Essential for the Ultimate HD Movie Experience

Blu-ray and HD DVD movies are bringing a new level of movie viewing experience, with high definition image quality far surpassing standard definition DVDs. To deliver the ultimate HD movie experience when playing Blu-ray and HD-DVD, NVIDIA developed PureVideo HD technology, available with NVIDIA GeForce 8 GPUs.

PureVideo HD technology features hardware acceleration, integration with leading movie players, and is designed to meet the HDCP specification for output protection management and security specifications of Blu-ray and HD DVD movie formats. NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology delivers superb picture quality for all video formats, as well as stunning HD DVD and Blu-ray movies with low CPU utilisation and power consumption.

NVIDIA GeForce 8 GPUs, incorporate a revolutionary new video processing architecture, making them the world's first GPU video processors to offload 100% of Blu-ray and HD DVD H.264 video decoding from the CPU1. This added processing power gives PureVideo HD technology the ability to support more complex features as they are added to Blu-ray and HD DVD movies, including "picture-in-picture" movies, interactive games and menus, higher bit-rate / higher quality movie pictures, and allows the user to run other applications while playing a high definition movie. Lower CPU utilisation can result in reduced power consumption, heat and noise.

PureVideo HD technology delivers outstanding picture clarity, ultra-smooth video, vivid colour, and precise image scaling for video and HD DVD and Blu-ray movies. PureVideo HD accelerates and enhances high definition movies in H.264, VC-1, WMV, and MPEG-2 formats, delivering life like images that have up to six times the detail of standard DVD movies. High definition post processing features, including advanced de-interlacing, noise reduction, and edge enhancement, provide spectacular picture clarity at resolutions up to 1080p the highest HD resolution available.

NVIDIA GeForce 8 is the essential ingredient for the ultimate high definition movie and video experience on a PC.
