- About NVIDIA
Imagine not being able to distinguish between a movie playing on your TV and a game running on your PC; where the line between real-time 3D graphics and prerendered cinematic effects is completely blurred. Once again, NVIDIA introduces groundbreaking new hardware technologies in the GeForce 6 Series of graphics processing units (GPUs) that push 3D real-time graphics one step closer to film quality. These newest GPUs provide the hardware brainpower developers need to create stunning, real-time 3D effects in their games and applications, and the hardware muscle to keep your system performing at top speeds.

Advanced Visual Effects
NVIDIA CineFX 3.0 is poised to unleash a new level of programming creativity. With full DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 support, the newest GeForce GPUs will soon power a new generation of games with unmatched realism, digital worlds with mind-blowing complexity, and lifelike characters that move through cinematic-quality environments. Previously, highly complex effects were not possible without sacrificing performance and precision, because of long shader programs that required many computational passes. Now, with the NVIDIA GeForce 6 Series and its CineFX 3.0 engine, groundbreaking effects can be created without compromising performance.
