The SLI-Ready NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT supercharges your graphics horsepower at the perfect price and performance combination. Enjoy industry-leading features such as NVIDIA PhysX technology that brings your games to life and HybridPower for optimal power management. And with GeForce 9 Series goodness, 112 processor cores and a 256-bit frame buffer, this GPU’s got the stuff hardcore gamers have been waiting for. Additionally, this card incorporates Gigabyte Ultra Durable VGA and Silent Cell technologies to run cooler, quieter and more stable under intensive 3D gaming load.
- Silent CellGigabyte’s state-of-the-art Silent-Cell Cooling Technology adopts a series of crimping layered fins with aluminum nodes. Thanks to proprietary cell-division thermal architecture and ultra-huge pure copper base with 3 heat pipes, Silent Cell is able to cool down the GPU up to 18°C more than by using an active fan cooling design. In addition, Silent-Cell cooler module utilizes the precision process to deliver zero-interval combination between heat pipe and fins, enhancing the overall cooling capability without any compromise from its material characteristic.
- Ultra Durable VGA (UDV)Gigabyte’s UDV board employs high quality components including 2 oz Copper PCB, 1st tier memory, Japanese solid capacitors, ferrite core chokes and lower RDS (on) MOSFET, resulting in 5% - 10% lower GPU temperature, 10%~30% better overclocking capability and 10%~30% less power switching loss.
- NVIDIA PhysX TechnologyNVIDIA PhysX technology enables a totally new class of physical gaming interaction for a more dynamic and realistic experience.
- NVIDIA CUDA TechnologyCUDA technology unlocks the power of the GPU’s processor cores to accelerate the most demanding tasks such as video transcoding, physics simulation, ray tracing, and more, delivering incredible performance improvements over traditional CPUs. The CUDA technology has already been adopted by thousands of programmers to speed up those performance hungry computing applications.
- NVIDIA SLI TechnologySLI delivers up to 2x the performance of a single GPU configuration for unequaled gaming experiences by allowing two graphics cards to run in parallel. The must-have feature for performance PCI Express graphics, SLI dramatically scales performance on today’s hottest games.
- NVIDIA PureVideo HD TechnologyThe combination of high-definition video decode acceleration and post-processing that delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for movies and video.
