With NVIDIA CUDA technology, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 285 series can accelerate video transcoding and image processing tasks, making it the perfect solution for work and play.NVIDIA PhysX technology enables real physics effects in games for realistic environmental interaction with the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 285 series. With PhysX technology, in-game effects are no longer follow a predefined path, instead the effects are calculated in real-time in relation to character interaction.

“NVIDIA CUDA and PhysX technologies have gained substantial support from software developers. Our ZOTAC GeForce GTX 285 series are ready for CUDA and PhysX games and applications such as Elemental Design’s Badaboom video transcoder, Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Electronic Art’s upcoming Mirror’s Edge game,” Mr. Berger added.

The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 285 series supports NVIDIA SLI technology for multi-GPU processing – enabling multiple graphics cards to operate simultaneously for substantial performance gains. Up to three ZOTAC GeForce GTX 285 series graphics cards can be installed in a single system for up to 2.8x the performance of a single card.
