GIGABYTE unleashes RADEON 9600 Pro VPU Based GV-R96P128D Graphics Accelerator
Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. unleashes the reality to the digital virtual world with Microsoft DirectX 9.0 and OpenGL feature sets by combining the advanced ATI's cinematic Visual Processing Unit (VPU), GV-R96P128D. Featuring dazzling 3D graphics effects, coupled with sophisticated real-time visual rendering, unsurpassed graphics quality and cutting edge video features. The GV-R96P128D upgrades expectations for devoted gamers and casual fans alike and push the most compelling next-generation games to their limits.
Featuring quad-pixel pipeline architecture which doubles the rendering power, with combination of up to 128MB of DDR memory, 128-bit memory interface provides increased performance when rendering high resolution textures and delivers the bandwidth for real-time 3D graphics and dazzling cinematic rendering.
This is accomplished by 4 parallel 128-bit floating-point rendering pipelines, each with its own independent texture unit and pixel shader engine. The texture unit of each rendering pipeline can sample up to 16 textures in a single rendering pass. These textures can be one-, two-, or three-dimensional, with bilinear, tri-linear, or anisotropic filtering applied depending on the desired quality level.
Excellent 3D graphics performance is also provided by 128-bit full floating point precision, enabling billions of color variations to render the same lighting and effects as Hollywood studios. While SMARTSHADER 2.0 and SMOOTHVISION 2.1 delivers the sharpest, clearest textures without sacrificing frame rates supported by the latest Microsoft DirectX 9.0 and OpenGL feature sets.
Despite of outstanding 3D graphics performance for gaming enthusiastic users, FULLSTREAM and VIDEO IMMERSION technologies are applied for casual users which removes blocky artifacts from steaming Internet video for smoother looking, higher quality online contents.
The GV- R96P128D advances the state of the art in every aspect of its design. It was created with the goal of not only making today and tomorrow's games and other 3D applications look better than ever before, but to open up entirely new possibilities for visual entertainment. Gigabyte GV- R96P128D is definitely trustworthy in terms of the most complete range of 3D gaming solutions.
