New NVIDIA Motherboard GPUs Pack Big Punch In A Small Package
With 5x More Performance in One-half the Size, New GeForce 9-Series mGPUs Tap Parallel Processors for More Than Just Graphics
SANTA CLARA, CA-OCTOBER 20, 2008-NVIDIA's engineering team was given a challenge: deliver a desktop GPU which integrates full system I/O and discrete-level performance in one-half the size of previous integrated graphics solutions. The result: a 16-core CUDA-capable graphics architecture that enables mainstream PC users to play the latest top-selling PC games and enjoy silky-smooth, high-definition Blu-ray video playback-all without breaking the bank.
NVIDIA® Introduces the GeForce® 9400 and 9300 motherboard GPUs for desktop PCs on the Intel platform.
"These new mGPUs give NVIDIA a big advantage over other integrated graphics chips," said Dr. Jon Peddie of Jon Peddie Research. "By doing so much parallel processing on a single chip, they can accelerate the new visual computing applications people are getting, and at a reasonable price. The GeForce 9400 and 9300 mGPUs set a new standard for what users should expect from today's more mainstream desktop systems."
"We've combined the power of three different chips into one highly compact and efficient GPU," said Drew Henry, general manager of MCP business unit at NVIDIA. "In doing so, we've redefined the level of performance people can expect from a motherboard solution to enrich visual computing experiences for mainstream systems. You can now have the performance of a discrete GPU in a small form factor PC."
GPUs have long been essential platforms for rendering real-time images to computer screens, but software developers and system manufacturers have only recently begun using their parallel processing power to deliver a new level of performance for a variety of visual computing applications, including Adobe Creative Suite 4 and BadaBoom. Badaboom is a video transcoding application to speed up application performance and free up the PC for doing other tasks in parallel.
The new NVIDIA GeForce 9-Series motherboard GPUs feature:
16-cores for processing DirectX 10 games and CUDA-accelerated applications
High-quality video playback with NVIDIA PureVideo® HD technology, which offloads 100% of all video processing from the CPU to the GPU
Support for advanced audio and video connectivity, including uncompressed LPCM 7.1 audio, dual-link DVI, and HDMI
Support for NVIDIA Hybrid SLI Technology, which boosts performance up to 70% above the motherboard GPU
Single-chip design with much smaller footprint than competing chipsets makes it ideal for small form factor and ultra-slim media center PCs
Motherboards featuring GeForce 9-Series motherboard GPUs are shipping this month from industry-leading motherboard partners including: ASUS, ECS, EVGA, Foxconn, Galaxy, Gigabyte, J&W, MSI, Onda, Zotac, and XFX.
