Long summary description MSI NX8500GT-TD256E OC graphics card GeForce 8500 GT GDDR3:
This is an auto-generated long summary of MSI NX8500GT-TD256E OC graphics card GeForce 8500 GT GDDR3 based on the first three specs of the first five spec groups.

MSI NX8500GT-TD256E OC. Graphics processor: GeForce 8500 GT, Processor frequency: 600 MHz. Graphics adapter memory type: GDDR3, Memory bus: 128 bit, Memory clock speed: 1200 MHz. Maximum resolution: 2048 x 1536 pixels. DirectX version: 10.0, Dual Link DVI

Graphics processor *
Also known as a graphics processing unit (GPU), this is a specialized electronic circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display. GPUs are used in embedded systems, mobile phones, personal computers, workstations, and game consoles. Modern GPUs are very efficient at manipulating computer graphics.
GeForce 8500 GT
Maximum resolution *
The maximum number of pixels that can be displayed in the image. It is usually quoted as width × height,: for example, "1024 × 768" means the width is 1024 pixels and the height is 768 pixels.
2048 x 1536 pixels
Processor frequency *
The clock rate is the fundamental rate in cycles per second (measured in hertz) at which a computer performs its most basic operations such as adding two numbers. There are more factors, like internal memory size, that influence a computer's actual response time.
600 MHz
Graphics adapter RAMDAC
400 MHz
Graphics adapter memory type *
The type of memory used by the video card. Often a combination of dedicated memory (Video RAM or VRAM) and dynamic system memory is used. UMA stands for Unified Memory Architecture, and is a computer memory architecture that allows the graphics processing unit to share system memory. Other abreviations: RAM = Random Access Memory, SDRAM = synchronous dynamic RAM, DDR = double-data-rate.
Memory bus *
Hardware and software that connects the main memory to the memory controller in computer systems. Originally, general-purpose buses like VMEbus and the S-100 bus were used, but to reduce latency, modern memory buses are designed to connect directly to DRAM chips, and thus are designed by chip standards bodies such as JEDEC.
128 bit
Memory clock speed
The frequency at which the memory (e.g. RAM) runs.
1200 MHz
Data transfer rate
Rate at which data can be transferred. Usually expressed in units per second. May vary with network configurations.
12.8 Gbit/s
Ports & interfaces
TV out
DirectX version *
DirectX is a collection of APIs (application programming interfaces) for easily handling tasks related to game programming on the Microsoft Windows operating system.
Shader model version *
A shader is a program used in 3D computer graphics to determine the final surface properties of an object or image. This can include arbitrarily complex descriptions of light absorption and diffusion, texture mapping, reflection and refraction, shadowing, surface displacement and post-processing effects. It is also used to refer to video graphics hardware units that run these programs.
Dual Link DVI *
A dual-link DVI interface sends data over both of the DVI links to the monitor, and this is how higher resolutions are achieved. With dual-link DVI, a resolution of 2048 x 1536 is possible.
Fill rate
3.6 billion texels/sec
Other features
Mac compatibility
Product can be used with Apple Mac software and/or hardware.
