NVIDIA Corporation, the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor
technologies, and Activision, Inc. announced today that NVIDIA GeForce graphics
processing units (GPUs) have been selected by Activision as the preferred
platform for Call of Duty® 2, the highly-anticipated sequel to Infinity Ward’s
2003 Game of the Year.

"Call of Duty 2 is an avalanche of heart-pounding action and non-stop epic
intensity. In order to achieve such a high level of lifelike immersion and
authenticity throughout the gameplay experience, the team needed to utilize the
most advanced graphics tools and techniques possible," said Chuck Huebner, head
of worldwide studios, Activision, Inc. "NVIDIA has recognized this need and
delivered the hardware technology enabling the game to be developed on NVIDIA
GPUs in both single GPU and SLI configurations, making NVIDIA the preferred
graphics hardware for Call of Duty 2."

To enable gamers to experience Call of Duty 2 as it was truly intended, partners
of NVIDIA will bundle Call of Duty 2 with select graphics cards based on the
award-winning series of GeForce GPUs for a limited time. NVIDIA bundles will
occur simultaneously with the Windows® PC launch of Call of Duty 2 scheduled for
Oct. 25.

"Thanks to the new Call of Duty 2 engine, the title makes extensive use of
advanced vertex and pixel shader technology to create stunning special effects
such as soft shadows, heat distortion, and soft particles to achieve amazing
realism," said Bill Rehbock, director of developer relations at NVIDIA. "Call of
Duty 2 performance almost doubles when you combine two NVIDIA GeForce 7 GPUs in
SLI(TM) mode, making it a showcase title for GeForce 7 graphics cards."

A pre-sale program for GeForce 7-based graphics cards bundled with Call of Duty
2 starts immediately. For further information on NVIDIA GPUs bundled with Call
