The results were extraordinary. Not only were we able to bump up the performance of some of China’s newest games – titles such as “Age of Wushu,” and “Passion Leads Army,” — but we were able to cut the energy consumed by each PC.

The cards offer five times better performance than the 2008 vintage Nvidia 9500 GT graphics card used in many cafes.

That performance can be delivered using less power. Nvidia’s new Kepler architecture, introduced earlier this year, takes advantage of advances in semiconductor manufacturing – and a more efficient design – to wring more work from each watt. Learn more.
