NVIDIA UNVEILS A NEW OPEN STANDARD MEMORY SPECIFICATION DESIGNED TO PROVIDE HIGHER LEVELS OF SYSTEM PERFORMANCE
Launch Partner Corsair Will Be the First to Bring Products with New Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP) To Market
SANTA CLARA, CA -- MAY 15, 200 6-- NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor technologies, today announced the results of a collaborative memory development effort called Enhanced Performance Profiles, or EPP, which allows consumers to easily expose new, advanced performance memory settings built into high performance memory DIMMs for even higher levels of overall PC system performance. In addition, NVIDIA also announced today that Corsair Memory, the worldwide leader in design and manufacture of high performance memory, is the first memory vendor to announce support for the new EPP specification, and is expected to have new EPP-based memory DIMMs available in the channel later this month.
"Enhanced Performance Profiles are a significant change in the way overclocking and performance hardware compatibility is defined and sold. The industry now has a new standard on how a performance memory SPD should be written and communicated with the motherboard BIOS," said John Beekley, VP of Applications Engineering at Corsair Memory. "Our expectation is that EPP will be adopted by major motherboard companies, core-logic manufacturers, and other memory companies." READ MORE...
