Zotac GeForce 9800GT EcoZOTAC Unleashes More Power Efficient GeForce® 9800GT Eco

New ZOTAC GeForce® 9800GT Eco delivers GeForce® 9800GT performance with 40-percent greater power efficiency

ZOTAC International, an award-winning manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today expands its GeForce 9800GT product lineup with the new more power-efficient ZOTAC GeForce 9800GT Eco. The new ZOTAC GeForce 9800GT Eco delivers phenomenal performance and breathtaking visuals with 40-percent greater power efficiency for a high-performance graphics experience that is easy on the power bill.

“Our mainstream ZOTAC GeForce 9800GT has won many awards for its performance. With the new ZOTAC GeForce 9800GT Eco, you can have the competitive performance of the GeForce 9800GT series but with 40-percent greater power efficiency,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International.

Zotac GeForce 9800GT EcoThe ZOTAC GeForce 9800GT Eco packs a performance punch with its 112 stream processors and high-speed GDDR3 memory technology. A wide 256-bit memory interface joins the screaming-fast stream processors with the high-speed GDDR3 memory for smooth frame rates and vivid visuals. 

NVIDIA CUDA, PhysX and PureVideo HD technologies take the ZOTAC GeForce 9800GT Eco beyond gaming graphics to enhance everyday tasks and applications such as video and image editing, video processing, gaming and video playback.

“We’ve come to a crossroads with graphics technology where we can use our graphics cards to accelerate non-3D applications. With this power, PCs are able to use the graphics cards to speed up image and video editing and transcoding to achieve better results than a quad-core CPU, calculate realistic physics effects, and playback high-definition video with greater image quality than most standalone players,” Mr. Berger added.

ZOTAC is confident in the long-reliability of the GeForce 9800GT Eco and backs it with an extended warranty for trouble-free ownership.

It’s time to play with the more power-efficient ZOTAC GeForce 9800GT Eco.

The thing I don't get is: How exactly do they make it 'Eco'? It's not like a graphics card can have an 'Energy Efficient' Version like a lightbulb. If it does live up to it's claims I think it's a good HTPC or everyday use solution. Good work ZOTAC!
