Overview

Upgrade your ThinkCentre® desktop system with one of the new PCI Express ThinkCentre Graphics Adapter upgrades to experience superior image quality (depending on attached monitor) and system performance.

By adding a separate graphics adapter, you can improve overall system performance and help increase your productivity when you have:

The demands of graphic-intensive software for desktop publishing, animation, presentation, and other multimedia formats

The need to view multiple operations such as manufacturing or financial transactions simultaneously across dual monitors

By installing a separate graphics adapter with dedicated memory and superior graphics processor (compared to embedded graphics) to perform all graphics functions, you can significantly offload the system CPU and main memory resources from demanding graphics tasks. This enables your latest software applications to run faster and appear better while improving overall system performance.

You can benefit from the improved image filtering a dedicated graphics adapter can deliver, such as:

Smoothing jagged edges and stair-like effects.

Removing or reducing blocky artifacts (dropout and jagged edges) from live streaming Internet video.

Producing razor-sharp DVD and video playback (depending on attached monitor).

Making a noticeable difference in the performance and look of presentations with embedded video clips.

Providing a more detailed and distinct image with closer to life quality.
