NVIDIA offers new 9-Series mGPUs
Any gamer worth his or her salt will definitely have had experienced the power of an NVIDIA card in their lifetime, and most of them will have nothing but praises for it. The company, after all, is the No. 1 video card manufacturer in the world and have remained at the top of their game for quite some time already. Their engineering team was recently given a challenge – to come up with a desktop GPU which is able to merge full system I/O and discrete-level performance in half the size of previous integrated graphics solutions. Needless to say, that team has gone above and beyond the call of duty to roll out a 16-core CUDA-capable graphics architecture which allows mainstream PC users to play the latest computer games despite being on a tight budget. Oh yeah, the fact that silky smooth high-definition Blu-ray video playback is also possible makes the new 9 Series mGPUs an almost certain winner.
Features found on the new NVIDIA GeForce 9-Series motherboard GPUs include :-
- 16-cores for processing DirectX 10 games and CUDA-accelerated applications
- High-quality video playback with NVIDIA PureVideo(R) HD technology, which offloads 100% of all video processing from the CPU to the GPU
- Support for advanced audio and video connectivity, including uncompressed LPCM 7.1 audio, dual-link DVI, and HDMI
- Support for NVIDIA Hybrid SLI Technology, which boosts performance up to 70% above the motherboard GPU
- Single-chip design with much smaller footprint than competing chipsets makes it ideal for small form factor and ultra-slim media center PCs
You will be able to find motherboards from ASUS, ECS, EVGA, Foxconn, Galaxy, Gigabyte, J&W, MSI, Onda, Zotac, and XFX that support the new GeForce 9-Series GPUs from this month onwards. Prices vary from brand to brand, but hey – at least these beat those piss poor integrated graphic chips from Intel by more than a long mile.
