NVIDIA today announced that PCI-SIG has indicated NVIDIA PCI Express technology-based products have passed the Workshop compliance test suite by adding the products to the PCI-SIG Integrators List. NVIDIA is the only GPU manufacturer on the PCI-SIG Integrators List, and has a full range of NVIDIA products listed, including GPUs designed for workstations, desktops, and notebook computers. To be placed on the PCI-SIG Integrators List, products must undergo a significant set of interoperability and compliance testing requirements, and pass a detailed ‘Compliance Checklist’. Additionally, the soon-to-be announced next-generation NVIDIA GeForce 6 Series mobile GPU has passed the testing for inclusion on the Integrators List.

NVIDIA today announced that PCI-SIG*, the Special Interest Group responsible
for Conventional PCI*, PCI-X and PCI Express* industry-standard I/O
technologies, has indicated NVIDIA PCI Express technology-based products have
passed the Workshop compliance test suite by adding the products to the PCI-SIG
Integrators List. NVIDIA is the only graphics processing unit (GPU) manufacturer
on the PCI-SIG Integrators List, and has a full range of NVIDIA products listed,
including GPUs designed for workstations, desktops, and notebook computers. To
be placed on the PCI-SIG Integrators List, products must undergo a significant
set of interoperability and compliance testing requirements, and pass a detailed
‘Compliance Checklist’.

Tony Pierce, PCI-SIG Chairman stated, “NVIDIA’s contribution to the PCI Express
standard is evident in the breadth of their product offerings that passed our
compliance testing. PCI-SIG congratulates NVIDIA for being a part of the first
group of member companies to be listed in our Integrators List for their PCI
Express technology products. We look forward to NVIDIA’s continuous support to
invigorate the PC and workstation markets through the additional value that PCI
Express technology has to offer.”

“The fact that NVIDIA brought such a broad selection of PCI Express products to
market quickly and is the only major GPU manufacturer on the PCI SIG Integrators
List is a testament to our world-class engineering and design strategy,”
commented K B Ng, marketing director at NVIDIA Asia Pacific.
