NVIDIA® GeForce® 7600 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
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 gameplay.
NVIDIA® 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 today’s hottest games.
NVIDIA® Intellisample™ 4.0 Technology: The industry’s fastest antialiasing delivers ultrarealistic 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 transparent supersampling and multisampling.
True High Dynamic-Range (HDR) Rendering Support: The ultimate lighting effects bring
environments to life for a truly immersive, ultra-realistic 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.
NVIDIA® PureVideo™ Technology**: The combination of high-definition video processors
and decoder software delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and
precise image scaling for all video content to turn your PC into a high-end home theater.
Adaptable Programmable Video Processor**: PureVideo’s programmable technology
adapts to new video encoding formats as they are developed to provide a future-proof
video solution.
High-Definition H.264, MPEG-2, and WMV Hardware Acceleration**: Smoothly
playback H.264, MPEG-2, and WMV video—including WMV HD—with minimal CPU
usage so the PC is free to do other work.

Advanced Spatial Temporal De-Interlacing**: Smoothes video and DVD playback on
progressive displays to deliver a crisp, clear picture that rivals high-end home theater
High-Quality Scaling: High-quality scaling technology delivers a clear, clean image at
any window size, including full-screen HDTV resolutions up to 1080p.
Video Color Correction**: Corrects differences in color characteristics of RGB
monitors and TV monitors through NVIDIA PureVideo’s ProcAmp Color Controls setting,
such as brightness and contrast. Display gamma correction ensures videos are not too
dark, overly bright, or washed out regardless of the video format or display.
Integrated HDTV Encoder: Provides analog TV-output (Component/Composite/SVideo) up to 1080i resolution.
NVIDIA® UltraShadow™ II Technology: Enhances the performance of bleeding-edge games,
like id Software’s DOOM 3, that feature complex scenes with multiple light sources and objects.
128-Bit Studio-Precision Computation: 128-bit studio-precision computation through the
entire pipeline prevents image defects due to low precision and ensures the best image quality
for even the most demanding applications.
Full-Speed 32-Bit Color Precision: Delivers increased image quality with no performance
NVIDIA® ForceWare® Unified Driver Architecture (UDA): Delivers 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 continuous
performance and feature updates over the life of NVIDIA GeForce GPUs.
OpenGL® 2.0 Optimizations and Support: Ensures top-notch compatibility and performance
for OpenGL applications.
NVIDIA® nView® Multi-Display Technology: Advanced technology provides the ultimate in
viewing flexibility and control for multiple monitors.
NVIDIA® Digital Vibrance Control® 3.0 Technology: Allows the user to adjust color controls
digitally to compensate for the lighting conditions of their workspace, in order to achieve
accurate, bright colors in all conditions.
PCI Express Support: Designed to run perfectly with the next-generation PCI Express bus
architecture. This new bus doubles the bandwidth of AGP 8X delivering over 4 GB/sec. in both
upstream and downstream data transfers.
Dual 400MHz RAMDACs: Blazing-fast RAMDACs support dual QXGA displays with ultra-high,
ergonomic refresh rates–up to 2048x1536@85Hz.
