C Programming Environment for the GPU
The NVIDIA® CUDA™ GPU computing software provides a C language environment and tool suite that unleashes new capabilities to solve complex, visualization challenges such as real-time ray tracing and interactive volume rendering.

Next-Generation Vertex and Pixel Programmability Shader Model 4.0
Reference standard for shader model 4.0 enabling a higher level of performance and ultra-realistic effects for next generation OpenGL and DirectX 10 industry-leading professional applications.

1.5GB GDDR3 Frame Buffer with Ultra Fast Memory Bandwidth
Industry’s first 1.5GB frame buffer and massive memory bandwidth up to 76.8GB/sec. delivers high throughput for interactive visualization of large models and high-performance for real time processing of large textures and frames and enables the highest quality and resolution full-scene antialiasing (FSAA).

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

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

Jumbo 8K Textures Processing
Faster processing of very large textures resulting in higher performances when zooming and panning through high resolution images.

Dual Dual-Link Digital Display Connectors
Dual dual-link TMDS transmitters support ultra-high-resolution panels (up to 3840 x 2400 @ 24Hz on each panel) -- which result in amazing image quality producing detailed photorealistic images.

NVIDIA PureVideo Technology
NVIDIA® PureVideo™ technology is the combination of high-definition video processors and software that delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for SD and HD video content. Features include, high-quality scaling, spatial temporal de-interlacing, inverse telecine, and high quality HD video playback from DVD.

NVIDIA SLI Technology
NVIDIA® SLI™ technology enables dynamically scalable graphics performance, enhanced image quality, and expanded display real-estate.

Essential for Microsoft Windows Vista
Offering an enriched 3D user interface, increased application performance, and the highest image quality, NVIDIA Quadro graphics boards and NVIDIA OpenGL ICD drivers are optimized for 32- and 64-bit architectures to enable the best Windows® Vista™ experience.
