The AGP7600GS graphics card boasts an NVIDIA(R) 7600GS core that is part of the powerful G73 family. This core employs 90 nanometer process technology which consumes less power thus generating less heat and allowing more room for faster core frequencies. Compared to its predecessor 6600GT, the AGP7600GS boasts a 25% performance increase despite its lower core and memory frequencies - an indication of the advancement in cooler, more efficient processing technologies.
AGP7600GS uses an AGP 8x interface. The core has a frequency of 400 MHz and contains 12 pipelines. It also has 256 MB of high speed 700 MHz GDDR2 memory with a 128-bit memory bus. The AGP7600GS boasts an improved fan/heat sink which is quieter than previous generations. As well, the fan/heat sink provides better air flow, even allowing it to cool adjacent components on the card.
The AGP7600GS fully supports Microsoft(R) DirectX(R)9.0c, OpenGL 2.0, Shader Model 3.0, Intellisample 4.0 and is Windows(R) VistaTM ready. The 3D graphics calculations include high quality anti-aliasing techniques and HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology featuring the most advanced and realistic lighting effects for graphics imaging.
The AGP7600GS pushes the limits of wide-screen, high resolution display with a Dual-Link DVI connector and NVIDIA's Xtreme-HD technology supporting 2560x1600 resolutions. These innovations allow for a wider, clearer field of vision which is not only a more natural environment for your eyes but it also has gaming advantages, allowing you to see more of your surroundings, including obstacles, buildings and, in some cases, your enemies. This card also includes NVIDIA's PureVideoTM which now incorporates the latest in high compression H.264 video coding.
