NVIDIA's ninth generation series of graphics cards combines cutting edge technology and advanced capabilities for best-in-class performance. The 9800GX2 is the solution for all your most demanding graphic needs. It’s Microsoft Vista ready and has a PCI-Express 2.0 interface for the latest system. The 9800 supports Quad SLI to seriously ramp your performance options with up to four graphics for insane flow rates.
Support for DirectX 10, Shader Model 4.0, OpenGL 2.1 and NVIDIA's PureVideoHD render even the most intense environmental effects or HD DVD video with brilliant clarity. The card's core clock runs at 675MHz as it takes the burden of pixel crunching off of your CPU. Data surges through the 9800's 256 stream processors which are fed by 512MB of 256-bit GDDR3 memory operating at 2100MHz.
Twin dual-linked DVI and 400 MHz RAMDAC lets you display 2560 x 1600 resolution video and graphics on even the largest monitors. In addition to supporting multiple monitors, uncompressed digital streams can also be output via the HDMI port. The 9800 delivers fluid frame rates and HD video with solid performance. If you're serious about your video – and if your motherboard can take it, the 9800GX2 can dish it out.
NVIDIA Unified Architecture with GigaThread Technology The fully-unified shader core dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics and pixel shading operations, delivering incredibly true-to-life 3D graphics. In addition, the massively multi-threaded architecture supports thousands of independent, simultaneous threads, providing extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next generation shader programs.
NVIDIA HybridPower Technology Designed for PC enthusiasts and hard-core gamers, HybridPower Technology switches graphics processing from the GeForce 9800 GX2 graphics card to your motherboard GeForce GPU when running less graphics-intensive applications for reduced energy consumption, quieter operation, and less heat generation.
PCI Express 2.0 Interface The PCI Express 2.0 interface delivers an ultra-high data rate of up to 16 GB/s, and is backward compatible with PCI Express x16 (PCI-E 1.0), so you can upgrade the graphics of your existing system with the EVGA 01G-P3-N897-AR.
Quad NVDIA SLI Technology The next-level Quad NVIDIA SLI technology enables a pair of über-powered, dual GPU GeForce 9800 GX2-based graphics cards to work simultaneously, delivering a 3.4x performance increase over a single GeForce 8800 GT, perfect for building the world’s fastest gaming platform under Windows Vista.
NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology The combination of high-definition video decoding acceleration and post-processing delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color and precise image scaling for all video content, especially movies.
Essential Vista NVIDIA GeForce 9 Series GPUs are essential for accelerating your Windows Vista experience by offering an enriched 3D user interface, increased productivity, vibrant photos, smooth, high-definition videos, and ultra-realistic games.
