NVIDIA GPU Boost Technology
Dynamically maximizes clock speeds based on workload of the game to push performance to new levels and bring out the best in every game.
Next generation streaming multiprocessor built from the ground up for incredible performance and power efficiency.
NVIDIA FXAA Technology
Shader-based anti-aliasing technology available from the NVIDIA Control Panel that enables ultra-fast anti-aliasing in hundreds of PC games.
Microsoft® DirectX® 11 Support
DirectX 11 GPU with Shader Model 5.0 support designed for ultra high performance in the new API’s key graphics feature, GPU-accelerated tessellation.
NVIDIA ® 3D Vision™ Ready
GeForce GPU support for NVIDIA 3D Vision, bringing a fully immersive stereoscopic 3D experience to the PC. A combination of high-tech wireless glasses and advanced software, 3D Vision transforms hundreds of PC games into full stereoscopic 3D. In addition, you can watch 3D movies and 3D digital photographs in eye popping, crystal-clear quality.
NVIDIA ® 3D Vision™ Surround Ready
Expand your games across three displays in full stereoscopic 3D for the ultimate “inside the game” experience with the power of NVIDIA 3D Vision and SLI technologies. NVIDIA ® Surround ™ also supports triple screen gaming with non-stereo displays.
NVIDIA TXAA Technology
Support for new temporal anti-aliasing technique that delivers the ultimate combination of image quality and performance.
NIVIDIA® 3-waySLI® technology
Industry leading NVIDIA SLI technology offers amazing performance scaling for the world’s premier gaming solution.
NIVIDIA® PhysX® technology
GeForce GPU support for NVIDIA PhysX technology, enabling a totally new class of physical gaming interaction for a more dynamic and realistic experience with GeForce.
NIVIDIA® Adaptive Vsync
Dynamically enables vertical sync based on your current frame rates for the smoothest gaming experience.
Inno3D ® iChill GeForce ® GTX 680/670 Black Series Accelero Hybrid is the first graphics cooler with integrated air and liquid solution in the after-market. It offers an all-in-one solution with 200% cooling performance and 9 times quieter than the stock cooler. It is also the first LCS to have an integrated active fan specifically designed to cool RAM and VR. furthermore, it is simple to use, maintenance-free and excellent value for money.
Traditionally GPU liquid cooling is expensive, complicated and adopted by only the most technical audience, the GPU however is now one of the most power hungry and hottest components you’ll find in a high-end PC and will benefit from the iChill liquid cooling system even more than CPUs.
