FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM (IDF) – SAN JOSE — AUGUST 27, 2000 — NVIDIA® Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) today displayed the next step in the adoption of digital displays.

NVIDIA and Eizo® have teamed up to deliver the industry’s first dual digital visual interface (DVI) for consumers, enabling two digital flat panels to run at a resolution of 1280x1024, powered by a single NVIDIA graphics processing unit (GPU) featuring NVIDIA’s TwinView technology.  This display of digital technology brilliance can be seen in the DDWG booth, #1021 at IDF located at the San Jose Convention Center.

“Digital flat panel displays will be more and more pervasive in the coming years,” said Dan Vivoli, vice president of marketing at NVIDIA.  “NVIDIA offers the best experience for digital flat panel users by providing the cleanest, brightest, display output and the unique ability to support two digital panels from a single GPU.”

NVIDIA’s technology demonstration, featuring the GeForce2 MX GPU powering dual digital displays, showcases the importance of delivering a single chip solution.  Consumers will now be able to have an affordable digital experience in comparison to today’s more costly solutions.  According to DisplaySearch, the leader in flat panel display market research and consulting, dual digital monitor sales are predicted to be 6 million units in 2001 and increase to 10 million units by the end of 2002.  Thus the ability to save desktop space while enlarging the display area will be a key competitive differentiator. 

“As a worldwide leader in digital flat panel technology, Eizo looks to NVIDIA to help optimize display image quality,” said David Waletzki, Vice President of North America Sales at Eizo.  “Recognized as the world leader in graphics, NVIDIA consistently delivers the type of leading- edge solutions which are the perfect compliment to our line of displays.”
