The nVIDIA NVS 300 x16 for DVI and VGA Display Card from PNY is a professional 2D display card, intended for use in business environments. It installs in an available PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot and can drive up to two Single-Link DVI or VGA displays. The card features a low-profile design, which allows it to be installed into slimline and standard chassis alike.
The NVS supports CUDA hardware acceleration, which allows compatible software applications to leverage the GPU for computations. It is cooled via a passive heatsink, making it a great choice for use in environments where noise pollution is a concern. The card is compatible with Windows and Linux computer systems.
Fast 512MB DDR3 Graphics Memory
DDR3 memory delivers high throughput to simultaneously play stunning HD video on each connected display.
Intelligent Power Management
nVIDIA Power Management technology reduces overall system energy costs. It intelligently adapts the total power utilization of the graphics subsystem based on the applications being run by the end user. This power optimized design helps reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and increase reliability.
CUDA's parallel computing architecture enables dramatic increases in computing performance by harnessing the power of the GPU (graphics processing unit). The NVS 300 contains 16 CUDA parallel computing cores compatible with all CUDA accelerated applications.
Ultimate Image Quality
nVIDIA NVS graphics products deliver the industry's best image quality, sharpness and pixel tracking for both analog & digital LCDs, DLPs, and plasma displays.
Low-Profile & Flexible Form Factor
The NVS simplifies IT administration and deployment throughout an enterprise. The NVS 300 has the ability to fit into any existing installations without being disruptive, regardless of desktop system or the display type. It can be installed into standard towers, desktop workstations, and small form factor computers, and can drive LCD, DLP, or plasma displays.
Built with a passive heatsink for higher reliability and a quieter desktop environment.
Versatile Display Connectivity Options
Provides a means to connect into the most exhaustive range of display technologies in a low profile graphics card via a low cost DMS-59 cable adapter.
High Resolution Display Support
The card can drive ultra high resolution panels using integrated display technologies, producing phenomenal photorealistic image quality from a range of display connectors. It supports two simultaneous displays, including single-link DVI, DisplayPort, VGA, or HDMI.
Dual HDMI Support
Enables transport of video and audio to HDTVs and other HDMI capable devices via 3rd party HDMI adapter.
nVIDIA High Definition Video Technology
nVIDIA high definition video technology is the combination of high-definition video processors and software that delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for SD and HD video content. Features include, high-quality scaling, spatial temporal de-interlacing, inverse telecine and high quality HD video playback -- with low CPU utilization and power consumption.
nView Advanced Desktop Software
The nView Advanced Desktop Software delivers maximum flexibility for single-large display or multi-display options, providing unprecedented end-user control of the desktop experience for increased productivity.
Multi-Display Experience with nVIDIA Mosaic Technology
Mosaic Technology -- available exclusively in Windows 7 -- enables seamless taskbar spanning as well as transparent scaling of any application across up to 8 displays. It works over multiple displays or one ultra-high resolution display using a single or multiple NVS graphics cards.
Unified Driver Architecture (UDA)
The NVS is part of the nVIDIA's Forceware unified software environment (USE). The nVIDIA UDA guarantees forward and backward compatibility with software drivers. It simplifies upgrading to a new nVIDIA product because the latest driver supports all current nVIDIA products.
Microsoft Windows 7 Support
The Windows 7 operating system marks a dramatic improvement in the way the OS takes advantage of the graphics processing unit (GPU) to provide a more compelling user experience. By taking advantage of the GPU for both graphics and computing, Windows 7 not only makes today's PCs more visual and more interactive but also ensures that they have the speed and responsiveness customers want.
Compatible with Industry Standard Architectures
The NVS is compatible with x86 32-bit and 64-bit microprocessor architectures by Intel and AMD. It supports Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems.
ENERGY STAR Enabling Design
The card enables ENERGY STAR compliance thanks to low maximum and low idle power levels.
PCI Express 2.0 Compliant
The PCI Express 2.0 bus supports a data transfer rate up to 5GB/sec per lane, for an aggregate bandwidth of 16GB/sec bi-directional -- 8GB/sec in each direction.
