|Richer, More Vibrant Images with the GeForce 6 Series of GPUs
The NVIDIA® GeForce™ 6 Series of GPUs delivers extraordinary new technologies that streamline the creation of stunning effects in games and other 3D real-time applications. The innovative new architecture gives developers the hardware power they need to create detailed, vibrant images that won’t tax your PC.
The NVIDIA GeForce 6 Series includes a totally new superscalar shader architecture, which doubles the number of operations that can be executed per cycle compared to traditional architectures. The result is a significant performance increase over single-shader non-scalar designs. In addition, the new architecture provides full 32-bit floating point precision—while still allowing for 16-bit mode—so developers can deliver higher quality images in a broader range of real-time situations. The superscalar design also provides increased programming flexibility. Increased performance, flexibility, and 32-bit native mode enable a host of complex computations and pixel operations, resulting in an unprecedented level of image sophistication in the latest bleeding-edge games and other real-time interactive applications.
64-Bit Texture Filtering and Blending
Did you know that the human eye is more sensitive to low intensities of light, and sees darker shades with more detail than high-intensity or bright light? Developers would like to take advantage of the subtle light, texture, and color intricacies that you see in the real world and put them in their games, so you can experience rich, detailed scenes that fully immerse you in their game environments.
