ZOTAC Launches GeForce 9600GT and GeForce 9800GT Synergy Edition

ZOTAC International, a leading manufacturer of NVIDIA-based graphics cards, today unleashes its new GeForce Synergy Edition graphics card lineup. The new ZOTAC GeForce Synergy Editions deliver the phenomenal gaming experience of NVIDIA’s GeForce 9 graphics processors to budget-minded gamers and enthusiasts. Two new GeForce 9-based graphics cards kick off the ZOTAC GeForce Synergy Edition lineup – the GeForce 9800GT Synergy Edition and GeForce 9600GT Synergy Edition – delivering the power of NVIDIA’s Unified Architecture, PhysX and PureVideo HD technology to value price points.

“As PC gaming demands increase, more graphics power is needed to deliver a smooth experience. Our new ZOTAC GeForce Synergy Editions delivers the power of our award winning GeForce 9800GT and GeForce 9600GT series at a value price,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International.

The ZOTAC GeForce 9800GT Synergy Edition packs the power of 112 blazing-fast stream processors while the GeForce 9600GT Synergy Edition packs 64 ultra-fast stream processors ready to take on Microsoft DirectX 10, OpenGL 2.1 and NVIDIA CUDA-based 3D games and software applications. Both ZOTAC GeForce Synergy Edition models are equipped with 512MB of GDDR3 memory connected to a wide 256-bit memory interface for smooth high-definition gaming capabilities.

NVIDIA PhysX technology empowers the new ZOTAC GeForce Synergy Editions with physics processing capabilities for realistic environmental interactivity in supported games. PhysX technology also provides unprecedented realism with life-like weather and explosion effects for a gaming experience that immerses gamers into a realistic virtual world.

“Previously you had to purchase an expensive add-in card to experience PhysX technology. Our ZOTAC GeForce Synergy Editions allow gamers to take advantage of PhysX technology without having to purchase a separate add-in PhysX card,” Mr. Berger added.

NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology enables users to enjoy vivid high-definition Blu-ray movies on high-definition TV sets or monitors with the ZOTAC GeForce Synergy Editions. NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology also enhances standard definition content to near-high-definition levels of visual quality.

Can't the 8800GT just die? This rebadging is getting nearly as bad as GM.
