The new PCI Express 2.0 interface delivers more power and greater data throughput in new generation PCI Express 2.0 compatible motherboards while maintaining backwards compatible with existing PCI Express x16 motherboards. The new PCI Express 2.0 interface sends data to the graphics card‘s 512MB of GDDR3 video memory for smooth performance and realistic textures in current and next-generation PC games. The 512MB of GDDR3 video memory communicates with the graphics processor with its ultra-wide 256-bit memory interface.

The ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GT 512MB ZT-88TES2P-FSP graphics card features 1800 MHz GDDR3 memory paired with the NVIDIA G92 GeForce 8800 GT graphics processor. The ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GT also features a boosted core clock to 660 MHz, up from the NVIDIA specified 600 MHz for an added performance boost. Compatibility with Microsoft's DirectX 10 and Shader Model 4.0 ensures the ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GT is ready for next-generation gaming titles. With NVIDIA Unified Shader Architecture, the GeForce 8800 GT features 112 stream processors for unparalleled 3D processing capabilities.

Backed by NVIDIA's Lumenex Engine, the ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GT delivers true 128-bit floating point high dynamic range, or HDR, lighting capabilities with up to 16x full-screen anti-aliasing. Second-generation NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology with HDCP compliance delivers the ultimate high-definition video viewing experience to the ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GT 512MB Video Card ZT-88TES2P-FSP PN:151-01080-076VU.

With hardware decoding for Blu-ray and HD DVD formats, PureVideo HD technology lowers CPU utilization when watching high-definition video formats by decoding the entire video stream in the graphics processor, freeing up the processor for other tasks. In addition to low CPU utilization, PureVideo HD enhances standard definition video content with de-interlacing and other post-processing algorithms to ensure standard DVD movies look their best on the PC screen and high-definition television sets. High definition content protection, or HDCP, technology ensures a secure connection between the ZOTAC GeForce 8800 GT 512MB graphics card and an HDCP capable monitor for viewing protected content such as high-definition Blu-ray or HD DVD movies.
