Advanced Color Compression, Early Z-Cull
Improved pipeline color compression and early z-culling to increase effective bandwidth and improve rendering efficiency and performance.

Cg High-Level Graphics Shader Language
Cg—"C" for graphics—is a high-level, open-standard programming language that takes advantage of the power of programmable GPUs. NVIDIA Quadro® FX programmable graphics pipelines leverage high-level shading languages to enable the creation and integration of real-time photorealistic effects into 3D models, scenes, and designs. This represents a key enabler for the creation of real-time, photo-realistic visuals within CAD, DCC, and scientific applications.

Fast 3D Texture Transfer
Fast transfer and manipulation of 3D textures resulting in more interactive visualization of large volumetric dataset.

Full-Scene Antialiasing (FSAA)
Up to 32x FSAA dramatically reduces visual aliasing artifacts or "jaggies", resulting in highly realistic scenes.
