GIGABYTE Unveils Advanced Graphics Accelerator for Ultra Realistic Physics Effects
Physics Engine Accelerated GIGABYTE GV-N98XP-512H-B

Taipei, Taiwan, August 5, 2008 –GIGABYTE UNITED INC., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today launched their new graphic accelerator, the GV-N98XP-512H-B. Equipped with NVIDIA's latest 9800GTX+ graphics processor with 128 stream processors and featuring 512MB GDDR3 memory, the GIGABYTE provides the highest level of sophisticated 3D game rendering for and enhanced level of game play.

The GV-N98XP-512H-B is equipped with NVIDIA PhysX technology, enabling a totally new class of physical gaming interaction for a more dynamic and realistic gaming experience. With NVIDIA PhysX technology, gamers are able to experience realistic physics effects such as explosion effects, complex characters and objects in motion. In additional to PhysX, CUDA technology further unlocks the power of the GPU’s processor cores to accelerate the most demanding system tasks - such as video transcoding - delivering incredible performance improvements over traditional CPUs.

Integrated with unique 3-way NVIDIA SLI® Technology, the GIGABYTE GV-N98XP-512H-B is able to offer amazing performance scaling by implementing 4-way AFR (Alternate Frame Rendering), for the world’s fastest gaming solution under Windows Vista with solid, state-of-the-art drivers. With NVIDIA HybridPower™ Technology, the GIGABYTE GV-N98XP-512H-B automatically switches from the GeForce 9800 GTX+ GPU to the motherboard GeForce GPU when running non graphically-intensive applications for a silent, low power PC experience.

The GIGABYTE GV-N98XP-512H-B also features NVIDIA's latest advanced technologies including GigaThread™ technology, which, through the use of a massively multi-threaded architecture, is able to create thousands of independent, simultaneous threads, providing extreme processing efficiency for advanced, next generation shader programs. Additionally, the GIGABYTE GV-N98XP-512H-B supports NVIDIA's Quantum Effects™ technology, enabling a new level of physics effects to be simulated and rendered on the GPU.

The GIGABYTE GV-N98XP-512H-B also supports the latest video output interfaces, including Dual Dual-Link DVI, for the highest dual 2560X1600 screen resolution.
