ZOTAC International (MCO) Ltd., a leading NVIDIA partner, today announced the
two latest additions to its silent ZONE Edition product lineup – the ZOTAC
GeForce 9500GT DDR2 and GeForce 9500GT DDR3 ZONE Editions. The new ZOTAC GeForce
9500GT ZONE Editions pair the high-performance of NVIDIA’s GeForce 9500GT
graphics processor with passive cooling for a silent graphical computing
experience.

The ZOTAC GeForce 9500GT DDR2 and GeForce 9500GT DDR3 ZONE Editions eliminate
noise from the graphics card by replacing the active GPU cooler on ZOTAC GeForce
9500GT DDR2 and GeForce 9500GT DDR3 models. In place of the active GPU cooler is
a large passive cooler that allows the ZOTAC GeForce 9500GT ZONE Editions to
operate silently.

“We sought to eliminate noise from our affordable ZOTAC GeForce 9500GT DDR2
and DDR3 models,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International (MCO)
Ltd. “Our ZOTAC GeForce 9500GT ZONE Editions are the result, and shows users can
have a premium silent high-performance graphics card at an affordable price.”

As with the other NVIDIA GeForce 9500GT-based products, the ZOTAC GeForce
9500GT ZONE Editions feature NVIDIA’s unified architecture with 32 blazing-fast
stream processors. The 32 stream processors are paired with 512MB of high-speed
GDDR2 or GDDR3 graphics memory, connected via 128-bit wide bus to keep up with
the demands of 3D gaming.

“Our ZOTAC GeForce 9500GT ZONE Editions are no compromise silent graphics
cards,” Mr. Berger added. “We’re able to offer performance that matches our
standard ZOTAC GeForce 9500GT DDR2 and DDR3 models while operating silently.”

In addition to high-performance, the ZOTAC GeForce 9500GT ZONE Editions
feature a second-generation PureVideo HD video-processing engine, making the
cards ideal solutions for digital home applications such as home theater PCs.
PureVideo HD technology enhances and cleans up all digital video content for
optimal viewing on high-definition displays up to Full HD 1080p resolutions.

PureVideo HD technology is also ideal for watching high-definition content
such as Blu-ray and HD DVD movies. The PureVideo HD video-processing engine
decodes high-definition H.264 content, typically used by Blu-ray and HD DVD
movies, completely using the GPU to free up the CPU for more mundane tasks.
High-definition VC-1 encoded content also receives hardware accelerated decoding
with the PureVideo HD video-processing engine, for low CPU utilization during
playback.

The ZOTAC GeForce 9500GT ZONE Editions also feature HDMI output via included
DVI-to-HDMI adapter and S/PDIF audio input so users can connect any S/PDIF
capable audio device to the graphics card for simultaneous audio and video
output. Additionally, the dual dual-link DVI outputs, HDMI included, are HDCP
complaint, allowing users to view protected high-definition content, when
connected to an HDCP capable display.
Prepare for a gaming and multimedia experience that’s big on performance, easy
on the wallet and silent in operation with the ZOTAC GeForce 9500GT ZONE
Editions.
