AOpen launches the most powerful next-generation VGA card, Aeolus
7800GTX-DVD256, built with NVIDIA’s "Full-Throttle Graphics processor". The new
VGA card is driven by NVIDIA’s GeForce 7800GTX graphics processing unit (GPU),
embedded with CineFX 4.0 engine. Aeolus 7800GTX-DVD256 delivers almost two times
(2x) the shading power of previous generation products taking gaming performance
to extreme levels. The Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 support ensures
top-notch compatibility and performance for all DirectX 9 applications,
including Shader Model 3.0 titles. In order to provide extra benefits to its
users, AOpen bundles the new VGA card with gaming application – Second Sight
(optional).

AOpen launches the most powerful next-generation VGA card, Aeolus
7800GTX-DVD256, built with NVIDIA’s "Full-Throttle Graphics processor".

The new VGA card is driven by NVIDIA’s GeForce 7800GTX graphics processing unit
(GPU), embedded with CineFX 4.0 engine.

Full-Throttle Graphics and Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Compatible
The CineFX 4.0 engine delivers advanced visual effects at unimaginable speeds.
The VGA card’s full support for Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 enables
stunning and mind-blowing special effects. The next-generation shader
architecture with texture unit design streamlines texture processing for faster
and smoother gameplay.

Two Times Shading Power for Top-notch Gaming
Aeolus 7800GTX-DVD256 delivers almost two times (2x) the shading power of
previous generation products taking gaming performance to extreme levels. The
Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 support ensures top-notch compatibility
and performance for all DirectX 9 applications, including Shader Model 3.0
titles.

Supporting Next-generation Microsoft “Longhorn” OS
The new texture core accelerates 64-bit floating point texture filtering,
shading, blending for state-of-the-art high dynamic range visual effects. The
architecture of the display card is designed for the next-generation Microsoft
“Longhorn” operating system.

Supporting SLI technology
Another great feature of the display card is its support to the SLI technology.
The card delivers almost two times (2x) the performance of a single CPU for
unparallel gaming experiences by allowing two graphics display cards to run in
parallel. The SLI technology, which is the must-have feature for performance PCI
Express graphics, dramatically scales performance on over 60 top PC games.

When two graphics cards with both supporting SLI technology run in parallel for
3Dmark2003/2005 benchmark test, they always outperform a PC installed with only
one graphics card. Therefore, buying the SLI card is no other than making an
investment which are less likely to depreciate than cards with no SLI
technology.

Intellisample 4.0 technology Offers Most Realistic Gaming Experience
The advanced visual effects engines of the card offer the most realistic gaming
experience. The NVIDIA Intellisample 4.0 technology provides outstanding visual
quality through gamma correct rotated grid antialiasing and advanced anisotropic
filtering. The improved sample coverage (up to 128 Taps) improves quality of
anisotropic filtering. Its support for normal map compression enables more
lifelike characters and environments.

Digital Home-theater Quality Video
The card’s PureVideo technology delivers digital home-theater quality video to
the PC. The dedicated video processors of the card dramatically increase its
video processing performance.

The product’s enhanced HDTV processing provides 50% efficiency improvement and
WMV9 1080p support.
The card’s multi-threading video processing functions improve video output
efficiency remarkably.

Its MPEG2 video encode and decode delivers a stunning video experience, and WMV9
decode acceleration provides unmatched performance for Microsoft Windows Media
Center Edition. The integrated HDTV-output brings content from desktop PC to
your HDTV.
