FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ELECTRONIC ENTERTAINMENT EXPO—LOS ANGELES, CA—May 11, 2006—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) today announced that Toshiba's Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. is showcasing the first notebook PC with an HD DVD-ROM drive available in the U.S. at the NVIDIA booth at E3. The new notebook, the Toshiba Qosmio™ G35-AV650, features the NVIDIA GeForce® Go 7600 graphics processing unit (GPU) which enables the playback of highly-anticipated, high definition movies with superb picture clarity.

"HD will bring a new video experience to laptop users," said Jeff Fisher, Senior Vice President of the GPU Business at NVIDIA. "The powerful NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 GPU with PureVideo technology accelerates video playback with minimal CPU utilization and low power consumption, delivering a high quality video experience for PC users on the go."

Part of the award-winning GeForce Go 7 Series of notebook GPUs, the new GeForce Go 7600 GPU delivers advanced technologies including:

  • H.264 and MPEG2 hardware accelerated support through NVIDIA PureVideo™ technology—the combination of HD video processors and software delivers a HD home-theater quality video experience to the PC.

  • Support for the latest games and applications with DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 delivering more realism to real-time gaming.

  • A high-performance 3D architecture built for Microsoft Windows Vista— the industry's first operating system to require a GPU to realize its full potentiali.

  • NVIDIA PowerMizer® technology, with advanced power management features that enable the dramatic performance enhancements in the same power budget as the previous generation of NVIDIA mobile GPUs. The reduced power consumption and less heat generation result in cooler and smaller notebooks with increased battery life.
