This is the first time that NVIDIA’s GeForce2 MX™ is being offered on all standard retail configurations of Power Mac G4, including dual monitor support via TwinView. TwinView enables exciting display alternatives. For example, a user could configure a Mac to surf the web on their primary monitor while simultaneously watching a DVD movie on a television screen.
“Today, Apple launched the new Power Mac G4 complete with NVIDIA’s TwinView capabilities, shifting the way end-users interact with their computers and monitors,” said Jeff Fisher, vice president of worldwide sales at NVIDIA. “Our TwinView functionality is the perfect complement to Apple’s Power Mac desktops and its family of matching displays–bringing the best personal computing experience to students, educators, creative professionals and consumers alike.”
“The Power Mac G4, with its power, expandability and leading-edge digital solutions, is the system of choice for serious graphics professionals,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “With NVIDIA’s TwinView functionality for dual-monitor support, Apple’s new Power Mac G4 gives the pro something they value highly-–more screen real estate to be creative.”
In addition to blazingly fast 2D and 3D graphics, GeForce2 MX provides unparalleled display flexibility with its new TwinView display architecture. Through TwinView, GeForce2 MX supports a dizzying array of multi-display configurations. Various combinations of multiple monitors, flat panels, and TVs can be connected to a single GeForce2 MX GPU. TwinView even supports two independent digital flat panels, an industry first, providing relief for severely constrained desktop environments.
