FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANTA CLARA, CA-MAY 22, 2006—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor technologies, today announced details of the Company's participation in the season finale of ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," which aired on May 21. NVIDIA donated and installed computing, networking, and consumer electronics products for a new house built for an Irvington, New Jersey family with special-needs children.
"It was a privilege to take part in rebuilding the home of the Turner family," said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO of NVIDIA. "In this wonderful new home, we've installed the latest and greatest technologies from the computer industry. This technology will open up a world of learning, exploration, and discovery for the Turner children. We hope it will transform their lives."
The May 21 episode featured the Turner family home, where a single mother lives with nine of her 18 adopted special-needs children. After learning that the family's home had burned down last year, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition stepped in to build a new and improved home that could accommodate the children's needs. NVIDIA helped the Turners by donating state-of-the-art hardware and software. The donation included two custom-built NVIDIA® SLITM-ready desktop PCs with wide-screen flat panel monitors for the teenaged boys' room. For other family members, NVIDIA provided a networked color printer, digital camera, and NVIDIA-based laptop computers. The computers were preloaded with educational, productivity, and entertainment-oriented software appropriate for use by all members of the Turner household.
A team of NVIDIA employees, including co-founders Jen-Hsun Huang and Chris Malachowsky, worked on site with the show's technical team and designers to install and set up the equipment. The team also provided a high-speed wireless network to make it easy for the Turner family to access the Internet in any part of the home.
