A great entry point into DirectX 10 gaming, the GeForce 8600 GT video card delivers unparalleled levels of graphics realism and performance at a great price point. Experience true-to-life DirectX 10 graphics. Enjoy a more realistic environment interaction. Watch smoother, richer HD video without stressing your CPU, and accelerate the Windows 7 operation to get everything done faster. You can also take advantage of the dual DVI connectors to build a multi-display setting for enhanced productivity. And this model comes with a fanless design for an optimized, zero-noise experience.
Silent-Pipe II Technology Silent-Pipe II technology generates a natural airflow to provide more efficient cooling without the use of a heatsink or fan. This is achieved through a unique design that draws cool air in through a new proprietary front-flow thermal module to remove heat from the heatsink on the VGA card.
NVIDIA unified architecture with GigaThread Technology The fully unified shader core dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics, or pixel shading operations, delivering up to two times the gaming performance of prior generation GPUs. Massively multi-threaded architecture supports thousands of independent, simultaneous threads, providing extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next-generation shader programs.
Full Microsoft DirectX 10 Support The world's first DirectX 10 GPU with full Shader Model 4.0 support delivers unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects.
NVIDIA Lumenex Engine The NVIDIA Lumenex Engine delivers stunning image quality and floating point accuracy with ultra-fast frame rates. 16X Anti-aliasing Technology enables lightning fast, high-quality anti-aliasing at up to 16x sample rates to obliterate jagged edges. 128-bit Floating Point High Dynamic-Range (HDR) Lighting provides twice the precision of prior generations for incredibly realistic lighting effects–now with support for anti-aliasing.
NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology The combination of high-definition video decode acceleration and post-processing deliver unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for movies and video. Feature requires supported video software.
