NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS
NVIDIA® GeForce® 8 series graphics processing units (GPUs) redefine the PC gaming experience. With a revolutionary unified architecture and full support for Microsoft® DirectX® 10 games, GeForce 8 series GPUs deliver unprecedented performance, extraordinarily detailed environments, and film quality game effects.

NVIDIA SLI (Scalable Link Interface)
NVIDIA SLI™ (Scalable Link Interface) technology is a revolutionary approach to scalability and increased performance. NVIDIA SLI takes advantage of the increased bandwidth of the PCI Express™ bus architecture, and features hardware and software innovations within NVIDIA GPUs (graphics processing units) and NVIDIA nForce4 MCPs (media and communications processors). Together the NVIDIA SLI patent-pending technologies work seamlessly to deliver heart-pounding PC performance. And depending on the application, NVIDIA SLI can deliver as much as 2x the performance of a single GPU configuration for unparalleled gaming experiences.

NVIDIA Unified Architecture
Fully unified shader core dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics, or pixel shading operations, delivering an incredibly true-to-life 3D graphics.

NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology
Available on HD DVDs and Blu-ray discs, high-definition movies are bringing an exciting new video experience to PC users. NVIDIA® PureVideo™ HD technology lets you enjoy cinematic-quality HD DVD and Blu-ray movies with low CPU utilization and power consumption, allowing higher quality movie playback and picture clarity.

High Dynamic Range (HDR)
High dynamic-range(HDR) lighting effects bring environments to life for a truly immersive experience. It takes advantage of the subtle light, texture, and color intricacies to create incredibly realistic environments.

NVIDIA ForceWare
It takes a powerful suite of software to complement these complex processors. NVIDIA ForceWare™ unified software environment (USE) is the key to unleashing the full power and features in NVIDIA’s desktop, platform, mobile, and multimedia products. Delivering a proven record of compatibility, reliability, and stability with the widest range of games and applications, ForceWare ensures the best out-of-box experience for every user and delivers.

HDCP Compliant
HDCP (high definition content protection) is a standard that is encoded into the video signal to prevent it from being pirated. If a source device is HDCP coded and is connected to a HDTV display or projector without the proper HDCP decoding mechanism, the picture is relegated to “snow” or in some cases, very low (480P) resolutions of the images. In order to see HDTV with HDCP compliance, both the source and display devices must be equipped with DVI connections that can enable HDCP decoding.

Windows Vista Ready
Windows Vista is the first operating system to require a GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) to realize the best experience possible.

PCI Express Support
PCI Express is a new Intel bus architecture that doubles the bandwidth of the AGP 8X bus, delivering over 4 GB per second in both upstream and downstream data transfers.
