3D Accelerators

MetaVR's VRSG technology supports a wide range of 3D graphics accelerators that can be upgraded as technology evolves. VRSG uses the Microsoft DirectX Application Programmers Interface (API), which is a very thin and efficient layer above the rendering hardware. The graphics API of choice in the game community is Microsoft DirectX, which in turn receives the largest support by hardware vendors of any competing graphics standards. The VRSG application is written with the DirectX API to take advantage of the largest possible base of potential 3D graphics accelerators. The DirectX API issues a major release each year with some vendors providing direct hardware support for some of the DirectX components (such as DirectSound and DirectSound3D). MetaVR uses only non-proprietary 3D graphics accelerators that are commercially available from your local computer retailer. MetaVR constantly evaluates the latest hardware to determine the best possible graphics accelerators for personal computers. The newest generation graphics cards have integrated 2D and 3D capability and support visual simulation as well as desktop business graphics.

GeForce GTX780

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780-based video card is most advanced gaming technologies with GeForce Experience™ for one-click driver and setting optimization, plus NVIDIA PhysX® and TXAA™ for smooth, sharp graphics. The GK110-powered GeForce GTX 780 features the same styling as the GeForce GTX TITAN, has 50% more memory and 50% more CUDA cores than the GeForce GTX 680, and is on average 35% faster than its predecessor. NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 technology allows users to push PC performance to the maximum with precise controls. GPU Boost 2.0 intelligently monitors work with even more advanced controls like GPU temperature target, overclocking, and overvoltage to ensure the GPU works at the ultimate performance. Temporal anti-aliasing (TXAA) creates a smoother, clearer image than any other anti-aliasing solution by combining high-quality MSAA multisample anti-aliasing, post processes, and NVIDIA-designed temporal filters. The GeForce Experience application automatically notifies you of new driver releases from NVIDIA.

The key features of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 card include:

  • 863 MHz base graphics clock rate (900 MHz boost clock rate).
