeing the CPU to run game engine and AI
  • NVIDIA® ForceWare® Unified Driver Architecture (UDA) Delivers a proven record of compatibility reliability and stability with the widest range of games and applicationsForceWare provides the best out-of-box experience for every user and delivers continuous performance and feature updates over the life of NVIDIA GeForce® GPUs
  • OpenGL® 2.1 optimizations and support Ensures top-notch compatibility and performance for OpenGL applications
  • Dual 400MHz RAMDACs Blazing-fast RAMDACs support dual QXGA displays with ultra-high, ergonomic refresh rates –up to 2048x1536@85Hz.Dual-Link DVI Support Able to drive industry’s largest and highest resolution flat-panel displays up to 2560x1600 and with support for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection(HDCP).
  • HDMI Ready HDCP compliant. Supports standard, enhance and high –definition digital video signals, plus multi-channel digital audio on a single cable.
  • SPDIF Input Digitally transferring audio signal from motherboards to graphics card.
  • NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology The combination of high-definition video decode acceleration and post-processing that delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for movies and video.
  • Discrete, Programmable Video Processor NVIDIA PureVideo is a discrete programmable processing core in NVIDIA GPUs that provides superb picture quality and ultra-smooth movies with 100% offload of H.264 video decoding from the CPU and significantly reduced power consumption.
  • Hardware Decode Acceleration Provides ultra-smooth playback of H.264, VC-1, WMV and PEG-2 HD and SD movies.
  • Dual Stream Decode Acceleration  Hardware acceleration for HD picture-in-picture enables a complete HD movie playback experience. Dynamic contract Enhancement provides post-processing and optimization of High Definition movies on a scene basis for spectacular picture clarity
  • Dual-link HDCP Capable  Designed to meet the output protection management (HDCP) and security specifications of the Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD formats, allowing the playback of encrypted movie content on PCs when connected to HDCP-compliant displays.
  • Advanced Spatial-Temporal De-Interlacing Sharpens HD and standard definition interlaced content on progressive displays, delivering a crisp, clear picture that rivals high-end home-theater systems.
  • High-Quality Scaling Enlarges lower resolution movies and videos to HDTV resolutions, up to 1080i, while maintaining a clear, clean image. Also provides downscaling of videos, including high-definition, while preserving image detail. Inverse Telecine (3:2 & 2:2 Pulldown Correction) recovers original film images from films-converted-to-video (DVDs, 1080i HD content), providing more accurate movie playback and superior picture quality.
  • Bad Edit Correction When videos are edited after they have been converted from 24 to 25 or 30 frames, the edits can disrupt the normal 3:2 or 2:2 pulldown cadence. PureVideo uses advanced processing techniques to detect poor edits, recover the original content, and display perfect picture detail frame after frame for smooth, natural looking video.
  • Noise Reduction Improves movie image quality by removing unwanted artifacts.
  • Edge Enhancement Sharpens movie images by providing higher contrast around lines and object
