GIGABYTE Presents Silent-Pipe 3 Graphics Accelerators with GeForce 8600 GTS

GIGABYTE UNITED INC., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, is again changing the face of silent graphics card solutions with the release of the breakthrough Silent-Pipe series third generation - Silent-Pipe 3. Combining three GIGABYTE proprietary thermal designs: Silent-Pipe II recommended by Tom's Hardware and awarded by AnandTech, Silent-Pipe known by gamers worldwide for its unmatched silent operation and Screen-Cooling for entry-level cards, Silent-Pipe 3 delivers the very latest in advanced passive cooling technologies.

Based on extensive lab testing and previous graphics card development, the GIGABYTE VGA engineering group has designed a revolutionary new VGA card cooling technology which utilizes natural convection inside the chassis to disperse heat. Similar to the principle of turbulence in fluid dynamics, Silent-Pipe 3 introduces an all-new concept of VGA card cooling ? Inner Turbulence Fluid Mechanics Design. Utilizing a series of layered long and short fins with trapezoid punches, Silent-Pipe 3 transforms laminar (smooth) air flow into turbulent (rough) air flow inside the heat sink, increasing the heat exchange ratio and enhancing overall thermal performance.

Silent-Pipe 3: Features & Benefits
1. Inner turbulence fluid mechanics design
2. Front-flow thermal module with layered long-short fins
3. High-performance heat pipe with sintered powder wicks and 90% of the heat sink is covered by heat pipe.
4. Advanced Screen-CoolingTM thermal design
5. Cooper thermal conductive base

The GIGABYTE GV-NX86S256H comes bundled with the immensely popular Supreme Commander, awarded Best Strategy Game at E3 2006. Supreme Commander is the first real-time strategy (RTS) computer game to deliver a truly strategic and tactical experience. Developed by Chris Taylor, Supreme Commander raises the bar for its sheer scope and scale of game play. With an enhanced storyline based around three warring factions, each with their own view of the future path humanity should take, Supreme Commander promises to fully immerse gamers in this futuristic fight for humanity. Game play is further propelled with breathtaking features such as the "Strategic zoom system", allowing players to zoom out far enough to view the entire map at a glance. Players can also zoom in close enough that larger units such as battleships fill most of the screen.

Featuring the latest GeForce 8600 GTS with 256MB GDDR3 memory and DirectX 10 and Shader Model 4.0 support, the GIGABYTE GV-NX86S256H delivers highly realistic gaming effects and enables full support for Microsoft Windows Vista Premium. Differing from past GPU generations, the NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS features a dedicated on-chip video processor for superb picture quality and ultra smooth video playback. The GV-NX86S256H also features NVIDIA's latest advanced technologies including NVIDIA's GigaThreadTM Technology, which, through the use of a massively multi-threaded architecture, is able to create thousands of independent, simultaneous threads, providing extreme processing efficiency for advanced, next generation shader programs. Additionally, the GIGABYTE GV-NX86S256H supports Quantum EffectsTM Technology, enabling a new level of physics effects to be simulated and rendered on the GPU as well as support for NVIDIA's LumenexTM engine, which introduces 16x Anti-aliasing and 128-bit floating point High-Dynamic-Range (HDR) rendering for the most realistic lighting effects.

The GIGABYTE GV-NX86S256H supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection and features support for the latest video output interfaces, including Dual Dual-Link DVI, ensuring the highest quality, Hi-Def experience for the latest Blu-ray and HD DVD formats. Continuing GIGABYTE's leadership as the first VGA maker to implement an All-Solid capacitor design on a wide range of graphics accelerators, the GV-NX86S256H provides the enhanced stability, reliability and longevity necessary for today's PC gaming and entertainment systems.
