GIGABYTE Technology Co. Ltd., a world-leading VGA card manufacturer, today introduced the much anticipated GV-3D1-68GT, the most powerful and technically advanced GIGABYTE graphics accelerator card to date with a monster score of more than 20,000 in 3Dmark03, and just under 10,000 in 3Dmark05. As the successor to the infamous GV-3D1 that debuted at the beginning of the year, the GV-3D1-68GT is designed around proprietary technology from GIGABYTE that harnesses two GPUs together in a single VGA card SLI configuration. Improvements to the new GIGABYTE 3D1 VGA card-series flagship include dual 16 pixel pipelines from two GeForce 6800GT GPUs, quad-view support for up to four displays at a time, and compatibility with a somewhat wider range of motherboards than the initial 3D1 VGA card offered.
CineFX 3.0 Engine
Through CineFX 3.0 engine that allows developers to create unique 3D game features and effects in both game animation and high-definition video. Gamers can get plus benefit from CineFX 3.0 that streamlines the creation of complex visual effects.
It can increase performance at higher resolutions through advances in compression technology to deliver exceptional visual quality.
Fulfill complex digital lights and realistic shadows in future-generation games, such as Doom3.
Microsoft® DirectX® Shader Model 3.0
Provide infinite program command length creating photorealistic scenes and environments in games, without compromising overall PC performance.
Ensure top-notch compatibility and performance for all OpenGL application.
Designed to run perfectly with the next-generation PCI Express bus architecture. This new bus doubles the bandwidth of AGP 8X delivering over 4 GB/sec. in both upstream and downstream data transfers.
PureVideo technology ensures support for new video formats, while its motion estimation engine (MEE) allows the card to record and play video files simultaneously without interrupting system performance. An added value PureVideo provides is its high-definition MPEG-2 and WMV HD hardware accelerator that take on much of the heavy lifting during playback of Hi-Def video. Other video playback enhancements include a unique color correction mechanism that will help to create a home theater from a PC.
3D1 Dual Graphics Processing Technology
Demonstrating remarkable R&D strength and prowess, GIGABYTE VGA card design teams succeeded in combining dual GeForce 6800 GT graphics processors with 512MB DDR3 memory and all the other electronic components onto a card that fits in a normal ATX case. Additionally, GIGABYTE engineers have improved the power supply interface for the GV-3D1-68GT to ensure stable extreme 3D performance. With its outstanding design and impressive new features, the GV-3D1-68GT is a tribute to the innovation and understanding of new technologies that differentiates GIGABYTE from other VGA card suppliers.
