NVIDIA® GeForce® 7300 GT GPUs
Features and Benefits
Next-Generation Superscalar GPU Architecture
Delivers over 2x the shading power of previous generation products taking gaming performance to
extreme levels.
Full Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 Support
The standard for today’s PCs and next-generation consoles enables stunning and complex effects
for cinematic realism. NVIDIA GPUs offer the most complete implementation of the Shader Model
3.0 feature set—including vertex texture fetch (VTF)—to ensure top-notch compatibility and
performance for all DirectX 9 applications.
NVIDIA® CineFX® 4.0 Engine
Delivers advanced visual effects at unimaginable speeds. Full support for Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0
Shader Model 3.0 enables stunning and complex special effects. Next-generation shader
architecture with new texture unit design streamlines texture processing for faster and smoother
NVIDIA® SLI™ Technology1
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 today’s hottest
NVIDIA® Intellisample™ 4.0 Technology
The industry’s fastest antialiasing delivers ultra-realistic visuals, with no jagged edges, at lightningfast 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 transparent
supersampling and multisampling.
True High Dynamic-Range (HDR) Rendering Support
The ultimate lighting effects bring environments to life for a truly immersive, ultra-reailstic
experience. Based on the OpenEXR technology from Industrial Light & Magic
(http://www.openexr.com/), NVIDIA’s 64-bit texture implementation delivers state-of-the-art high
dynamic-range (HDR) visual effects through floating point capabilities in shading, filtering, texturing,
and blending.
