Above the Competition-Integrated Graphics in the P4 Titan™ 8TRS300M

2003/12/26
Gigabyte Technology releases its all-new P4 Titan™ 8TRS300M, powered by the much anticipated ATI RS300- a chipset with a high-performing integrated graphics core. This integrated solution is targeted both at laptop and desktop systems and offers support for the latest Pentium 4 processor family with 800FSB and Hyper Threading technology. As well, the mainboard features DDR 400 memory support and is powered by the first chipset with DirectX 8.1 and OpenGL feature sets for guaranteed compatibility with a majority of 3D games. The P4 Titan™ 8TRS300M will definitely entice a wide range of users with its graphics integration, full functionality, and superior value.

The ATI Integrated Graphics Core
As mentioned, the P4 Titan™ 8TRS300M contains an integrated graphics core, the 9100 IGP, based on the Radeon 9200. Inherent to the 9100 IGP are 3D features that provide astounding visual imagery as well as enhance the overall multimedia experience. For example, ATI's SMARTSHADER™ technology takes advantage of advanced features of DirectX 8.1, enhancing realism in images and environments in the latest 3D games.

Furthermore, the ATI Vertex Shaders make a variety of effects possible through the processing of millions of vertices per second. The technology greatly enhances graphical images by adding rich detail and realism to complex characters and environments. The innovative HYPERZ™ technology boosts performance through the reduction of memory bandwidth requirements to render superior high-resolution images and true color, full-screen 3D acceleration.

For video conferencing and other on-line broadcasts, the FULLSTREAM™ technology reduces blocks in Internet streaming video to enhance visual quality by producing sharper and crisper images.

Additional Features
Along with support for advanced features and technologies, the P4 Titan™ 8TRS300M provides an integrated 10/100 Ethernet controller for networking, a 6-channel AC97 audio codec for audio functioning, and USB 2.0 support. Although the mainboard contains an integrated graphics core, it is also capable of working with external AGP 8x graphics cards. With the P4 Titan™ 8TRS300M, users can obtain an integrated graphics mainboard with support for the topmost processors, along with robust functionality and great affordability- all in a compact, space-saving Micro-ATX form factor.
