SANTA CLARA, CA—SEPTEMBER 24, 2003—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, today announced that a Technology Business Research (TBR) survey of U.S. high-tech professionals rated NVIDIA graphics solutions the best for quality and stability when compared to competing products. Polling professionals responsible for more than 1000 workstations in the graphics-heavy computer-aided design and digital content creation markets, the survey also found NVIDIA customers to be the most loyal and satisfied in the professional graphics field.
