XFX GeForce 8800 GT Video Card - Alpha Dog Edition, 512MB DDR3, PCI
Express 2.0, SLI Ready, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV, Variable Fan Speed

XFX GeForce 8800 GT 512MB PCIe 2.0

Redefine your gaming reality with the XFX GeForce 8800 GT 512MB PCI Express
2.0 graphics card featuring the world's first DirectX® 10 GPU and a powerful
unified architecture that delivers an incredibly true-to-life gaming experience.
Power through games at record speeds and charge through game maps with vividly
realistic, sun-up to sun-down HDR lighting effects while steering clear of mind-blowing
physics effects such as explosions, fire, and smoke. And when you're not destroying
the enemy, relax watching your favorite movies with NVIDIA PureVideo™ HD technology.

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.

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.

Lumenex™ Engine

Support for 128-bit and 64-bit floating point HDR with up to 16x anti-aliasing

delivering vividly realistic lighting effects while obliterating ‘jaggies’.

DirectX 10 Geometry Shaders

Dynamic geometry creation smoothes surfaces and enables incredibly detailed
environments, shadows, and effects.

Quantum Effects™ Technology

Advanced shader processors architected for physics computation deliver
amazing performance and visual effects such as smoke, fire, and explosions.

Model 4.0 Technology

Get your box geared up for the future of games with blazing fast shader
performance and watch your characters sweat with Shader Model 4.0.

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.

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.

Vista Ready

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)
