GIGABYTE Introduces In-House Designed GeForce® 9600 GT Graphics Accelerators, Featuring A Wide Range of Leading Innovations Experience all-new Multi-Core™ Cooling, Gamer HUD™, and Ultra Durable 2 Taipei, Taiwan, Mar. 19, 2008 - GIGABYTE UNITED INC., a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards and other computing hardware solutions, today announced the launch of their new graphics accelerator, the GV-NX96T512HP, equipped with NVIDIA’s latest GeForce® 9600 GT graphics processor. The GIGABYTE GV-NX96T512HP features the industry’s best 512 MB / 256-bit GDDR3 memory, delivering the highest levels of sophisticated game rendering for a greatly enhanced gaming experience. Transporting users into a new realm of gaming excitement, the GIGABYTE GV-NX96T512HP features 64 processors as well as support for HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), delivering the highest quality High-Definition video quality for the ultimate home theater experience. Based on extensive lab testing and previous graphics card development, the GIGABYTE VGA engineering group has designed a revolutionary new VGA card cooling technology which utilizes natural convection inside the chassis to disperse heat. GIGABYTE’s Multi-Core™ Cooling Technology utilizes a series of ultra-thin layered fins with nodes of copper to add more cooling points on the heat pipes. Increasing the heat conduction ratio and enhancing overall thermal performance, GIGABYTE’s Multi-Core™ Technology delivers ultimate thermal efficiency up to 76%. GIGABYTE is also excited to showcase at this year’s CeBIT their latest Gamer HUD™ (Heads Up Display) software utility, designed to allow hardcore gaming enthusiasts to tweak the highest levels of performance from their VGA card. GIGABYTE’s Gamer HUD™ utility features Voltage Gear Overdrive, the world’s first software solution that allows voltage adjusting purely though software control. With multi-level GPU voltage control settings, users are able to squeeze the highest amount of performance from their cards. GIGABYTE’s Gamer HUD™ utility also supports adjusting of GPU clock, shader and memory settings, for maximum overclocking performance. In addition, GIGABYTE’s Gamer HUD™ provides advanced power savings through its auto-optimized 2D/3D GPU frequency switching feature. When enabling 2D applications such as email, web browsing and media playback, the GPU frequency is lowered to 2D mode allowing the graphics card to save power consumption. For more graphics intensive applications such as gaming and 3D rendering, the 3D switch is activated, raising the GPU frequency to allow for the greatest level of performance. GIGABYTE’s 2D/3D switch can be set on Auto-Optimized Mode (Enable) or Customizable Mode (Disable), according to users’ preference. GIGABYTE VGA cards are designed with the industry’s most leading-edge features including high quality, highly efficient components. Equipped with GIGABYTE’s Ultra Durable 2 Technology which utilizes Ferrite Core Chokes, Low RDS (on) MOSFETs and Lower ESR Solid Capacitors, GIGABYTE VGA cards provide the stability and reliability hardcore gamers have come to expect from their high-end graphics solution. Also featuring a state-of-the-art power design and layout, GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 Edition graphics cards deliver the ideal integration of thermal, electric characteristics, digital signals, power circuitry and optimum placement for enhanced graphics performance, improving the stability of the electric voltage and current, for the ultimate in graphics overclocking capabilities.
