GIGABYTE Extends Ultra Durable 2 Range with GeForce®
9800 GT Series Graphics Accelerators
More Power Phases = Lower System Temperature + Extreme Power
City of Industry, CA, July 29, 2008 –GIGABYTE UNITED INC., a leading
manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today announce the launch of
their new graphics accelerators, the GV-N98TZL-1GH and N98TZL-512H, equipped
with NVIDIA’s latest GeForce® 9800 GT graphics processor. The GV-N98TZL-1GH and
N98TZL-512H both feature the GeForce® 9800 GT with respective 1GB/512 MB GDDR3
memory, delivering the highest levels of sophisticated game rendering for a
greatly enhanced gaming experience. Transporting users into a new realm of
gaming excitement, the GIGABYTE GV-N98TZL-1GH and N98TZL-512H feature 112
processors as well as support for HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content
Protection), providing the highest quality, High-Definition video for the
ultimate home theater experience.
The GIGABYTE GV-N98TZL-1GH and N98TZL-512H are leading the industry for top
quality design by featuring GIGABYTE’s unique Ultra Durable 2 Technology. With
highly efficient components, such as ferrite core choke coils, low RDS(on)
MOSFETs and all Japanese manufactured SMD mounted solid capacitors, GIGABYTE
Ultra Durable 2 graphics cards ensure the highest levels of reliability and
stability, cooler working temperatures and enhanced overclocking capabilities
for today's high performance, high definition platforms.
Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs – Ultra Cooling
A MOSFET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor
Field Effect Transistor) is a switch that allows or stops electric current to
pass through an electric circuit. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 graphics cards
utilize Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs. These differ from regular MOSFETS in that they
are specially designed to produce lower switching resistance and utilize lower
power consumption. The result is faster electric current charging and
discharging and less heat generation.
Ferrite Core Choke Design – Low Power Loss
If the MOSFET is in the "on"
state, the current will then flow to the choke. A choke is an inductor that
stores energy and regulates current. Choke coils help to prevent Electromagnetic
Interference (EMI) and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) from the power supply
from interfering with the power circuit. Instead of using the traditional iron
core chokes, GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 graphics cards feature Ferrite Chokes that
are comprised of a compound of iron-oxide and other metal elements. These metal
properties hold energy much longer than common iron-core chokes at high
frequency, resulting in lower power loss.
All Solid Capacitors – Longer Life
From the choke, the current then passes
through a capacitor. The capacitor stores electricity and delivers it to the
component requiring power such as the GPU. GIGABYTE uses all Solid Capacitors to
deliver maximum stability, reliability and longer system lifetime for general PC
usage as well as for improved overclocking performance.
Integrated with NVIDIA Extreme High Definition (XHD) to enhance graphics
resolution, the GIGABYTE GV-N98TZL-1GH and N98TZL-512H support the latest video
output interfaces, including Dual Dual-Link DVI, for the highest dual 2560X1600
screen resolution. Differing from past GPU generations, the NVIDIA GeForce® 9800
GT also features a dedicated on-chip video processor for superb picture quality
and ultra smooth video playback. For more details of the GIGABYTE GV-N98TZL-1GH
