NVIDIA today announced the GoForce 3D 4800, the Company’s newest wireless
media processor (WMP), which transforms multimedia performance on mobile devices
for an unprecedented portable entertainment experience. This new WMP integrates
highly realistic 3D graphics, multi-megapixel still imaging, high-quality video
capture and playback that rivals home console gaming systems, digital cameras,
and video camcorders. To capture high quality photos, the GoForce 3D 4800
processor includes a JPEG hardware encoder capable of capturing images with up
to 3 MegaPixel (2048 x 1536) resolution.

The GoForce 3D 4800 media processor enables players to enjoy one of the most
intense gaming experiences delivered on a mobile device by boosting 3D
performance by 40% over the previous generation of mobile processors(1). GoForce
3D 4800 WMP’s ground-breaking pixel-shader architecture with support for up to
six simultaneous textures enables the GoForce 3D 4800 WMP to deliver spectacular
image quality for 3D applications. Phones based on the NVIDIA GoForce 3D 4800
WMP are expected to be released by the end of 2005.

To capture high quality photos, the GoForce 3D 4800 processor includes a JPEG
hardware encoder capable of capturing images with up to 3 MegaPixel (2048 x
1536) resolution. The unique NVIDIA FotoPack(TM) technology automatically
optimizes JPEG compression to allow users to store up to three times more photos
in the limited memory space on a mobile phone, allowing consumers to capture,
store and share more pictures.

"The need to preserve talktime and the desire for immersive multimedia
capabilities has always created a conflict for cellphone manufacturers," said J.
Gerry Purdy Ph.D, principal analyst for Mobiletrax. "The NVIDIA approach to this
problem is comprehensive and innovative. GoForce wireless media processors
innovate by giving OEMs new ways to manage multimedia content through
technologies like FotoPack while closely managing battery life with NVIDIA
nPower technology."

"Current wireless platforms cannot deliver the multimedia performance users have
come to expect from single purpose systems," said Glenn Schuster, general
manager, NVIDIA wireless media processor business. "Consumers want a portable
multimedia device that lets them experience great gaming, superb imaging
capabilities, and lengthy talk time. With stunning 3D gaming performance, 3
Megapixel digital photos, TV-quality video capture, and nPower technology the
GoForce 3D 4800 WMP will offer in a single device a mobile experience that
rivals any home entertainment device on the market. Imagine a full-fledged game
console in your pocket that is also a phone."

An embedded hardware MPEG-4 codec allows OEMs using the GoForce 3D 4800 WMP to
add high-quality camcorder-like video capability never before available in a
wireless handset. The high-powered codec captures VGA resolution MPEG-4 video at
up to 30 frames per second (fps). Moreover, it allows users to playback VGA
resolution video, such as television programs or movies stored on an SD card, at
rates up to 30 fps, turning their mobile phone into a convenient video
entertainment device. The new media processor even supports real-time,
full-duplex, two-way video conferencing at CIF (352 x 288) resolution at 30 fps.

Long battery life is a key yardstick of handset quality. Using proprietary
NVIDIA nPower technology, the GoForce 3D 4800 processor consumes half the power
across all media applications compared to software solutions running on
application processors alone(2).

Phones based on the NVIDIA GoForce 3D 4800 WMP are expected to be released by
the end of 2005.
