  • Introduction
    GIGABYTE UNITED INC., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, is yet again changing the face of silent graphics card solutions with the release of the breakthrough Silent-Pipe series third generation—Silent-Pipe 3™. Combining three GIGABYTE proprietary thermal designs: Silent-Pipe II™ recommended by Tom’s Hardware and awarded by AnandTech, Silent-Pipe™ known by gamers worldwide for its unmatched silent operation and Screen-Cooling™ for entry-level cards. Silent-Pipe 3™ delivers the very latest in passive cooling technologies.
    Based on extensive lab testing and previous graphics card development, the GIGABYTE VGA engineering group has designed a revolutionary new VGA card cooling technology which utilizes natural convection inside the chassis to disperse heat. Similar to the principle of turbulence in fluid dynamics, Silent-Pipe 3™ introduces an all-new concept of VGA card cooling ─Inner Turbulence Fluid Mechanics Design. Utilizing a series of layered long and short fins with trapezoid punches, Silent-Pipe 3™ transforms laminar (smooth) air flow into turbulent (rough) air flow inside the heat sink, increasing the heat exchange ratio and enhancing overall thermal performance.
  • RoHS Compliant
    As a citizen of the global village, GIGABYTE exert ourselves to be a pioneer in environment care. Give the whole of Earth a promise that our products do not contain any of the restricted substances in concentrations and applications banned by the RoHS Directive, and are capable of being worked on at the higher temperatures required for lead free solder. One Earth and GIGABYTE Cares!
  • nView® Multi-Display Technology
    Advanced technology provides the ultimate in viewing flexibility and control for multiple monitors. NVIDIA GPUs are enabled to support multi-displays, but graphics cards vary.
  • SLI™ Technology
    Delivers up to 2X the performance of a single GPU configuration for unparalleled gaming experiences by allowing two graphics cards to run in parallel. The must-have feature for performance PCI Express graphics, SLI dramatically scales performance on 60 top PC games.
  • PureVideo™
    PureVideo™ technology ensures support for new video formats, while its motion estimation engine (MEE) allows the card to record and play video files simultaneously without interrupting system performance. An added value PureVideo™ provides is its high-definition MPEG-2 and WMV HD hardware accelerator that take on much of the heavy lifting during playback of Hi-Def video. Other video playback enhancements include a unique color correction mechanism that will help to create a home theater from a PC.
  • OpenGL 2.0® Optimizations and Support
    Ensure top-notch compatibility and performance for all OpenGL 2.0 application.
  • PCI Express
    Designed to run perfectly with the next-generation PCI Express bus architecture. This new bus doubles the bandwidth of AGP 8X delivering over 4 GB/sec. in both upstream and downstream data transfers.
  • HDCP Support
    High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is a form of copy protection technology designed to prevent transmission of non-encrypted high-definition content as it travels across DVI or HDMI digital connections.
  • Display Support
    *Dual integrated 400MHz RAMDACs for analog display resolutions up to and including 2048x1536 at 75Hz.
    *Dual-link DVI capability to drive the industry's largest and highest resolution digital flat panel displays up to 2560x1600 at 60 Hz.
    *Integrated HDTV encoder provides analog TV-output (Component/Composite/S-Video) up to 1080i resolution....more information
