“We are honored our technology family was recognized by Computer Shopper as powering the best products available,” said Dan Vivoli, vice president of marketing for NVIDIA. “Helping our partners win eight different ‘Product of the Year’ awards illustrates the breadth of our product line and pervasiveness of NVIDIA technology in the marketplace.”
