In addition to 3D gaming, the e-GeForce 7800 GTX possesses new features that can enhance and augment the multimedia experience as the centerpiece of the ultimate home theater PC. And along with its support of current software technologies, the e-GeForce 7800 GTX has been built to optimally support new and upcoming driver technologies from Microsoft, truly making this the card of tomorrow, today.
Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 Support: Ensures top-notch compatibility and performance for all DirectX® 9 applications, including Shader Model 3.0 titles.
NVIDIA® CineFX™ 4.0 Engine: Delivers advanced visual effects at unimaginable speeds. Full support for Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 enables stunning and complex special effects. Next-generation shader architecture with new texture unit design streamlines texture processing for faster and smoother gameplay.
NVIDIA® SLI™ Technology*: Delivers up to 2x the performance of a single GPU configuration for unparalleled gaming experiences by allowing two graphics cards to run in parallel. The must-have feature for performance PCI Express graphics, SLI dramatically scales performance of numerous popular PC games.
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 transparent supersampling and multisampling.
64-Bit Floating Point Texture Filtering and Blending: 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® PureVideo™ Technology**: The combination of high-definition video processors 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.
Adaptable Programmable Video Processor**: PureVideo's programmable technology adapts to new video encoding formats as they are developed to provide a future-proof video solution.
High-Definition MPEG-2 and WMV Hardware Acceleration**: Smoothly playback all MPEG-2 and WMV video-including WMV-HD-with minimal CPU usage so the PC is free to do other work.
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.
Video Scaling and Filtering: High-quality scaling and filtering technology delivers a clear, clean image at any window size, including full-screen HDTV resolutions up to 1080i.
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.
Integrated HDTV Encoder: Provides world-class TV-out functionality up to 1080i resolution.
256-Bit Memory Interface: Delivers more memory bandwidth and efficiency to power the latest games and applications at blazing speeds.
NVIDIA® UltraShadow™ II Technology: Enhances the performance of bleeding-edge games, like id Software's DOOM 3, that feature complex scenes with multiple light sources and objects.
128-Bit Studio-Precision Computation: 128-bit studio-precision computation through the entire pipeline prevents image defects due to low precision and ensures the best image quality for even the most demanding applications.
OpenGL® 2.0 Optimizations and Support: Ensures top-notch compatibility and performance for all OpenGL applications.
NVIDIA® nView® Multi-Display Technology: Advanced technology provides the ultimate in viewing flexibility and control for multiple monitors.
