Nvidia PureVideo HD
NVIDIA PureVideo HD
PureVideo HD technology is the combination of drivers and a dedicated video-processing core on NVIDIA GeForce GPUs that deliver superb video quality with minimal CPU usage and low power consumption.
Whether you're watching a Blu-ray or HD DVD disc, an HD video file downloaded from the Internet, or your own HD home movie, PureVideo HD brings video to life in vivid detail with smooth playback.
Revolutionary New Video Processing Architecture
NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series and above incorporate a revolutionary new video processing architecture, making them them capable of offloading Blu-ray video decoding (H.264, VC-1, MPEG-2) from the CPU. This added processing power gives PureVideo HD technology the ability to support more features as they are added to Blu-ray movies, including “picture-in-picture”, interactive games and menus, and higher bit-rate / higher video quality.
Low CPU Utilization and Power Consumption
PureVideo HD technology on the GPU takes on the processing-intensive video decoding task, freeing the CPU and 3D engine to run other applications while playing a high-definition movie. Lower CPU utilization can result in reduced power consumption, heat and noise, and longer battery life.
Superb Picture Quality
NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology delivers outstanding picture clarity, ultra-smooth video, vivid color, and precise image scaling for video and HD DVD and Blu-ray movies. PureVideo HD accelerates and enhances high-definition movies delivering life-like images that have up to six times the detail of standard DVD movies at resolutions up to 1080p - the highest HD resolution available.
