Windows 7 will mark a dramatic improvement in the way the Windows operating system takes advantage of the graphics processing unit (GPU) to provide a more compelling user experience. By taking advantage of the GPU for both graphics and computing, Windows 7 will not only make today’s PCs more visual and more interactive but also ensure that they have the speed and responsiveness customers want.
EVGA GeForce® GPUs are world renowned for innovation, stability, and award-winning performance, and are the choice of reviewers, professionals, and consumers worldwide. As the inventor of the GPU and the leader in GPU computing, NVIDIA has worked closely with Microsoft to ensure that its customers will get a premium Windows 7 experience for the home user. If you use your PC to enhance photos, edit videos, watch movies, play games, or if you simply desire a fast and efficient desktop experience, EVGA GeForce® GPUs provide a superior experience.
Microsoft has also made significant changes to the 3D Aero Windows desktop in Windows 7. With the new Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) v1.1 built for Windows 7, the Windows desktop is able to leverage the DirectX 10 API to provide a higher-performance experience. In addition, Windows 7 effectively takes advantage of the GPU to reduce by half the amount of memory consumed to draw desktop windows. The result is better windows responsiveness and more system memory available for other applications.
