GeForce 8800Ultra Chipset Features
NVIDIA unified architecture
Fully unified shader core dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics, or pixel shading operation, delivering up to 2x the gaming performance of prior generation GPUs.
Full Microsoft DirectX 10 Support
World's first DirectX10 GPU with full Shader model 4.0 support delivers unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects.
NVIDIA SLI Technology
Delivers up to 2x the performance of a single graphics card configuration for unequaled gaming experiences by allowing two cards to run in parallel. The must-have feature for performance PCI Express graphics, SLI technology dramatically scales performance on today's hottest games.
NVIDIA Quantum Effects Technology
Advanced shader processors architected for physics computation enable a new level of physics effects to be simulated and rendered on the GPU--all while freeing the CPU to run the game engine and AI.
NVIDIA ForceWare unified Driver Architecture (UDA)
Delivers a proven record of compatibility, reliability, and stability with the widest range of games and applications. ForceWare provides the best out-of-box experience and delivers continuous performance and feature updates over the life of NVIDIA GeForce GPUs.
Designed to meet the output protection management (HDCP) and security specifications of the Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD formats, allowing the playback of encrypted movie content on PCs when connected purchased purcconnected to HDCP-compliant displays.
OpenGL 2.0 Optimizations and Support
Ensures top-notch compatibility and performance for OpenGl applications.
PCI Express Support
Designed to run perfectly with the PCI Express bus architecture, which doubles the bandwidth of AGP 8X to deliver over 4GB/sec. In both upstream and downstream.
Dual 400MHz RAMDACs
Blazing-fast RAMDACs support dual QXGA displays with ultra-high, ergonomic refresh rate-up to 2048x1536@85Hz.
NVIDIA nView Multi-Display Technology
Advanced technology provides the ultimate in viewing flexibility and control for multiple monitors.
Dual-Link DVI Support
Able to drive the industry's largest and highest resolution flat-panel displays up to 2560*1600.
Sharpens HD and standard definition interlaced content on progressive displays, delivering a crisp, clear picture that rivals high-end home-theater systems.
NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology
The combination of high-definition video decode acceleration and post-processing that delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for movies and video.
Inverse Telecine (3:2 & 2:2 Pulldown Correction)
Recovers original film images from films-converted-to-video (DVDs, 1080i HD content), providing more accurate movie playback and superior picture quality.
Improves movie image quality by removing unwanted artifacts.
Sharpens movie images by providing higher contrast around lines and objects
Bad Edit Correction
When videos are edited after they have been converted from 24 to 25 or 30 frames, the edits can disrupt the normal 3:2 or 2:2 pulldown cadence. PureVideo uses advanced processing techniques to detect poor edits, recover the original content, and display perfect picture detail frame after frame for smooth, natural looking video.
16x Anti-aliasing Technology
Lightning fast, high-quality anti-aliasing at up to 16x sample rates obliterates jagged edges.
128-bit floating point High Dynamic-Range (HDR) Lighting
Twice the precision of prior generations for incredibly realistic lighting effects - now with support for anti-aliasing.
Build for Microsoft Windows Vista
NVIDIA's fourth-generation GPU architecture built for Windows Vista gives users the best possible experience with the Window Aero 3D graphical user interface.
Discrete, Programmable Video Processor
NVIDIA PureVideo is a discrete programmable processing core in NVIDIA GPUs that provides superb picture quality and ultra-smooth movies with low CPU utlization and power.
Hardware Decode Acceleration
Provides ultra-smooth playback of H.264, VC-1, WMV and MPEG-2 HD and SD movies
Enlarges lower resolution movies and videos the HDTV resolutions, up to 1080i, while maintaining a clear, clean image. Also provides downscaling of videos, including high-definition, while preserving image detail.
