PCI Express GeForce 7800 GT 256MB DDR Video Card with Copper
Traditionally, PC gamers have had to choose between the fastest
frame rates and the best image quality in order to maintain
playable performance on advanced PC games. That was then. This is
The NVIDIA GeForce 7800 graphics processing units (GPUs) represent a
significant leap forward in 3D graphics design, delivering the
unparalleled horsepower and revolutionary technologies you need to
tear through the latest games. The GeForce 7800 GPUs deliver
blazing frame rates and outstanding image quality--so you can
experience full-throttle graphics performance.
* PCI Express Support
PCI Express is a Intel bus architecture that doubles the bandwidth of
the AGP 8X bus, delivering over 4 GB per second in both upstream and
downstream data transfers.
* NVIDIA SLI Technology
Patented hardware and software technology allows two GPUs to run in
parallel to scale performance.
Scales performance on over 60 top PC games and applications.
* Mind-Blowing Performance
Built to deliver mind-blowing graphics performance, the GeForce 7800
GPUs feature a next-generation superscalar architecture and an all new
NVIDIA CineFX 4.0 engine. The CineFX 4.0 engine includes a redesigned
vertex shader unit that shortens the time required to set up complex
geometry processing. In addition, a new pixel shader unit delivers up to
2x the floating point shading power of previous generation products,
while an advanced texture unit incorporates new hardware algorithms to
speed filtering and blending operations. All of these features combine
to deliver advanced visual effects at unimaginable speeds.
The GeForce 7800 GPUs are designed to reach even higher levels of
performance through NVIDIA SLI technology. With NVIDIA SLI, you can
combine two GeForce 7800 GPUs in a single system to scale performance by
up to 2x. Through an intelligent combination of software and hardware,
NVIDIA SLI is able to offer this unbelievable performance on over 60 of
the top PC titles. If you have ever dreamed of running id Softwares
DOOM 3 at 90 frames per second, NVIDIA SLI can make your dream a
The GeForce 7800 GPUs are backed by the NVIDIA ForceWare Unified Driver
Architecture (UDA)--the industrys most stable software platform. The
ForceWare UDA delivers rock-solid reliability and compatibility with the
widest range of games and applications so you can enjoy the ultimate
* Realistic Gaming Experiences
Powered by breakthrough visual effects technology, the GeForce 7800 GPUs
blur the line between fictional game worlds and reality. Featuring the
advanced NVIDIA Intellisample 4.0 technology, the GeForce 7800 GPUs
deliver exceptional visual quality through new antialiasing modes and
advanced anisotropic filtering.
Some of the new modes and enhancements include:
- Transparent supersampling and multisampling which minimize the
undesirable visible aliasing that occurs in highly detailed textures.
The improvement in 3D image quality can be most visible when viewing
outdoor scenes and objects such as vegetation and chain link fences
- Increased subsample coverage and a new texture core which accelerate
64-bit floating point texture filtering and blending to deliver full-
speed, state-of-the art high dynamic-range (HDR) lighting effects.
This technique, used in professional film rendering by companies such
as Industrial Light & Magic, delivers complex, ultra-realistic
lighting effects to hot new games.
- Gamma-adjusted rotated-grid antialiasing which removes jagged edges
from 3D images while maintaining the highest level of color
reproduction on your monitor.
In addition, the GeForce 7800 GPUs are built on NVIDIAs proven
Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 architecture, so you can play all
the latest DirectX 9.0-based games while experiencing the most realistic
Shader Model 3.0 effects possible.
* Home-Theater Quality Video
Watching TV, DVDs, and high-definition video on the PC is quickly
becoming commonplace amongst PC users. In addition to providing the
performance and advanced features for an amazing gaming experience, the
GeForce 7800 GPUs also deliver a home-theater quality video experience
to the PC with NVIDIA PureVideo technology.
The combination of a hardware video processor and video decode software,
NVIDIA PureVideo technology delivers stunning video to any display.
NVIDIA PureVideo supercharges your PC experience with high-definition
video and crystal-clear picture quality. Featuring enhanced HDTV
processing and the industrys most advanced video algorithms, PureVideo
delivers 50% efficiency improvement and support for the latest high-
definition video standard--WMV9 1080p. Integrated HDTV-output allows you
to connect your PC to a high definition TV for direct-to-TV playback,
turning your PC into a high-end home theater system.
* Equip Yourself with Full-Throttle Graphics Performance
Raising the bar for performance, visual effects, image quality, and
video functionality, the GeForce 7800 GPUs power an extreme PC
experience. No longer do you have to choose between blazing frame rates
and the highest image quality. By equipping your rig with a GeForce 7800
GPU, you can experience the power of full-throttle graphics performance.
