With advanced GDDR5 memory technology enabling up to twice the bandwidth per pin as compared to GDDR3 memory users can now experience the speed, responsiveness and performance of ultra-high bandwidth for processor-intensive multitasking and gaming.
The system offers maximum test speeds of 3.2 Gb/s and also can test GDDR3 and GDDR4.
Packing 1792MB of screaming-fast GDDR3 video memory, the ZOTAC GeForceA GTX 275 1792MB is ready to take on high resolution gaming with resolutions up to 2560x1600.
The ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4800 series graphics processors are the industry's first to support GDDR5 memory technology, providing nearly twice the memory bandwidth of GDDR3 and GDDR4, contributing to improvements in game play and performance.
The card's support for quad-SLI technology also means that you can also add another, identical card if you want to run your games at resolutions even higher than 1920 x 1200 pixels.With its new GeForce 9 family of graphics processing units (GPUs), nVidia seems to have changed its launch strategy, as the firm released its entry-level GPUs ahead of the top-end models.Each GPU on the MSI runs at a frequency of 600MHz, and each has access to one half of the card's 1Gbyte of GDDR3 memory.
GDDR5 offers a low-power capability as well as providing a 3x performance increase over today's 800 MHz GDDR3 chips.
To test our algorithms, we used an NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX (24 fragment processors, 580 MHz core clock cycle, 1750 MHz memory clock cycle, 512 MB GDDR3 memory, 256 bit bus) and an Intel Xeon 3.0GHz (1 MB L2 cache, 8GB DDR2 dual channel memory, 400 MHz effective memory clock cycle and 800 MHz FSB).
With a 17-inch diagonal widescreen display, this gaming notebook includes the Intel Core 2 Duo processor, NVIDIA GePorce Go 7900 GTX graphics card with 512 GDDR3 SDRAM VRAM for delivering high-end graphics for the latest 3D games and multimedia programs, as well as a DVI-D output port to allow users to connect to an HDTV.
-- NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500 -- Delivers 256MB GDDR3 frame buffer, two dual-link DVI connectors, a stereo connector and industry leading 42.2MB/s memory bandwidth
But not one of them is the new iMac with a "20-inch widescreen LCD with 1680x1050 resolution, 2.0GHz Intel Core Duo with 2MB shared L2 cache, 512MB (single SODIMM) 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM, 250GB Serial ATA hard drive, slot-load 8x double-layer SuperDrive, ATI Radeon XI600 graphics with 128MB GDDR3 My iPod is all right but three months after I bought it Apple introduced the video version memory, built-in AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth 2.0." I mean, our computers do not have iSight, iLife, iThis, meThat!
With outstanding performance and stability, the FireGL V7100 features 256 MB of GDDR3 unified graphics memory, 16 pixel pipelines and 6 geometry engines and dual display support via two DVI outputs creating an immersive work environment.
