New Nvidia GPU Brings DirectX 10 Graphics and HD Video to All PC Users


Nvidia today announced the extension of the NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series line-up to include three new graphics processing units, bringing high-resolution gaming, Windows Vista graphics, and HD DVD and Blu-ray video playback to everyone regardless of budget.

The new DirectX 10 GPUs include:

NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS $199-229
NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT $149-159
NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT $89-129

These three GPUs join the previously announced NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX and GeForce 8800 GTS, rounding out the product family.

All three new cards feature PureVideo HD technology, the second-generation video-processing engine that promises the highest-quality playback of HD DVD and Blu-ray movies on everyday PCs. The new programmable video processing engine takes on all of the high definition H.264 HD video decoding, freeing the CPU to perform other tasks and significantly reducing power consumption, heat, and noise.

The GeForce 8600 GTS and GeForce 8600 GT?based graphic cards promise exceptional performance at price points PC gamers love. The GeForce 8600 GPUs are ideal graphics solutions for the latest NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI-based motherboards, which are designed for gamers.

Built for Windows Vista, GeForce 8500 GT cards are designed for both casual gamers and for non-gamers, delivering a solution for HD video playback along with high gaming performance for around $100.

GeForce 8 Series GPUs are the only DirectX 10 GPUs currently available and are the reference GPUs for DirectX 10 API development and certification. GeForce 8 Series GPUs include all required hardware functionality defined in the Microsoft Direct3D 10 specification, with support for the DirectX 10 unified shader instruction set and Shader Model 4 capabilities. In addition, every GeForce 8 Series GPU features the NVIDIA PureVideo HD video processor, the NVIDIA Lumenex engine and the NVIDIA Quantum Effects technology for simulation and rendering of visual effects in games.

Graphics cards based on GeForce 8600 GTS GPUs are available now from Nvidoa's partners. Graphics cards based on GeForce 8600 GT and GeForce 8500 GT will be available on or before May 1, 2007.
