    Features and Benefits

    New-Generation GLINT R4 Rasterizer
    Delivers unified 2D, 3D and video processing with professional quality and enhanced small primitive performance for smooth interactivity with large models.

    GLINT Gamma G2 Second-Generation Geometry Processor
    Offloads 100% of the OpenGL transformation and lighting calculations from the CPU for maximum application performance and to boost the interactivity of large models

    64MB On-Board Memory with Virtual Texturing
    Oxygen GVX1 Pro acts as a full 256MB graphics card while caching large amount of textures on-board for smooth interaction with complex scenes, even with high-resolution screens and full-screen anti-aliasing.

    Analog and DVI-I Display Connectors
    Flexibility to drive analog or high-quality digital displays, preserving graphics board investment as displays are upgraded

    PowerThreads™ OpenGL
    Dynamically balances the transform and lighting load between the on-board geometry accelerator and the host CPU for maximum system performance
