NVIDIA 64-bit 3D Demo

NVIDIA today announced availability of a new 64-bit demonstration for NVIDIA
nForce™3- and AMD Athlon™ 64 processor-based PCs and notebooks. The
highly-graphical 3D demo portrays a liquid-like dancer who moves and grooves in
a surreal disco world, employing specialised 64-bit instructions that respond to
real-time user intervention and music MP3s.

The 3D dancer was originally created as a 32-bit technology demonstration.
NVIDIA ported the software code to demonstrate the increased performance offered
by the advanced 64-bit processing architecture of the AMD Athlon 64 processor.
Internal tests by NVIDIA show the new version outperforms the 32-bit version by
more than 27 percent in comparable computing environments. Tests were conducted
using an NVIDIA nForce3-based motherboard, an AMD Athlon 64 processor, an NVIDIA
GeForce™ 6800 GT graphics processing unit, and Microsoft® Windows® XP 64-bit
v.1195. To download a complimentary version of the 64-bit demo, please visit

“NVIDIA and AMD have a shared vision: to promote immersive, experiential, and
compelling graphics that were not possible with 32-bit memory limitations,” said
Marty Seyer, vice president and general manager, AMD’s Microprocessor Business
Unit, Computation Products Group. “The AMD64 platform enables best-in-class
performance and provides computer experiences that were never possible before.
Users who want a more exciting computing experience should definitely get an AMD
Athlon 64 processor-based system.”

“AMD64 technology provides customers with a combination of compatibility and
performance that pushes the limits of the x86 architecture,” added K B Ng,
marketing director at NVIDIA Asia Pacific. “Our new 64-bit demo demonstrates
some of the advantages that come with optimisation, such as improved physics and
fluid realism.”

NVDIA previously released drivers to support the Microsoft® Windows® XP 64-bit
Edition for Extended Systems beta operating system, and plans to continue to
develop new hardware technologies that can harness the power that true AMD64
platforms provide for desktop, workstation, and server environments. NVIDIA’s
driver development is 100% written for true 64-bit platforms. Drivers run on the
64-bit code paths for all APIs and are optimized for the additional memory space
of AMD64 systems.
