SANTA CLARA, CA—DECEMBER 16, 2003—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, announced today that Falcon Northwest has standardized on NVIDIA® GeForce™ FX graphics processing units (GPUs) in the stylish and portable Falcon Northwest FragBox line of gaming PCs. The FragBox ships with the NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 Ultra GPU, while the NVIDIA GeForce FX 5950 is the GPU of choice in the FragBox Pro.

"After exhaustive testing and troubleshooting, it is clear that NVIDIA is the way to go with our FragBox line." said Kelt Reeves, President of Falcon Northwest. "NVIDIA provides the FragBox with graphics solutions that are not only faster than the competition, but run cooler and with much better reliability in the harsh environment of a small form-factor PC."

"Falcon Northwest caters to a demanding clientele with their high-performance, custom-built PCs," said Jeff Fisher, executive vice president of worldwide sales for NVIDIA. "The blazing speed, cinematic image quality, and unmatched stability of our GeForce FX line is exactly what Falcon Northwest’s customers require."

The Falcon Northwest FragBox is designed to pack an amazing amount of computing power into a fast, lightweight, and affordable package. The small 12-inch by 8-inch case is light enough to carry to a LAN party and stylish enough to be the show piece of a home entertainment system.
