|Shader Model 4.1
Shader Model 4.1 adds support for indexed temporaries which can be quite useful for certain tasks.Regular direct temporary access is preferable is most cases. One reason is that indexed temporaries are hard to optimize. The shader optimizer may not be able to identify optimizations across indexed accesses that could otherwise have been detected. Furthermore, indexed temporaries tend to increase register pressure a lot. An ordinary shader that contains for instance a few dozen variables will seldom consume a few dozen temporaries in the end but is likely to be optimized down to a handful depending on what the shader does. This is because the shader optimizer can easily track all variables and reuse registers. This is typically not possible for indexed temporaries, thus the register pressure of the shader may increase dramatically. This could be detrimental to performance as it reduces the hardware’s ability to hide latencies.
PCI Express® 2.0 –Now you are ready for the most demanding graphics applications thanks to PCI Express® 2.0 support, which allows up to twice the throughput of current PCI Express® cards. Doubles the bus standard's bandwidth from 2.5 Gbit/s (PCIe 1.1) to 5 Gbit/sec.
High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is a form of copy protection technology designed to prevent transmission of non-encrypted high-definition content as it travels across DVI or HDMI digital connections.

As a citizen of the global village, GIGABYTE exert ourselves to be a pioneer in environment care. Give the whole of Earth a promis that our products do not contain any of the restricted substances in concentrations and applications banned by the RoHS Directive, and are capable of being worked on at the higher temperatures required for lead free solder. One Earth and GIGABYTE Cares!
High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a new interface standard for consumer electronics devices that combines HDCP-protected digital video and audio into a single, consumer-friendly connector.
Multiply and Conquer with Multi-GPU Performance: CrossFire’s “supertiling” GPU sharing speeds rendering by evenly dividing the graphics processing, intelligently alternating the rendering workload to each Radeon GPU for efficient load balancing, and optimized performance.CrossFire boosts image quality along with rendering speed, eliminating the need to crank down screen resolutions to get the high image quality you want.CrossFire supports a wide range of ATI-based graphics cards and motherboards, and offers compatibility with a broad array of third party components for a flexible and robust solution.
Utilizing 3 cool points instead of the traditional single node to connect the heat pipes to the fins, GIGABYTE's Multi-Core™ Technology provides additional thermal conductivity for better performance especially during heavy loading. Featuring a series of ultra-thin layered fins with nodes of copper, these added cooling points on the heat pipes help to increase the heat conduction ratio, thereby enhancing overall thermal performance. Using 2 vents to take advantage of the natural convection of airflow inside the chassis, GIGABYTE's Multi-Core™ Technology is able to efficiently disperse the heat from the GPU.
GIGABYTE's Gamer HUD™ utility features the GamerHUD Engine, the world's first software solution to adjust GPU voltage through a software control panel. With multi-level GPU and memory voltage control settings, users are able to squeeze the highest amount of performance from their cards. GIGABYTE's Gamer HUD™ utility also supports adjusting of GPU, shader (NVIDIA only) and memory clock settings, for maximum overclocking performance. Furthermore, an all new PWM Frequency feature is bundled, supporting 2 modes of optimized power configurations. Turbo mode provides an increase in power, allowing for better overclocking capabilities.
