When video quality is the issue, graphics acceleration is the solution!

  • 64-Bit Graphics Engine for Incredible Video Performance
  • Play Multimedia Video Clips Full-Screen with Full-Motion
  • Up to 16.7 Million Colors for Photo-Realistic Images
  • Ultra-High Resolutions and Refresh Rates Deliver Ultimate Image Quality
  • Plug-and-Play with Auto-Configuring Features for Easy Installation

And no previous graphics adapter offers the full-screen and full-motion playback performance of the STB POWERGRAPH 64 VIDEO. With 2MB of EDO DRAM, the POWERGRAPH 64 VIDEO graphics accelerator supports standard 64-bit graphics resolutions at the highest possible refresh rates - up to 160Hz! While traditional video adapters may play back video as slow as 7 frames per second, the POWERGRAPH 64 VIDEO is capable of full-screen, full-motion video at 30 frames per second. At that speed, the human eye sees a sharp, smoothly-flowing video image comparable to a television display. STB has the technology to make TV-quality video a dazzling on-screen reality!
