GeForce 9 Series

Nvidia Corp. unveils three new desktop GeForce 9 Series graphics processing units (GPUs) that bring support for Nvidia PhysX technology and CUDA general-purpose parallel computing to mainstream PC computing markets.

According to the company, the new GeForce 9800 GTX+, 9800 GT, and the 9500 GT GPUs deliver exceptional graphics quality, performance, and application compatibility, along with support for NVIDIA SLI technology, across a wide variety of price points, including under Rs.4,282.07 ($100).

"The addition of the new 9800 GTX+, 9800 GT, and the 9500 GT GPUs brings a new level of visual computing capability to additional mainstream market segments," said Ujesh Desai, general manager of desktop GPUs at Nvidia.

The GPUs, says Nvidia are also the only ones to support PhysX technology, the world's most pervasive physics development platform that is already delivering dynamic 3D realism to more than 140 games across multiple platforms and is in use by more than 25,000 developers worldwide. According to the company, with PhysX, developers can incorporate effects such as rigid body dynamics, collision detection, and cloth simulation that dramatically change the way the games are played and how the on-screen stories unfold, and then accelerate those effects using the processing power of the GeForce GPU.
