NVIDIA TurboCache technology is a new, patent pending hardware and software technology that enables a GPU to render directly to system memory leveraging the high transfer rate of PCI-Express, instead of using local memory on the graphics card. NVIDIA TurboCache technology lowers on-board memory requirements, enabling system builders to deliver a more feature-rich GPU and achieve graphics performance previously unattainable at value prices. The NVIDIA GeForce 6200 will be the first GPU to feature TurboCache technology.

GeForce 6200 GPUs with TurboCache technology are shipping to customers now and graphics cards are anticipated to be available from leading add-in card manufacturers and in systems from leading PC OEMs in January 2005.
