NVIDIA today introduced the NVIDIA® GeForce(TM) 6200 graphics processing unit
(GPU) with TurboCache(TM) technology. NVIDIA TurboCache is a new, patented
hardware and software technology, which allows a GPU to render directly to
system memory, instead of using local memory on the graphics card. GeForce 6200
GPUs with TurboCache are shipping now and graphics cards are anticipated to be
available from leading add-in card manufacturers and in systems from leading PC
OEMs in January 2005.

– Support Microsoft(R) DirectX(R) 9.0 Shader Model 3.0, which is being
used to develop ultra-realistic, next-generation DirectX 9.0 games
– Feature NVIDIA PureVideo(TM) technology, a combination of hardware and
software that brings consumer electronics-quality video to the PC
– Are backed by the NVIDIA ForceWare(TM) software suite and NVIDIA
Unified Driver Architecture (UDA), ensuring industry-renowned
compatibility and reliability for a great user experience

NVIDIA today introduced the NVIDIA® GeForce(TM) 6200 graphics processing unit
(GPU) with TurboCache(TM) technology. NVIDIA TurboCache is a new, patented
hardware and software technology, which allows a GPU to render directly to
system memory, instead of using local memory on the graphics card. NVIDIA
TurboCache technology lowers on-board memory requirements, enabling system
builders to deliver PCs with more feature-rich GPUs and offer their customers
better graphics performance and advanced capabilities previously unattainable at
value prices.

"Customers in the value segment previously have had to settle for technology
that was one generation behind the cutting edge, high-end GPUs," said Ujesh
Desai, general manager of desktop graphics for NVIDIA. "For the first time ever,
NVIDIA TurboCache will deliver the award-winning feature set found on
current-generation high-end GPUs to the value segment of the PC market."

NVIDIA has re-architected the 3D graphics pipeline for the GeForce 6200 GPU with
TurboCache to allow direct rendering from the GPU to system memory by leveraging
the bi-directional PCI Express bandwidth. The TurboCache Manager dynamically
allocates memory for maximum system performance while intelligent software
algorithms maximize application performance.

The GeForce 6200 GPUs with TurboCache offer best-in-class performance in the
value segment(1) by taking the GeForce 6 Series graphics architecture, which has
been described as the most advanced in the world, top-to-bottom in the NVIDIA
product line-up. GeForce 6200 GPUs with TurboCache are the only graphics
processors in the value segment that:

– Support Microsoft(R) DirectX(R) 9.0 Shader Model 3.0, which is being
used to develop ultra-realistic, next-generation DirectX 9.0 games
– Feature NVIDIA PureVideo(TM) technology, a combination of hardware and
software that brings consumer electronics-quality video to the PC
– Are backed by the NVIDIA ForceWare(TM) software suite and NVIDIA
Unified Driver Architecture (UDA), ensuring industry-renowned
compatibility and reliability for a great user experience

GeForce 6200 GPUs with TurboCache are shipping now and graphics cards are
anticipated to be available from leading add-in card manufacturers and in
systems from leading PC OEMs in January 2005.

NVIDIA today announced a tidal wave of industry support for its recently
announced NVIDIA® TurboCache(TM) technology. Many of the world’s leading PC
OEMs, system builders, and add-in card partners have announced plans to build
