The GT 630 2048MB DDR3 Graphics Card from MSI is a graphics display card based on the GeForce GT 630 graphics processor. It boasts 2048MB of DDR3 memory and its HDMI functionality provides access to premium digital content. Furthermore, it enables gaming enthusiasts to seamlessly connect to their LCD monitor to bring the ultimate multimedia experience. The GT 630 Graphics Card comes with Afterburner, a completely free utility that enables you to boost performance and monitor all kinds of critical information in real-time.
HDCP support provides a robust and a transparent method for transmitting and receiving digital entertainment similar to DVI/HDMI compliant digital displays. It encrypts the data transmitted between the DVI/HDMI connector on the graphics adapter and the display. Dual-link DVI convertible output supports video/audio signal integration through DVI to HDMI interface, which drives the resolution of a digital display up to 1920 x 1200 or higher. The graphics card supports NVIDIA CUDA technology that provides a C-language environment, which enables programmers and developers to write software to solve complex computational problems in a fraction of time by tapping into the many-core parallel processing power of GPUs. Additionally, the graphics card also supports NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology.
Video Capture Predator
The card has Video Capture Predator function included within Afterburner 2.10, which supports real-time video capturing and multi-threading.
Native HDMI 1.4a Output
HDMI 1.4a supports 1080p HD movie playback and TrueHD or DTS-HD audio transmission.
Afterburner is a completely free utility that enables you to boost performance and monitor all kinds of critical information in real-time. It supports in-game video recording and wireless control by Android/iOS hand-held devices. It also supports built-in DX11 effect test.
MSI Solid Capacitor Graphics Card
The GT 630 Graphics Card uses high-quality solid capacitors. Solid capacitors have a 10-year ultra-long lifetime (under full load). They lower temperature and provide higher power efficiency. Moreover, the aluminum core eliminates the possibility of explosion. This feature ensures that the card has better quality components within, making it perfect for gamers and high-end users. It also provides strong support for users who want to engage in hard-core tuning.
HDMI + DVI Output
HDMI and DVI are the most comprehensively used interfaces for HD video display. MSI adopts two interfaces to provide a complete output solution for you to enjoy HD videos such as a Blu-ray movies.
The graphics card offers HDMI functionality to provide access to premium digital content. HDMI enables gaming enthusiasts to seamlessly connect to their LCD monitor to bring the ultimate multimedia experience.
Only one HDMI cable is required while streaming audio/video data to flat-panel display devices, such as plasma/LCD TVs or projectors.
Blu-ray and HD DVD Support
The card supports the specifications of Blu-ray and HD DVD. It features contemporary GPU and memory that deliver superior processing performance, so you can easily enjoy HD videos at a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080 p/i).
PCIe 2.0 Support
PCIe 2.0 doubles the bandwidth of previous generation PCIe up to an astonishing 16 Gbps. This maximizes the performance of graphics cards used in most demanding games and applications. PCIe 2.0 products are fully compatible with motherboards with other versions of PCIe.
HDCP provides a robust and transparent method for transmitting and receiving digital entertainment similar to DVI/HDMI-compliant digital displays. HDCP encrypts the data transmitted between the DVI/HDMI connector on the graphics adapter and the display.
NVIDIA CUDA Technology
NVIDIA CUDA technology provides a C-language environment that enables programmers and developers to write software to solve complex computational problems in a fraction of time by tapping into the many-core parallel processing power of GPUs. With millions of CUDA-capable GPUs already deployed, thousands of software programmers are using the free CUDA software tools to accelerate applications from video and audio encoding to oil and gas exploration, product design, medical imaging and scientific research.
HDMI Convertible Output
Dual-link DVI convertible output supports video/audio signal integration through DVI to HDMI interface, which drives the resolution of a digital display up to 1920 x 1200 or higher.
NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology
Blu-ray and HD DVD movies are bringing enhanced levels of movie-viewing experiences with HD image quality far surpassing standard definition DVDs. NVIDIA PureVideo HD2 technology provides unsurpassed Blu-ray and HD DVD movie picture quality.
