PNY Technologies GTS 450 overview

  • 1Description

The nVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 1024MB PCIe Display Card from PNY is a powerful 3D display card for use with Windows computer systems. The card installs in an available PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot. It requires an empty adjacent slot to accommodate its double-width form factor.

The card supports a number of advanced graphics technologies. It can handle games and applications that are written using the DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.0 libraries with equal ease. It can be used with an optional nVIDIA 3D Vision kit to add true 3D support to your computing experience. If your system can support two of these cards you can take advantage of SLI technology, which effectively doubles 3D graphics performance by spreading the rendering workload across two GPUs.

The card's GPU also offers support for nVIDIA CUDA and PhysX technologies. CUDA allows compatible applications to leverage the card's powerful processor to aid in computations, which translates into a significant speed boost. The PhysX engine is used by games to simulate real-world physics. As this is handled by the GPU, it allows the computer's CPU to work on other aspects of gameplay -- which translates into smoother gameplay at higher resolution!

Microsoft DirectX 11 Support
DirectX 11 GPU with Shader Model 5.0 support is designed for ultra-high performance, especially in the API's key graphics feature -- GPU-accelerated tessellation.
nVIDIA PhysX Technology
Full support for nVIDIA PhysX technology enables a totally new class of physical gaming interaction for a more dynamic and realistic experience.
nVIDIA 3D Vision Ready
Support for nVIDIA 3D Vision brings a fully immersive stereoscopic 3D experience to your PC. The optional 3D Vision kit is a combination of high-tech wireless glasses and advanced software that work together to transform hundreds of PC games into full stereoscopic 3D. In addition, you can watch 3D movies and view 3D digital photographs in eye popping, crystal-clear quality.
nVIDIA 3D Vision Surround Ready
Expand your games across three displays in full stereoscopic 3D for the ultimate "inside the game" experience with the power of nVIDIA 3D Vision and SLI technologies. nVIDIA Surround also supports triple screen gaming with non-stereo displays.
nVIDIA CUDA Technology
CUDA technology unlocks the power of the GPU's processor cores to accelerate the most demanding tasks such as video transcoding, physics simulation, ray tracing, and more, delivering incredible performance improvements over traditional CPUs.
2-Way nVIDIA SLI Technology
Industry leading 2-way nVIDIA SLI technology offers amazing performance scaling by implementing 2-way AFR (Alternate Frame Rendering) for the world's premier gaming solution. It runs well under Windows 7 thanks to solid, state-of-the-art drivers.
Hardware Video Decode Acceleration
High-definition video decoding acceleration and post-processing combine to deliver unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for movies and videos.
TrueHD and DTS-HD Audio Bitstreaming Support
Full support for TrueHD and DTS-HD advanced lossless multi-channel HD audio codecs bring the rich sound of the master recording to your living room.
Dual-Link DVI Support
The card is able to drive some of the industry's largest and highest resolution flat-panel displays. It supports up to 2560 x 1600 pixels via Dual-Link DVI, complete with support for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP).
Microsoft Windows 7 Support
Windows 7 is the next generation operating system that will mark a dramatic improvement in the way the OS takes advantage of the graphics processing unit (GPU), providing a more compelling user experience. By taking advantage of the GPU for both graphics and computing, Windows 7 will not only make today's PCs more visual and more interactive, but also ensure that they have the speed and responsiveness that customers want.
PCI Express 2.0 Support
Offers full support for the enhanced performance afforded by the PCI Express 2.0 bus.

    PNY Technologies GTS 450 reviews

    nVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 1024MB PCIe Display Card is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for playing games with. I primarily use the 450 GTS PNY for games like starcraft2 on the new extreme setting which the frames go from 30-75 and just cause2 running good frame rate gets a bit choppy though when it starts up a battle or something but i have it on max graphics. frame rate for Crysis 2 demo ran perfect at maxed resolution. other than getting low frame rate on maxed out Just Cause2 occasionally, It runs like a champ and expect it too for probably be running games for a couple of years to come. On my old Graphics card x1300 radeon couldn't do starcraft2 anything past but low graphics and this card does it all on high with ease definite upgrade. Goes well with my computer x3 740 Black edition, 4gb Kingston, gigabyte ga-m68mt-d3, 23inch samsung syncmaster
