    Windows Vista is the first operating system to require a GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) to realize the best experience possible.
  • PCI Express 2.0 Support
    PCI Express Base 2.0 specification doubles the interconnect bit rate from 2.5 GT/s to 5 GT/s in a seamless and compatible manner. The performance boost to 5 GT/s is by far the most important feature of the PCI Express 2.0 specifications. It effectively increases the aggregate bandwidth of a 16-lane link to approximately 16 GB/s. The higher bandwidth will allow product designers to implement narrower interconnect links to achieve high performance. (backwards compatible with PCI Express)
