NVIDIA GeForce 8700M GT

NVIDIA GeForce 8700M GT

NVIDIA GeForce 8700M GT is a video card and capable of DirectX 10. Technically, it has 32 Stream Processors like the 8600M GT, but the core-, shader- and memory clock is higher. Therefore the performance is somewhat above the 8600M GT (according advertisements of NVidia clearly better) and should be sufficient for all current games.

The particularity of this video card are the "Unified Shaders". Pixel- and vertex-shaders do not exist any more but 32 of the so called Stream processors do the graphic work (which up to now pixel- and vertex shaders did).

3DMark benchmarks show a promising performance on the level of a 7900 GTX. Because of the small 128 Bit memory bus, the performance looks worse in games (especially in high resolutions). Modern DirectX 10 games like Crysis can not be played in the highest resolutions.

The PureVideo video processor enables the chip to help decode HD videos in H.264, VC-1, MPEG-2, and WMV9.

Some drivers called the 8700M GT NB8E-SE (880M GS).
