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.
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.
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.
Playback videos in Microsoft’s Windows Media Video High Definition (WMV-HD) format without skipping frames or losing video detail. Accepted by the HD-DVD consortium as a new HD format, WMV-HD is now part of Windows XP to make it easy for users to edit and save their favorite videos.
Smoothly playback all MPEG-2 video with minimal CPU usage so the PC is free to do other work. Battery-life is extended when watching DVDs while running on battery.
Adapt to new video formats as they are developed, providing a future-proof video solution.
Sharpens interlaced content on progressive displays, delivering a crisp, clear picture.
Color temperature correction makes actors’ faces appear natural, rather than washed out and pale, when playing videos on LCD and CRT displays.
Notebook LCD displays can exhibit “ghosting” effects because of the slow response time of liquid crystals. The LCD overdrive feature compensate for this slower response time by overdriving color signals, thereby automatically eliminating ghosting effects.
Get full digital video recording functionality without losing data. With NVIDIA PureVideo technology, high-quality recording preserves picture detail while also using minimal space to store videos on the hard drive.
Powers the next generation of cinematic realism. Full support for Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 enables stunning and complex special effects. Next-generation shader architecture delivers faster and smoother gameplay.
Many games repeat 3D geometry (for example, trees or grass) hundreds to thousands of times. The GeForce Go 6 Series GPUs allow a single model of the geometry to be uniquely animated an infinite number of ways, each being a unique “instance” of the original model. This translates into a massive performance benefit when playing games with complex scenes.
The GeForce 6 Series GPUs employ advanced techniques to simulate highly detailed visuals using low-polygon models, enabling a new level of realism in 3D games and applications. This allows many games and professional applications to use coarse, low-polygon models that look highly detailed with very little computational cost.
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.
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.
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.
The fifth generation of NVIDIA’s advanced hardware power management technology that reduces notebook power consumption for the graphics subsystem without affecting the user experience.
