NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 Ultra On GDDR3

NVIDIA today announced that it is the first to offer graphics solutions based
on Graphics Double Data Rate 3 (GDDR-3) memory. This new memory technology
allows for lower power and higher clock speed board designs when combined with
NVIDIA GeForce FX graphics processing units (GPUs). Working with leading memory
manufacturer Samsung, add-in card partners are preparing worldwide shipments of
NVIDIA® GeForce(TM) FX 5700 Ultra-based add-in-cards with 128MB of GDDR-3
graphics memory.

GDDR-3 graphics memory is the next evolution of high-speed DDR SDRAM
technologies that have played a major role in enabling GPUs to drive complex
geometries and character animations and deliver visual effects on par with the
hottest motion pictures. GDDR-3 graphics memory enables higher memory clock
frequencies at a lower power level with fewer components and less constraints on
system designers. These technology advances enable NVIDIA partners to bring
higher performance solutions to consumers at better prices.

NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 Ultra GPU-based graphics boards with 128MB of GDDR-3
will be available in mid-March from leading add-in card venders worldwide,
including: Albatron, ASUS Computer International, BFG Technologies, Inc.,
eVGA.com Corporation, Gainward Co., Ltd., Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd., Leadtek
Research, Inc., MSI, Palit Microsystems, Inc., Point of View, PNY Technologies,
Inc., Sparkle Computer Co., Ltd., and XFX, a division of Pine.

"NVIDIA has taken real-time rendering to a level where it is almost
indistinguishable from the cinematic-quality rendering we see in movies," said
Bryn Young, director of memory marketing and sales at NVIDIA. "High-speed memory
technology such as Samsung’s new GDDR-3 graphics memory is essential to our goal
of advancing real-time graphics to photorealistic quality."

"We have been working with NVIDIA to make GDDR-3 graphics memory a reality in
the marketplace," said Mueez Deen, director of memory at Samsung Semiconductor,
Inc. "NVIDIA is consistently an aggressive adopter of new technology and we are
excited that an NVIDIA-based graphic solution has enabled Samsung to be the
first to market with GDDR-3."
