The NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 Chip, is a GPU that will unleash stunning
3D worlds for the mainstream. Powered by the same advanced
technology and features as the rest of the FX family, the GeForce
FX 5500 delivers studio-quality color and amazing cinematic gaming
effects. With 256MB of video memory and the latest NVIDIA
Technology, such as the CineFX Engine, and High-Precision Graphics,
the e-GeForce FX 5500 offers a lot in a small package.
* CineFX Engine
The NVIDIA CineFX engine allows developers to easily apply their
distinctive style to digital content, achieving cinematic visual effects
in real time with specialized graphics programs called shaders. Powered
by the CineFX engine, the GeForce FX shifts the focus from simple pixel
fill rate to sophisticated pixel shading. The GeForce FX eliminates many
programming barriers previously associated with pixel shaders by
supporting long programs for even the most elaborate effects, and
conditional branching capabilities for greater efficiency. To maximize
programming choice, the NVIDIA CineFX engine includes the most complete
hardware feature implementation for both OpenGL and Microsoft DirectX
environments, including total support for the latest DirectX 9.0 vertex
and pixel shader specifications.
Antialiasing is the key to smoothing out rough edges, or "jaggies," that
often appear on the edges of 3D geometry. The Intellisample technology's
intelligent antialiasing captures a higher-resolution version of each
image, then resizes and resamples it for output to your screen,
smoothing away imperfections. The GeForce FX's new 6XS mode delivers
silky-smooth visuals not seen in the current 4X or 4XS modes,
calculating 50% more samples. This feature is available through the
control panel, so even current games can take advantage of this stunning
new level of clarity.
The Intellisample process also uses gamma-adjusted sampling, taking into
account the dramatic physical differences between how your eyes and
monitor perceive light and color, making for much smoother and more
natural edge transitions.
* Multi-Display Option
NVIDIA s nView multi-display technology provides a revolutionary way to
multi-task and process information easier. Instead of stacking window
upon window within the confines of a single display, imagine spreading
your work across multiple displays. Financial analysts can have a
monitor for tracking each data stream. Graphic artists can use an entire
display for palettes, and another for editing. nView provides a quick
and easy way for you to multiply your Windows desktop, thereby
increasing your efficiency and enabling you to see what you ve been
* Digital Vibrance Control (DVC)
At home, at work, and on the road, our daily computer usage is
increasing, and clean visuals are critical for a satisfying, comfortable
viewing experience. Now with Digital Vibrance Control (DVC), the power
of stunning visuals is in your hands. DVC is a patent pending innovation
for controlling color separation and intensity. With a simple control
panel, you select and control the color settings of your display's
entire visual output.

of your display's entire visual output.
* Multi-Buffering (Double/Triple/Quad)
Multi-Buffering allows for smooth animation and video playback by
renering images on several invisible sheets or pages before they appear
on the screen. The video card then transfers the image to the visible
sheet or page that is shown on the monitor when it is ready to be
displayed. Because the card is not having to render all of the images at
the same time that they are displayed, this has the effect of making
video and animations much smoother and more visually appealing.
* MPEG2 Decoding Acceleration
This feature allows the graphics chip to assist a software MPEG2 decoder
program (such as nDVD) by handling various aspects of the video playback
such as scaling and color space conversion. This is very important
because it allows the CPU overhead for DVD and MPEG2 playback to be
significantly reduced and provides for superior image quality and
stability during playback.
* Open GL 1.4 Optimizations and Support
Ensures the best application compatibility performance for all OpenGL
* Unified Driver Support
Guarantees forward and backward compatibility.
