Graphics Cards support Microsoft® DirectX® 10.

Press Release Summary:

Based on NVIDIA® GeForce® 8 Series architecture, XLR8(TM) GeForce 8800 GTX and GTS deliver graphics realism and film-quality effects in real-time. They include fully unified shader core, which dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics, or pixel shading operations. GeForce 8800 GTX provides 768 MB high-speed GDDR3 frame buffer memory and 575 MHz core clock, while GeForce 8800 GTS features 640 MB high-speed GDDR3 frame buffer memory and 500 MHz core clock.

Original Press Release:

PNY Technologies Launches High Performance XLR8(TM) Brand of Graphics Cards Based on NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) 8 Series of GPUs

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Nov. 8 /-- PNY Technologies(R), Inc. today announced immediate availability of two new, high-performance graphics cards built to support Microsoft(R) DirectX(R) 10 with full Shader Model 4.0. Based on the NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) 8 Series architecture, PNY's new XLR8(TM) performance edition GeForce 8800 GTX and GeForce 8800 GTS combine features that deliver unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects all rendered in real-time.

"Extreme high definition gaming is pushed to new levels with PNY's XLR8 Performance Edition graphics cards," said Nicholas Mauro, senior marketing manager for PNY Technologies consumer graphics cards and memory. "Our new XLR8 product line offers a complete gaming solution, which includes high performance graphics cards and low latency memory designed for enthusiasts who demand more from their hardware purchases."

New features introduced on the NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series include a fully unified shader core, which dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics, or pixel shading operations. The cards' unified stream processors efficiently process geometry shader programs, while reducing dependence on the CPU. Moreover, Shader Model 4.0 support enables more complex operations on the GPU, reducing the load and CPU cycles that can be applied to game A.I. (artificial intelligence) complexity. As with previous models, PNY's new XLR8 graphics cards support NVIDIA SLI(TM) technology for up to 2x the performance of a single graphics card.

NVIDIA's GigaThread(TM) technology supports thousands of independent, simultaneous threads, providing extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next generation shader programs. Stream out allows programmers to add more detail without having to re-render the entire pipeline. Geometry Shaders permits geometry creation and tessellation, which smoothes curved surfaces and enables more lifelike character animation, including realistic facial expressions and hair.
