With a single click, you’ll be able to update the driver directly, without leaving your desktop.
NVIDIA Maxwell Architecture
This is NVIDIA’s most advanced architecture ever, delivering incredible performance and unmatched power efficiency. Plus, it offers cutting-edge features like advanced sampling and Dynamic Super Resolution technology that delivers 4K-quality gaming—even on 1080p displays.
NVIDIA TXAA Technology
Film studios invest enormous resources in developing advanced technologies and post-production effects to deliver visually spectacular experiences for movie-goers. For games to achieve this level of fidelity, developers need new anti–aliasing technologies that deliver a viewing experience that eliminates the distraction of unrealistic, jagged lines (”jaggies”) and aliased shimmering–without compromising performance.
NVIDIA is making this happen today, bringing cinema-quality graphics to life in blockbuster gaming titles with an innovative new temporal antialiasing technology called TXAA. Available exclusively on GeForce GTX Kepler-powered GPUs, TXAA is designed to be directly integrated into game engines. Plus, it combines the raw power of MSAA (multi–sample anti–aliasing) with a temporal filter and sophisticated resolve filters similar to those used in CG films. The end result is a smoother, more lifelike image than any other comparable technique.
NVIDIA FXAA Technology
FXAA is a NVIDIA-developed post-processing technique that selectively blurs a game’s graphics to tackle unsightly jagged edges and high-contrast pixel deviation. Gaining popularity amongst developers due to its low performance impact and its ability to anti-alias transparent textures and details, FXAA is highly recommended for low-end and mid-range systems.
NVIDIA G-SYNC Technology
NVIDIA G-SYNC is a groundbreaking new innovation that casts aside decades-old thinking to create the smoothest, most responsive computer displays ever seen. A monitor module you can install yourself, or buy pre-installed in gamer-focused monitors, NVIDIA G-SYNC waves goodbye to the days of screen tearing, input lag, and eyestrain-inducing stuttering caused by decades-old tech lazily carried over from analog TVs to modern-day monitors.
NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 Technology
Up until now, GPUs have operated at a fixed clock speed when playing 3D games, even if they have the potential to run faster. GPU Boost 2.0 intelligently monitors graphics work load and increases the clock speed whenever possible. The result is that the GPU always performs at its peak and you get the highest framerate possible. With NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 Enjoy new levels of customization with advanced controls like GPU temperature target, overclocking, and overvoltage.
NVIDIA Adaptive V-Sync Technology
Nothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-sync is enabled to eliminate tearing, at low frame rates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.
NVIDIA CUDA Technology
NVIDIA CUDA technology is the world’s only C language environment that enables programmers and developers to write software to solve complex computational problems in a fraction of the time by tapping into the many-core parallel processing power of GPUs. With millions of CUDA-capable GPUs already deployed, thousands of software programmers are already using the free CUDA software tools to accelerate applications—from video and audio encoding to oil and gas exploration, product design, medical imaging, and scientific research.
NVIDIA Surround with up to 4 Monitors
Nothing is as breathtaking as playing your favorite games across three monitors. At 5760 x 1080, the expanded field of view fully engages human peripheral vision and provides for the most immersive experience in racing and flight simulators. Add in a fourth display to keep tabs on chat, email or web while you are gaming.
NVIDIA SLI Technology
Used by the most demanding gamers worldwide, SLI lets you link up to two GeForce GTX 950's together for astounding performance. And with NVIDIA’s track record for fast and frequent software updates, you’ll not only get the best performance in existing games, but future games too.
