Transform Your Media

Dive deeper into your media with enhanced graphics and hi-definition (HD) capabilities while condensing it all using a general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPGPU)-enabled graphics solution and optional CyberLink MediaShow Espresso.

Stunning Graphics
Watch your screen transform into life-like reality with standard ATI 4350 graphics or optional ATI HD 5770 1 GB GDDR5. Choose from NVIDIA® GeForce® GT220 or NVIDIA GeForce GTS240 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX260 with 3D* capabilities. Enjoy HD imagery and world-class performance with lightning-fast video and image processing. And for a more intense gaming experience, accelerated PhysX™ gaming effects provide a dynamic, larger-than-life impact.

CyberLink MediaShow Espresso
Convert your movies and other large HD content to a smaller size with optional CyberLink MediaShow Espresso paired with a GPGPU-enabled graphics solution. Scale down content to fit devices such as MP3 players, mobile phones or whatever digital device you own, so that you can take your favorite media wherever you go. Optional CyberLink MediaShow Espresso offloads the most intensive processing tasks from the processor to the graphics processor for quicker transcoding of your media content — taking care of all the heavy lifting.

THX TruStudio PC sound
THX TruStudio PC sound enhances music and movies, making them sound livelier — voices and dialogs are clearer, and changes in audio volumes are smoother — and providing a better listening experience and stunning sound.
