MSI NX8600GTS/GT and NX8500GT Series

MSI has launched the new MSI graphics card – NX8600GTS/GT and NX8500GT Series. They pack in the latest Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT/GTS and GeForce 8600 GT graphics processor which deliver superior cinematic resolution and high performance acceleration for today’s demanding 3D graphic applications.

The MSI NX8600GTS/GT and NX8500GT Series are the perfect choices with the most sensible prices for the most complete solution for the 3D and video application market.

The NX8600 series includes various state-of-the-art technologies such as the Nvidia Lumenex Engine which delivers awesome image quality and floating point accuracy at ultra-fast frame rates. Microsoft DirectX 10 Shader Model 4.0 for great gaming experiences, and OpenGL 2.0 to ensure top-notch compatibility and performance for all OpenGL 2.0 applications.

In addition, the new Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT/GTS and GeForce 8500GT also have support for 128-bit floating point texture filtering for high dynamic-range (HDR) lighting effects. With HDR, twice the precision of prior generations for incredibly realistic lighting effects. It also now comes with support for anti-aliasing. It can light objects close to the way human eyes catch color in the real world. While the Nvidia IntellisampleT 4.0 technology offers exceptional visual quality through gamma correct rotated grid antialiasing and advanced anisotropic filtering, its support for normal map compression enables more lifelike characters and environments.

Furthermore, the MSI NX8600GTS/GT and NX8500GT Series consist of Nvidia PureVideo technology and Hardware Decode Acceleration, offering ultra-smooth playback of H.264, VC-1, WMV, MPEG-2 HD and SD movies. Blazing-fast RAMDACs support dual QXGA displays with ultra-high refresh rates-up to 2048×1536@85Hz, and 3:2 pull-down correction for watching DVD movies.
