NVIDIA CUDA™ Technology3 :
CUDA technology unlocks the power of the GPU’s processing cores to accelerate the most demanding system tasks – such as video encoding – delivering up to 7x performance over traditional CPUs.
NVIDIA PureVideo® HD Technology4
The combination of high-definition video decode acceleration and post-processing that delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for movies and video.
NVIDIA HybridPower™ Technology5
Lets you switch from the GeForce GTX 260 graphics card to the motherboard GeForce GPU when running non graphically-intensive applications for a quiet, low power PC experience.
1 - The GeForce GTX 260 GPU ships with hardware support for NVIDIA PhysX technology. NVIDIA PhysX drivers are required to experience in-game GPU PhysX acceleration. Refer to www.nvidia.com/PhysX for more information.
2 - NVIDIA SLI-certified versions of GeForce PCI Express GPUs only. A GeForce GTX 260 GPU must be paired with another GeForce GTX 260 GPU (graphics card manufacturer can be different). SLI requires sufficient system cooling and a compatible power supply. Visit www.slizone.com for more information and a listing of SLI-Certified components.
3 - Requires application support for CUDA technology.
4 - Feature requires supported video software. Features may vary by product.
5 Requires NVIDIA HybridPower™-enabled motherboard.
