The new ZOTAC GeForce® GT 220 and 210-based graphics cards take 3D performance and home theater integration to a whole new level with new technologies for superior performance, visuals and audio. 3D performance is enhanced with support for DirectX® 10.1 and OpenGL 3.1 technologies for realistic visuals and unmatched performance.

ZOTAC GeForce® GT 220 graphics cards feature 48 lightning-fast processing cores while the more affordable ZOTAC GeForce 210 features 16 processing cores. Despite the high-performance of the new ZOTAC GeForce® GT 220 and 210 series graphics cards, the new graphics cards are energy efficient and consume little energy thanks to a new manufacturing process.

“The new ZOTAC GeForce® GT 220 and 210 series are our first graphics cards with graphics cards manufactured using the new 40nm manufacturing process. Thanks to the technological improvements, we’re able to deliver greater performance, value and energy efficiency for our entry-level customers,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International.

New HDMI 1.3a compatibility with xvYCC and Deep Color technologies ensures the ZOTAC GeForce® GT 220 and 210 series support connectivity with the latest displays and home theater receivers for richer and more detailed visuals and colors as well as superior digital 7.1-channel surround sound audio. NVIDIA® PureVideo™ HD technology takes charge of video decoding for smooth playback of high-definition Blu-ray movies on the ZOTAC GeForce® GT 220 and 210 series graphics cards.

“We introduced digital 7.1-channel LPCM audio output with our ZOTAC GeForce® 8 and 9 series graphics cards, which let users enjoy the loss-less Dolby Digital TrueHD and DTS-HD: Master Audio sound tracks in Blu-ray movies. The ZOTAC GeForce® GT 220 and 210 series allows users to enjoy Dolby Digital TrueHD and DTS-HD: Master Audio while still being able to play the latest games with higher quality visual settings,” Mr. Berger said.

The ZOTAC GeForce® GT 220 and 210 series feature NVIDIA® CUDA™ to accelerate everyday tasks such as video processing, converting and image editing. It’s time to play with the new entry-level ZOTAC GeForce® GT220 and 210 series graphics cards.
