At the very beginning of 2003, NVIDIA® finally unveiled the next generation GPU and announced the NVIDIA® GeForce™ FX 5800 graphics card. NVIDIA® GeForce™ FX 5800 has provided a more powerful theater-level graphic engine to show its lifelike animation effect and computing ability and satisfied the desired hardware requirements for modern games.

NVIDIA® GeForce™ FX 5800 is the first graphics chip in the industry to adopt the 0.13µ manufacturing process, and also the first GPU to use wideband DDR2 memory. The operation timing of the chip reaches 500MHz, breaking the highest record in the industry. As for computing ability, NVIDIA® GeForce™ FX 5800 Ultra Graphics Chip Floating Point Computing can process 200 billion instructions per second, 375 million programmable vertexes per second, 4 billion pixels per second, or 16 billion anti-aliasing capability. Its graphics computing ability reaches another new summit. NVIDIA®'s world No.1 global partner, MSI™, at the same time introduces the superior-quality graphics cards FX5800 Ultra-TD8X and FX5800-TD8X out of the blue to fulfill Cg cravers.

This new generation NVIDIA® GeForce™ FX 5800 Ultra chipset has the core for power and performance, the two major elements that game players want the most. The CineFX™ engine of the GeForce™ FX is the game effect provided in the same level of the most popular animation integrating 128-bit theatre-level high-quality audio/video quality color processing technology, the 3D world and characters has lifelike effects that have never been accomplished before. The evolution of performance allows the application program and the game to be executed with a higher resolution with an unprecedented speed. The NVIDIA® GeForce™ FX 5800 Ultra will show a close-to-perfect screen, and enrich your experience in graphics.

The specifications and functional features of the NVIDIA® GeForce™ FX5800 Ultra include the following:

  • The 0.13µ manufacturing process gives higher timing and better performance.
  • The world's first DDR2 memory interface has the world's fastest memory, capable of providing the smoothest video rendering speed even while running in the most advanced application program.
  • Supports AGP 8X: Provides twice as much bandwidth as the AGP 4X and increases the speed from 1.0GB per second to 2.1GB per second. The AGP 8X makes more complicated models and more delicate materials possible, and creates a lifelike environment. The non-interrupt data stream provides a smoother video streaming function and a faster and better-knit game experience.
