XFX GeForce 9500 GT

 

Hong Kong, July 30, 2008 - While the movie industry continues to churn out sequels and other unoriginal hype, XFX offers up something new and exciting-the XFX GeForce® 9500 GT, the ultimate multi-media multi-tasker that's known for all it can take.

 

Take One: Like taking and sharing photos? The 9500 GT delivers an improved 3D experience with Microsoft® Windows® Media Center that allows users to offload tasks from the CPU, which increases productivity and enables users to share, edit and manage photos and videos better than ever before.

 

Take Two: The 9500 GT takes video playback to a new level, with advanced PureVideo® HD technology that delivers jaw-dropping Blu-ray movie picture quality with reduced CPU utilization and low power consumption.

 

Take Three: Live to take out opponents? Offering a 3X performance increase over comparable 8 Series GPU and PCI Express 2.0 compatible cards, the 9500 GT delivers the most gaming horsepower available at this price point, and, since these cards are compatible with PCI Express and the new PCI Express 2.0 bus architecture, the 9500 GT ensures that users will be able to play all of today's-and tomorrow's-games the way they were meant to be played.

 

Take Four: All of these breath-taking features can be doubled. The XFX GeForce 9500 GT is SLI® ready, which means that users can purchase two cards to deliver twice the performance of a single-card set-up.

 

Which is why we recommend that you take five and head for your nearest e-tailer or shop.
