NVIDIA SLI TECHNOLOGY SELECTED BY GLOBAL PC BUILDERS FOR INTEL CORE 2 DUO LAUNCH
First Reviews of Intel Core 2 Duo Show NVIDIA nForce Motherboards and NVIDIA SLI Multi-GPU Solutions Taking the Performance Crown
SANTA CLARA, CA - JULY 27, 2006 - NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor technologies, today announced that many of the world's leading system builders have elected to launch new enthusiast gaming Intel Core 2 Duo-based systems exclusively with NVIDIA SLI technology. The Intel Core 2 Duo processor combined with an NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 or NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI or 570 SLI-based motherboard and one, two, or even four GeForce graphics processing units (GPUs), has already proven to be an unbeatable combination in terms of system level and gaming performance. This combination is earning early accolades from leading publications, such as Maximum PC magazine, which selected an Intel Core 2 Duo processor-compatible motherboard based on NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI technology and dual GeForce 7900 GTX GPUs for their 2006 Dream Machine cover story.
"We wanted a chipset that supported two x16 PCI Express connections to the GPUs with the potential to upgrade to Quad SLI," wrote Gordon Ung, Senior Editor of Maximum PC Magazine. "The NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI Intel Edition chipset, paired with XFX's hyperclocked XXX GeForce 7900 GTX graphics cards in SLI delivers the best performance."
