Conclusion

 

This is the bit that makes the difference between something like the GeForce 2 card and the GeForce 4 card.

 

NVIDIA nfiniteFX TMII Engine

The NVIDIA nfiniteFX II Engine incorporates dual programmable Vertex Shaders, faster Pixel Shaders and 3D textures. The nfiniteFX II Engine gives developers the freedom to program a virtually infinite number of custom special effects to create true-to-life characters and environments. An example of the nfiniteFX II Engine in use would be the fur in the Wolfman Demo that you can download from nVidia.

 

Accuview TM Antialiasing

The NVIDIA Accuview Antialiasing (AA) subsystem tackles difficult antialiasing problems by providing a unique and flexible technology architecture that delivers high-quality graphics at unbeatable levels of performance. For the first time, end users can choose high-resolution antialiasing as their default display mode, without suffering any performance degradation in their favorite games and applications. An example of this is when you are playing games and you see what are called jaggy lines where is looks like a set of steps instead of a straight line.

 

 

 

 

 

Lightspeed Memory TM Architecture

LMA II boosts effective memory bandwidth by up to 300%. Radical new technologies including Z-occlusion culling, fast Z-clear, and auto pre-charge effectively multiply the memory bandwidth to ensure fluid frame rates for the latest 3D and 2D games and applications. In plain English LMA II gives you better performance and quality.

That is some of the specifications of the card, but for the full spec here is the list:

  • Integrated nVidia GeForce4 Ti series the most powerful GPU.
