NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series notebook GPUs

NVIDIA announced a new family of NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series of graphics processors targeted at the newly evolved notebook PC market. These new GPUs (graphics processing units) help power a whole, new generation of notebook PCs that deliver the ultimate visual experience for Windows Vista, DirectX 10 games, HD movies, and popular applications like Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Live Maps—changing the way users see and interact with their computers through enhanced visual quality, responsiveness and ease-of-use.

The new GeForce 8M Series notebook GPUs—the world’s first to support DirectX 10 and fully accelerate decoding of H.264 full HD movies—are available now from the top PC makers such as HP, Toshiba, Acer, Samsung, and ASUS. Initially available in the GeForce 8600M and GeForce 8400M versions, the new GPUs make ultra-realistic DirectX10 3D games and vivid HD video playback on notebook PCs a reality .
