    ZOTAC International (MCO) Ltd. today announced its latest high-performance graphics card based on the new NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS graphics processor, the ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB. The new ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB features NVIDIA's unified architecture, which packs the raw power of 128 stream processors into a single graphics processor, to deliver blazing-fast performance and life-like graphics.

    All 128 stream processors are clocked at 1625 MHz for blazing fast performance in current and next-generation game titles. NVIDIA's GigaThread Technology provides extreme rendering efficiency in 3D titles, for optimal performance with the 128 stream processors.

    The new ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB packs 512MB of ultra-fast 1940 MHz memory to store high-resolution textures used by next-generation gaming titles. The 512MB of GDDR3 memory is fed by the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS GPU clocked at 650 MHz for the ultimate gaming experience.

    “Our latest ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB provides gamers what they want – ultra-fast performance, lower power consumption and next-generation game compatibility,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International (MCO) Ltd. “The ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB raises the bar on what to expect from high-performance graphics cards.”

    NVIDIA's unified architecture is backed by a PCI Express 2.0, or PCIe 2.0, interface for up to 5GT/s of bandwidth to constantly feed the GPU with data. PCIe 2.0 features backwards compatibility with existing PCI Express X16 motherboards while paving the way for future systems and components.

    Featuring full support for Microsoft's DirectX 10 with Shader Model 4.0, the ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB delivers cinematic-quality effects and unparalleled visual realism. The cinematic-quality effects are backed by NVIDIA's Lumenex Engine for blazing-fast frame rates to deliver the ultimate next-generation gaming experience.

    NVIDIA's 16x Anti-Aliasing Technology delivers high-quality anti-aliasing to smooth out all the jagged edges in games with lightning-fast performance. NVIDIA's 128-bit floating point high-dynamic range technology ensures the best high-dynamic range, or HDR, performance for realistic lighting effects in games with anti-aliasing support.

    In addition to best-in-class 3D performance, the ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB packs a second-generation PureVideo HD video processor for the best digital home experience. The second-generation PureVideo HD video processor delivers high-quality de-interlacing, 3:2 pull down correction, edge enhancement and noise reduction to all video formats, standard and high-definition, for the best viewing experience on high-definition televisions and high-resolution monitors.

    PureVideo HD technology also decodes high-definition video formats in hardware to free up the CPU cycles for other tasks. Supported high-definition video formats include H.264 and VC-1, typically used on Blu-ray and HD DVD disks.

    The ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB supports high-definition content protection, or HDCP, technology for viewing protected content, when connected to an HDCP compatible monitor. HDCP protection is required to view high-definition Blu-ray and HD DVD video formats.

    Since all these press releases are for the same thing, couldn't they have all just been stuck in one big thread...?

    They could, but I was told to put them separate because it makes the manufacturers feel special :)

    Just an extra bit of info - this is the card that W1zz reviewed today.

    I'll just clarify for people - there is a sudden flood of these stories because lots of manufacturers have released cards today.

    As TPU is unbiased and wants to inform readers as well as it can, all of the manufacturers get their stories posted. Admittedly that could be done in one post, but because manufacturers prefer to have their stories separate, and TPU doesn't have any desire to upset them, there have been lots of stories.

    I apologise if it overwhelms the main page a bit, but at least you should have be able to find all of the subtle differences between the cards from TPU now :)
