The official marketing text of Gigabyte GeForce 7800GT as supplied by the manufacturer
GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd. launches the GV-NX78T256V-B, yet another high definition next generation GIGABYTE Gaming VGA solution based on the NVIDIA GeForce 7800GT graphics processor. The new GV-NX78T256V-B introduces an incredible 20 pixel pipeline in what is arguably the industry's powerful and technically advanced graphics accelerator card. The new high-end VGA card from GIGABYTE boasts NVIDIA's top-three mainstream architectures, the Power of 3, which comprise Shader Model 3.0, HDR (High dynamic-range), and SLI technology, and also supports a host of industry wide technological advancements such as OpenGL 2.0 and Microsoft Vista™ 64-bit operating systems.

CineFX 4.0 Engine
Through CineFX 4.0 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 4.0 that streamlines the creation of complex visual effects.
Intellisample™ 4.0
The industry’s fastest antialiasing delivers ultra-realistic visuals, with no jagged edges, at lightning-fast speeds. Visual quality is taken to new heights through a new rotated grid sampling pattern, advanced 128 Tap sample coverage, 16x anisotropic filtering, and support for transparency supersampling and multisampling.
UltraShadow™ II
Enhances the performance of bleeding-edge games, like id Software's Doom 3, that feature complex scenes with multiple light sources and objects. 2nd-generation technology delivers more than 4x the shadow processing power over the previous generation.

SLI™ Technology
Delivers up to 2X the performance of a single GPU configuration for unparalleled gaming experiences by allowing two graphics cards to run in parallel. The must-have feature for performance PCI Express graphics, SLI dramatically scales performance on 60 top PC games.

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.
OpenGL 2.0® Optimizations and Support
Ensure top-notch compatibility and performance for all OpenGL 2.0 application.
Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0C
Ensures the best performance and application compatibility for all DirectX 9.0C applications.
Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 Shader Model 3.0
Provide infinite program command length creating photorealistic scenes and environments in games, without compromising overall PC performance.

PCI Express

Graphics adapter RAMDAC
400 MHz
Graphics adapter memory type*
The type of memory used by the video card. Often a combination of dedicated memory (Video RAM or VRAM) and dynamic system memory is used. UMA stands for Unified Memory Architecture, and is a computer memory architecture that allows the graphics processing unit to share system memory. Other abreviations: RAM = Random Access Memory, SDRAM = synchronous dynamic RAM, DDR = double-data-rate.
Memory bus*
Hardware and software that connects the main memory to the memory controller in computer systems. Originally, general-purpose buses like VMEbus and the S-100 bus were used, but to reduce latency, modern memory buses are designed to connect directly to DRAM chips, and thus are designed by chip standards bodies such as JEDEC.
