GIGABYTE Gets Ready For Next Generation 64-Bit, High-Definition PC Gaming

GIGABYTE Technology Co. Ltd., a world-leading VGA card manufacturer, today launched the GV-NX78X256V-B, one of the industry's first next generation high-definition PC Gaming VGA solutions based on the NVIDIA GeForce 7800GTX graphics processor. Following close on the heels of several remarkable VGA card innovations from GIGABYTE, such as the proprietary 3D1 series of dual GPU cards, innovative fanless thermal designs that use Silent-pipe cooling technology and the famous GIGABYTE Turbo Force performance tuner, the new GV-NX78X256V-B introduces an incredible 24 pixel pipeline in what is arguably the industry's most powerful and technically advanced graphics accelerator card. The new flagship VGA card from GIGABYTE also supports a host of industry wide technological advancements such as Microsoft DirectX 9.0C and OpenGL 2.0, and is fully compatible with 64-bit operating systems.

The NVIDIA GeForce 7800GTX GPU featured on the new GV-NX78X256V-B boasts a fourth generation graphics engine that streamlines the creation of complex visual effects through features such as the CineFX 4.0 engine that allows developers to create unique 3D game features and effects in both game animation and high-definition video. For discerning PC gamers, the GV-NX78X256V-B incorporates Intellisample™ 4.0 that increases performance at higher resolutions through advances in compression technology to deliver exceptional visual quality. Moreover, the GV-NX78X256V-B is also outfitted with NVIDIA® UltraShadow™ II that fulfills complex digital lights and realistic shadows in future-generation games, and Microsoft® DirectX® Shader Model 3.0, that provides infinite program command length creating photorealistic scenes and environments in games, without compromising overall PC performance. Naturally, the video accelerator cards also support NVIDIA® SLI™ technology for full-throttle high-definition PC gaming performance.

In addition to NVIDIA's industry leading 3D gaming technologies, the GV-NX78X256V-B also incorporates PureVideo™ technology that ensures support for new video formats, while its motion estimation engine (MEE) allows the card to record and play video files simultaneously without interrupting system performance. An added value the GV-NX78X256V-B provides is its high-definition MPEG-2 and WMV HD hardware accelerator that take on much of the heavy lifting during playback of Hi-Def video. Other video playback enhancements include a unique color correction mechanism that will help to create a home theater from a PC.

The GV-NX78X256V-B is equipped with video in and out (VIVO), HDTV, DVI-I, D-SUB output, and comes bundled with an impressive range of software, including Cyberlink PowerDirector 3.0 ME, PowerDVD 6.0, Joint Operations, and Xpand Rally. The GV-NX78X256V-B is expected to be available off the shelf in end of June. For more details, please visit the official GIGABYTE VGA website:
