Next-Generation Superscalar GPU Architecture
Delivers up to 2x the shading power of previous generation products taking gaming performance to extreme levels.


   
Full Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 Support
The standard for today’s PCs and next-generation consoles enables stunning and complex effects for cinematic realism. NVIDIA GPUs offer the most complete implementation of the Shader Model 3.0 feature set—including vertex texture fetch (VTF)—to ensure top-notch compatibility and performance for all DirectX 9 applications.


   
NVIDIA® CineFX® 4.0 Engine
Delivers advanced visual effects at unimaginable speeds. Full support for Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 enabling stunning and complex special effects. Next-generation shader architecture with new texture unit design streamlines texture processing for faster and smoother gameplay.


   
UltraShadow II Technology
Enhances the performance of bleeding-edge games, featuring complex scenes with multiple light sources and objects. 2nd-generation technology delivers more than 4x the shadow processing power over the previous generation.


   
Transparency Antialiasing
The industry's first mobile GPU family to support transparency supersampling and multisampling to dramatically improve the quality of objects modeled in alpha-tested textures (typically environmental details like chain link fences, grass, leaves, or other vegetation).


   
NVIDIA® Intellisample™ 4.0 Technology
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.


   
True High Dynamic-Range (HDR) Rendering Support
The ultimate lighting effects bring environments to life for a truly immersive, ultra-reailstic experience. Based on the OpenEXR technology from Industrial Light & Magic (http://www.openexr.com/), NVIDIA’s 64-bit texture implementation delivers state-of-the-art high dynamic-range (HDR) visual effects through floating point capabilities in shading, filtering, texturing, and blending.


   
NVIDIA TurboCache Technology
Combines the capacity and bandwidth of dedicated video memory with dynamically allocated system memory—to turbocharge graphics performance.


   
64-Bit High-speed Memory Interface
Delivers more memory bandwidth and efficiency to power the latest games and applications at blazing speeds.


   
NVIDIA® PureVideo® Technology
NVIDIA® PureVideo technology is the combination of a high-definition video processing core on the NVIDIA GPU and software that plays ultra-smooth movies with minimal CPU use and low power consumption. Features vary by product.


   
Adaptable Programmable Video Processor
NVIDIA PureVideo is a programmable technology that can adapt to new video encoding formats as they are developed, providing a future-proof video solution. Feature requires supported video software. Features may vary by product.


   
MPEG-2 Decode Acceleration
Allows smooth playback of all MPEG-2 video with minimal CPU usage—freeing the PC to do other work.
Requires MPEG-2 Decoder.


   
WMV Decode Acceleration
Play videos in Microsoft’s Windows Media Video High Definition (WMV HD) format without skipping frames or losing video detail.
Requires supported video software.


   
Inverse Telecine (3:2 & 2:2 Pulldown Correction)
Recovers original images from films that have been converted to video (e.g. DVDs, 1080i HD content), providing more accurate movie playback and superior picture quality.


   
LCD Sharpening
Automatically eliminates ghosting effects caused by the slower response time of some LCD panels.


   
Spatial-Temporal De-Interlacing
Sharpens interlaced content on progressive displays, delivering a crisp, clear picture.


   
High-Quality Scaling
Enlarges lower resolution videos and movies to fit your display, while maintaining a clear, clean image. Also provides downscaling of videos, including high-definition, while preserving image detail.


   
Video Color Correction
Corrects differences in color characteristics of RGB and TV monitors, ensuring videos are not too dark, overly bright, or washed out regardless of the video format or display.


   
Integrated SD and HDTV Output
Connects to your standard definition or high definition TV via Composite, S-Video, Component, DVI, or HDMI connections. Supports resolutions up to 1080p depending on connection type and TV capability.


   
PowerMizer™ 6.0 Technology
The sixth generation of NVIDIA's advanced hardware power management technology that reduces notebook power consumption & heat generation for the graphics subsystem, thereby enabling a truly mobile, cool & quiet, uncompromised user experience.


   
OpenGL® 2.0 Optimizations and Support
Ensures the best performance and application compatibility for all OpenGL applications.


   
NVIDIA® Digital Vibrance Control® 3.0 Technology
Allows the user to adjust color controls digitally to compensate for the lighting conditions of their workspace, in order to achieve accurate, bright colors in all conditions.


   
Dual 400MHz RAMDACs
Blazing-fast RAMDACs support dual QXGA displays with ultra-high, ergonomic refresh rates up to and including 2048x1536@85Hz. May vary by model.


   
PCI Express Certified
Designed to run perfectly with the next-generation PCI Express bus architecture. This new bus doubles the bandwidth of AGP 8x delivering over 4GB/s in both upstream and downstream data transfers.
