ushering in new levels of graphics performance and video quality for small
compact notebooks such as the new ASUS A8Js.
Fully utilising the visual processing capabilities of the new GeForce GPU with
512MB memory and NVIDIA PureVideo™ technology, the new notebook delivers
immersive, realistic 3D graphics for games and smooth, high-quality playback of
DVD movies and HD video. In addition, the new notebook features a gorgeous
14-inch Color Shine glare-type widescreen display, a built-in camera, full wired
and wireless connectivity, including Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 2.0 EDR, and
Wi-Fi technologies, and a powerful multimedia system configuration based on the
latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors.

A8Js GeForce Go 7700 Powers ASUS A8Js Notebook

NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) today announced that ASUS has selected the
new NVIDIA GeForce Go 7700 graphics processing unit to create the graphically
powerful, thin-and-light A8Js notebook. The new GeForce GPU delivers 50% more
pixel bandwidth than the NVIDIA GPU used previously in the ASUS A8 series ,
ushering in new levels of graphics performance and video quality for small
compact notebooks such as the new ASUS A8Js.

Fully utilising the visual processing capabilities of the new GeForce GPU with
512MB memory and NVIDIA PureVideo™ technology, the new notebook delivers
immersive, realistic 3D graphics for games and smooth, high-quality playback of
DVD movies and HD video. In addition, the new notebook features a gorgeous
14-inch Color Shine glare-type widescreen display, a built-in camera, full wired
and wireless connectivity, including Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 2.0 EDR, and
Wi-Fi technologies, and a powerful multimedia system configuration based on the
latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors.

“The new A8Js notebook is designed to raise the performance and multimedia
capabilities of thin and lightweight notebooks,” said Tony Chen, General Manager
of ASUS Notebook Business. “The GeForce Go 7700 GPU, with its powerful 3D,
video, and power saving technologies, enables the A8Js to deliver a true-to-life
digital entertainment experience.”

The first notebook GPUs manufactured using 80-nanometer process technology, the
NVIDIA GeForce Go 7700 GPU features advanced technologies that deliver
cutting-edge 3D, high-definition (HD) video and advanced power management to the
notebooks, enhancing the mobile computing experience. Features include:
• Support for the latest games and applications with DirectX 9.0 Shader Model
3.0 and film quality high dynamic range (HDR) lighting, enabling more realistic,
real-time gaming.
• H.264 hardware accelerated support through NVIDIA PureVideo technology — the
combination of HD video processors and software delivers a HD home-theatre
quality video experience to the PC.
• NVIDIA PowerMizer® technology, with advanced power management features that
enable dramatic performance enhancements in the same power budget as the
previous generation of NVIDIA mobile GPUs. The reduced power consumption and
less heat generation result in cooler and smaller notebooks with increased
battery life.
• A high-performance 3D architecture built for Microsoft Windows Vista™ — the
industry’s first operating system to require a dedicated GPU to realise its full
potential.

“Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of high-quality
video and fast 3D graphics on their PCs, yet most notebooks fall short on
performance,” said Jeff Fisher, Senior Vice President of the GPU Business Unit
at NVIDIA. “The new ASUS notebook and GeForce GPU are designed to deliver levels
of visual performance and quality that both movie fans and gamers can
appreciate.”
