Motherboard GPU Features and Benefits for:

  • NVIDIA GeForce® 6150 and NVIDIA nForce® 430
  • NVIDIA GeForce® 6100 and NVIDIA nForce® 410
  • NVIDIA GeForce® 6100 and NVIDIA nForce® 400

Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 Support
Ensures top-notch compatibility and performance for all DirectX 9.0 applications, including Shader Model 3.0 titles.

NVIDIA® PureVideo™ Technology*
The combination of the GeForce 6150 GPU’s high-definition video processor and software delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for all video content to turn your PC into a high-end home theater.
Feature only available for GeForce 6150/ nForce 430.

High-Definition MPEG-2 and WMV Hardware Acceleration*
Smoothly playback all MPEG-2 and WMV video with minimal CPU usage so the PC is free to do other work.
Feature only available for GeForce 6150/nForce 430.

Advanced Motion Adaptive De-Interlacing*
Smoothes video and DVD playback on progressive displays to deliver a crisp, clear picture that rivals high-end home theater systems.
Feature only available for GeForce 6150/nForce 430.

Video Scaling and Filtering
Scaling and filtering technology delivers a clear, clean image at any window size. Including full-screen HDTV resolutions for GeForce 6150/ nForce 430 models.

Integrated HDTV Encoder
Provides world-class HDTV-out functionality up to and including 1920x1080i resolutions. Includes RCA, S-video and component output support.
Feature only available for GeForce 6150/nForce 430.

Video Color Correction*
Color temperature correction makes actors’ faces appear natural, rather than washed out and pale, when playing videos on LCD and CRT displays. Display gamma correction ensures videos are not too dark, overly bright, or washed out regardless of the video format or display.

NVIDIA® CineFX™ 3.0 Engine
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.

NVIDIA® Intellisample™ 3.0 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.

NVIDIA® nView™ Multi-Display Technology
Advanced technology provides the ultimate in viewing flexibility and control for multiple monitors.

Full-Speed 32-Bit Color Precision
Delivers increased image quality with no performance compromise.

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.

OpenGL® 1.5 Optimizations and Support
Ensures top-notch compatibility and performance for all OpenGL applications.

Blazing-fast RAMDAC supports display with high, ergonomic refresh rates up to and including 1920x1440@75Hz.

Single-Link DVI Support
Able to drive flat-panel displays up to and including 1600x1200.
Feature only available for GeForce 6150/nForce 430.

HyperTransport™ Technology
A state-of-the-art I/O bus interface delivering high continuous throughput—up to 8.0GB/s—between the GeForce 6150 and the AMD Athlon 64 processor and between the GeForce 6150 and the nForce 430 MCP. Ensures data and information are relayed through the system as quickly as possible for incredible performance.

PCI Express
Designed to run with the next-generation PCI Express bus architecture.
Refer to motherboard GPU technical specifications for supported configurations.

NVIDIA nForce Storage
Safeguards your most important digital media assets; always reliable, scalable, and accessible. Includes NVIDIA RAID and drive support.

NVIDIA RAID and MediaShield™ technology
Provides a simple point and click wizard-based interface for creating and managing multi-disk storage configurations. Allows multi-disk designs to be set up for maximum performance (RAID 0), for data protection (RAID 1), and for select models a combination of both performance and protection (RAID 0+1 and RAID 5). Also allows RAID volumes to be converted from one configuration to another with a single operation. Uniquely allows users to assign an extra disk to any RAID volume so that should a disk failure occur, NVIDIA RAID will automatically remove the failed disk and replace it with the spare.

SATA 3Gb/s
Take advantage of the latest SATA 3Gb/s hard disk drives, which double bus bandwidth and provides blazingly high disk performance. This technology provides easy-to-install, high-performance but low-powered hard drives.

NVIDIA nForce Networking
NVIDIA nForce Networking solution enables Internet connectivity through industry standard 10/100 Mb/s Ethernet connection.

NVIDIA Native Gigabit Ethernet
The industry’s fastest Gigabit Ethernet performance eliminates network bottlenecks and improves overall system efficiency and performance.
Feature only available for GeForce 6150/nForce 430.

High Definition Audio (HDA)
High definition audio brings consumer electronics quality sound to the PC delivering high quality sound from multiple channels. Using HDA, systems can deliver 192 kHz/32-bit quality for eight channels, supporting new audio formats.

USB Ports
A standard plug-and-play interface that provides easy-to-use connectivity for USB devices. Supports 8 USB 1.1 / 2.0 ports.
