FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

SANTA CLARA, CA—AUGUST 9, 2006—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor technologies, has made extreme high-definition PC gaming a reality for everyone with the release of the new NVIDIA ForceWare® 91.45 graphics driver with Quad NVIDIA SLI technology support. For the first time, users in the do-it yourself (DIY) segment have access to Quad SLI technology, which utilizes the power of four GPUs to make extreme high-definition gaming (XHD)—with resolutions of up to 2560x1600—a possibility for hardcore gamers and computer enthusiasts.

Enthusiasts can now build their own ultimate gaming PC by combining:

  • ForceWare 91.45 graphics driver

  • Two NVIDIA SLI-Ready GeForce® 7950 GX2 graphics cards

  • An NVIDIA nForce®4 SLI X16- or a new NVIDIA nForce 590/570 SLI-based motherboard

  • An AMD® Athlon™ FX- 62 or Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor

"By offering this level of graphics performance to the innovative minds of PC enthusiasts who prefer to build and tune their own systems, we expect to see 'maximum performance' redefined," said Ujesh Desai, general manager of desktop GPUs at NVIDIA. "For the ultimate gaming platform, you can't go wrong with a system built around a NVIDIA nForce SLI MCP-based motherboard and a pair of NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GX2 graphics cards and completing the set-up with a top-of-the-line CPU and a widescreen display."

The NVIDIA ForceWare 91.45 graphics driver is available now on www.nvidia.com/drivers.

NVIDIA SLI technology is a revolutionary platform innovation that allows users to intelligently scale graphics performance by combining multiple NVIDIA graphics solutions in a single system with an NVIDIA nForce SLI MCP-based motherboard. By using SLI technology, users can put two GeForce 7950 GX2 graphics cards to work in parallel, harnessing the power of four GPUs to deliver XHD resolutions, including an incredible 2560x1600, while still maintaining ultra smooth frame rates, stunning visuals and pristine image quality for an immersive gaming experience.
