NVIDIA’s engineering team was given a challenge: deliver a desktop GPU which integrates full system I/O and discrete-level performance in one-half the size of previous integrated graphics solutions. The result: a 16-core CUDA-capable graphics architecture that enables mainstream PC users to play the latest top-selling PC games and enjoy silky-smooth, high-definition Blu-ray video playback—all without breaking the bank.
Say hello to the NVIDIA GeForce 9400 and 9300 motherboard GPUs for desktop PCs on the Intel platform.
“We’ve combined the power of three different chips into one highly compact and efficient GPU. In doing so, we’ve redefined the level of performance people can expect from a motherboard solution to enrich visual computing experiences for mainstream systems. You can now have the performance of a discrete GPU in a small form factor PC.”
The new NVIDIA GeForce 9-Series motherboard GPUs feature:
16-cores for processing DirectX 10 games and CUDA-accelerated applications
High-quality video playback with NVIDIA PureVideo® HD technology, which offloads 100% of all video processing from the CPU to the GPU
Support for advanced audio and video connectivity, including uncompressed LPCM 7.1 audio, dual-link DVI, and HDMI
Support for NVIDIA Hybrid SLI Technology, which boosts performance up to 70% above the motherboard GPU
Single-chip design with much smaller footprint than competing chipsets makes it ideal for small form factor and ultra-slim media center PCs
