NEW YORK, NY—APRIL 21, 2005—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), a worldwide leader in graphics and digital media processors, is pleased to congratulate AMD (NYSE: AMD) on the two-year anniversary of the AMD Opteron™ processor.
“As the industry moves to pervasive, mainstream x86-based 64-bit computing, NVIDIA fully supports AMD's evolutionary approach and dual-core leadership with our NVIDIA nForce™4 product line,” said Drew Henry, general manager of MCP business at NVIDIA. “The combination of NVIDIA nForce and AMD Opteron processors provides stunning performance for our customers, especially those in the CAD and DCC industries who require a lightning-fast graphics response. We look forward to continuing our close collaboration with AMD as both 64-bit and dual-core technologies become essential for our customers.”
NVIDIA recently announced that it shipped more than one million NVIDIA nForce4 media and communication processors (MCPs) for AMD64-based computing platforms between December 2004 and February 2005. The demand is fueled in part by the popularity of NVIDIA SLI™ technology, a revolutionary approach to graphics scalability and increased performance.
