Essential for the Ultimate HD Movie Experience

Blu-ray 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 DVD, NVIDIA developed PureVideo HD technology, available with NVIDIA GeForce 9 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 DVD movie formats. NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology delivers superb picture quality for all video formats, as well as stunning Blu-ray movies with low CPU utilisation and power consumption.

NVIDIA GeForce 9 GPUs, incorporates video processing architecture, to offload 100% of Blu-ray 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 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 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 9 is the essential ingredient for the ultimate high definition movie and video experience on a PC.

Key Features

  • Powered by NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT GPU
  • Supports PCI Express 2.0
  • Microsoft DirectX 10 and OpenGL 2.1 support
  • Integrated with the industry's best 1 GB GDDR3 memory and 256-bit memory interface
  • Supports NVIDIA SLI and PureVideo HD technology
  • Features Dual link DVI-I / D-sub / HDMI / HDCP

Dual-link DVI
Able to drive two of the industry's largest and highest resolution flat-panel displays up to 2560x1600.

SLI Technology
Delivers up to 2X the performance of a single GPU configuration for unparalleled gaming experiences by allowing two graphics cards to run in parallel. The must-have feature for performance PCI Express graphics, SLI dramatically scales performance on 60 top PC games.

Windows Vista
Enjoy powerful graphics performance, improved stability, and an immersive HD gaming experience for Windows Vista. ATI Catalyst software is designed for quick setup of graphics, video, and multiple displays, and automatically configures optimal system settings for life like DirectX 10 gaming and the visually stunning Windows Aero user interface.

OpenGL 2.1 Optimizations
Ensure top-notch compatibility and performance for all OpenGL 2.1 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.

Shader Model 4.0
Shader Model 4.0 adds support for indexed temporaries which can be quite useful for certain tasks.Regular direct temporary access is preferable is most cases. One reason is that indexed temporaries are hard to optimize. The shader optimizer may not be able to identify optimizations across indexed accesses that could otherwise have been detected. Furthermore, indexed temporaries tend to increase register pressure a lot. An ordinary shader that contains for instance a few dozen variables will seldom consume a few dozen temporaries in the end but is likely to be optimized down to a handful depending on what the shader does. This is because the shader optimizer can easily track all variables and reuse registers. This is typically not possible for indexed temporaries, thus the register pressure of the shader may increase dramatically. This could be detrimental to performance as it reduces the hardware's ability to hide latencies.

PCI-E 2.0
PCI Express 2.0 -Now you are ready for the most demanding graphics applications thanks to PCI Express 2.0 support, which allows up to twice the throughput of current PCI Express cards. Doubles the bus standard's bandwidth from 2.5 Gbit/s (PCIe 1.1) to 5 Gbit/sec.

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.

HDMI Ready
High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a new interface standard for consumer electronics devices that combines HDCP-protected digital video and audio into a single, consumer-friendly connector.

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.

CUDA Technology
NVIDIA CUDA technology unlocks the power of the hundreds of cores in your NVIDIA GeForce graphics processor (GPU) to accelerate some of the most performance hungry computing applications. The CUDA technology already adopted by thousands of programers to speed up those performance hungry computing applications.

PhyX Technology
NVIDIA PhysX is the next big thing in gaming! The best way to get real-time physics, such as explosions that cause dust and debris, characters with life-like motion or cloth that drapes and tears naturally is with an NVIDIA PhysX-ready GeForce processor.

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.
