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 GTX 1080

The NVIDIA® GeForce GTX 1080-based video card is based on Nvidia's most advanced architecture ever, to deliver up to 3x the performance of previous-generation graphics cards, plus innovative new gaming technologies to deliver the fastest, smoothest, most power-efficient gaming experiences. GeForce GTX 1080 is meticulously crafted to offer superior heat dissipation using vapor chamber cooling technology and premium materials.

Powered by next-generation NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture, this graphics card delivers unmatched power efficiency, faster framerates, new rendering techniques and superior image quality. NVIDIA Pascal is built to meet the demands of next generation displays, including VR, ultra-high-resolution, and multiple monitors. It features NVIDIA GameWorks™ technologies for extremely smooth 3D visualization and cinematic experiences.

The key features of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 card include:

  • Base graphics clock-rate: 1607 MHz (1733 MHz boost clock rate).
  • Memory specs: 256-bit, 8 GB GDDR5X frame buffer, 10 GBPS data rate, 320 GB/sec maximum memory bandwidth.
