The graphics processing unit (GPU) has the largest bandwidth appetite of all PC subsystems, and from the start NVIDIA has been a key contributor to the PCI Express architecture, as both a developer and supporter.

NVIDIA is excited to help shape this next-generation specification to ensure that NVIDIA GPUs get the necessary throughput required to push the visual envelope for a seamless multimedia experience with cinematic-quality graphics at its core.

NVIDIA is a key PCI Express SIG member and contributor to the following PCI SIGs:

  • Graphics
  • Protocol
  • Electrical
  • Mechanical
  • Cable
  • Mobile
  • System BIOS
  • Board Design
  • Software
