The new graphics cards ZOTAC GeForce GTX 280 and GTX 280 AMP!
Zotac today introduced a revolutionary new series of graphics cards Zotac GeForce 200 Models GeForce GTX 280 and GTX 280 AMP! Edition, through the use of Architecture Zunifikowanej NVIDIA second generation and use NVIDIA PhysX, provide an unbelievable performance in games and programs compatible with DirectX 10 and OpenGL 2.1. With a series of papers GeForce 200 also debut a new architecture Zunifikowana second generation of NVIDIA, which provides about 50-percent increase in productivity in relation to older solutions. This technology makes the power of calculation GPU graphics cards Zotac GeForce GTX 280 reaches amazing level, which is fully satisfy the expectations of even the most demanding users.
Zotac graphics card with GeForce GTX 280 is equipped with 1 GB of fast GDDR3 memory. In addition, in order to ensure adequate capacity even in the highest HD resolutions, the latest models benefit from a 512-bit memory interface. A turning solution is implemented in GeForce GTX graphics cards, 280 support NVIDIA PhysX technology, which allows the use of the GPU physics calculations in games. In this way, it is possible to create even more realistic games, not only in terms of graphics and physics but also the game.
“Technology calculating the physics GPU, it is clearly a breakthrough in the games. Support for NVIDIA PhysX cards in our series Zotac GeForce GTX 280 will allow developers to create games thus far with an interactive environment, which increasingly will resemble the real world, “said Mr. Berger. “PhysX technology will allow you to create virtual worlds, which will take into consideration such as weather or whether our impact on the environment. It all helps to significantly increase the realism of the game. ”
An additional advantage of a series of products Zotac GeForce GTX 280 is its support for NVIDIA SLI technology. This allows the user has the option of combining computing power at two or three graphics cards, which significantly raises the efficiency of the entire graphics. Zotac GeForce GTX 280 also support PureVideo HD technology, which provides smooth playback of films recorded in high-definition format. Thanks to NVIDIA for decoding HD images recorded on media such as Blu-ray is used GPU. This allows for considerable relief a central processing unit, which at that time may perform other tasks. Moreover, even in the case of video content stored on a standard format, with PureVideo HD technology you can count on considerable improvements in image quality.
Zotac graphics card with GeForce GTX 280 offers full support for PCI Express 2.0 (compatible with version 1.1), HDCP, double the output of dual-link DVI, HDTV output and support for NVIDIA CUDA technology. An additional advantage of GeForce GTX 280 card is inserted in the most recent complete game with a stable Codemaster – Race Driver: GRID.
