The new king of the GPU scene is here in the Nvidia Geforce GTX 280. Some note worthy features included in this card.
It is PhysX Ready
Remember the Physics hardware a couple of years back? It is now built into Nvidia’s newest video cards. You might need to upgrade the physics firmware from time to time, but that’s just semantics.
3-Way Nvidia SLI technology
If you have the money, and you absolutely need the fastest gaming hardware available, then install three GTX 280s onto your motherboard. Just make sure you have a strong enough power supply.
Nvidia CUDA technology
What this does is turn the Video card’s GPU into something of a CPU to perform CPU tasks such as video encoding.
