NSIST on NVIDIA For a Better Media Center Experience

NVIDIA-based Media Center Edition desktop and notebook PCs deliver a complete digital entertainment solution. Imagine all of your digital media—TV, pictures, home movies, music—in one place, and accessible with a single remote control. With the combined power of the Microsoft® Windows® XP Media Center Edition operating system and NVIDIA technology, your computer has the power to take you directly into the digital media future.

At WinHEC 2005, NVIDIA presented second generation living room PC reference design which will enable system builders and OEMs to build more powerful living room PCs at compelling price points. The suggested designs have a richer feature set, consume less heat and power, and are a physically smaller and quieter addition to a consumer's living room.
