The GeForce 8 series offers a complete family of graphic cards ready to meet the unique needs of their users. The series uses a unified DirectX 10 Shader Model 4.0 & Open GL 2.0 architecture to produce stunning 3-dimensional graphics and lifelike texture rendering. With 10-bit per channel output, the 8 series produces higher fidelity color and separation. The cards support SLI and NVIDIA's PureVideo HD.
The 8500GT offers faster video processing at an affordable price along with higher resolution rendering. It processes video data with 16 stream processors fed by 512MB of 128-bit double-pumping GDDR2 SDRAM running at 800MHz to deliver 2560 x 1600 resolution. The core clock runs at 459Mhz and the 400MHz RAMDAC allows you to output to a pair of monitors for increased workflow, or wide-screen gaming.
Video can be streamed via Composite, S-Video or HDTV outputs. An onboard fan aids board cooling and case airflow so you're ready to go right out of the box. Choose the NVIDIA GeForce 8500GT card to handle your video and graphic needs without busting your budget.
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.
Full Microsoft DirectX 10 Support The 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 supports 128-bit and 64-bit floating point HDR with up to 16X anti-aliasing, delivering vividly realistic lighting effects while obliterating "jaggies".
