NVIDIA unveiled the GoForce™ 3D 4500, the world’s first 3D wireless media processor (WMP). The NVIDIA® GoForce 3D 4500 WMP enables a whole new level of interactive content not previously possible on cell phones, PDAs, or other handheld devices. For the first time, mobile content developers can harness a powerful 3D medium to create rich, dynamic, lifelike worlds and characters. Additionally, mobile devices powered by the new 3D WMP will be able to synthesise amazingly realistic environments with objects that behave according to complex physics and intelligent characters with true-to-life personalities. The GoForce 3D 4500 WMP also supports standard 3D application programming interfaces, including OpenGL-ES, D3D-Mobile, and M3G. NVIDIA is sampling the GoForce 3D 4500 today to major phone OEMs and handheld manufacturers. The first shipping products with the GoForce 3D 4500 will be Tiger Telematics’ Gizmondo portable game console. Phones featuring the GoForce 3D 4500 are expected to ship in the first half of 2005.

NVIDIA Corporation, a worldwide leader in graphics and digital media
processors, today unveiled the GoForce™ 3D 4500, the world’s first 3D wireless
media processor (WMP).

The NVIDIA® GoForce 3D 4500 WMP enables a whole new level of interactive content
not previously possible on cell phones, PDAs, or other handheld devices. For the
first time, mobile content developers can harness a powerful 3D medium to create
rich, dynamic, lifelike worlds and characters. Additionally, mobile devices
powered by the new 3D WMP will be able to synthesise amazingly realistic
environments with objects that behave according to complex physics and
intelligent characters with true-to-life personalities.

“Mobile phone OEMs are continuing to differentiate their products and services
on multimedia capabilities, and 3D graphics is one of the key new technologies
going into advanced phones,” said Allen Leibovitch, manager of semiconductor
research for IDC. “Successful semiconductor solutions will not only include
well-supported 3D graphics, but also still image and video processing while
consuming a minimum amount of power, and should drive the next evolution of
multimedia for advanced handheld devices.”

“We believe the NVIDIA GoForce 3D 4500 will drive a major discontinuity in the
handheld market, a market already known for its staggering pace of innovation,”
said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO of NVIDIA Corporation. “By enabling the
delivery of stunning content — whether it is photos, videos or games — NVIDIA
intends to ensure that mobile phone users enjoy the wonderful experiences that
will become commonplace in the digital media era.”

The unique features of the GoForce 3D 4500 WMP include:
• Specifically designed for handsets, the GoForce 3D 4500 features geometry
processing for arcade-quality 3D acceleration and gaming
• Programmable shaders, bilinear and trilinear texture filtering, texture
compression, support for six simultaneous textures, and a 40-bit color pipeline
for high-resolution detailed images
• Revolutionary new NVIDIA nPower technology for better battery life allowing
for longer talk time
• Support for MPEG-4 and H.263 formats for VHS-quality recording and playback
• A 3.0 megapixel JPEG codec, for capturing and viewing sharp, crystal-clear
photos

NVIDIA will support the GoForce 3D line with a content strategy of working with
carriers, game developers, and publishers across the industry to enhance the
delivery of rich compelling content to cell phones, PDAs, gamepad units, and
other handheld devices. The GoForce 3D 4500 WMP also supports standard 3D
application programming interfaces, including OpenGL-ES, D3D-Mobile, and M3G.

NVIDIA is sampling the GoForce 3D 4500 today to major phone OEMs and handheld
manufacturers. The first shipping products with the GoForce 3D 4500 will be
Tiger Telematics’ Gizmondo portable game console. Phones featuring the GoForce
3D 4500 are expected to ship in the first half of 2005. For further information
