NVIDIA announced that its NVIDIA nForce™3 media and
communications processors (MCPs) — which have been lauded by major industry
publications and technology Web sites for their stability and performance —
fully support the new AMD Athlon64 Processor 3400+ announced earlier today. The
NVIDIA nForce3 MCPs integrate hardware and software technologies that expand PC
desktop, gaming, and digital media functionality. By providing built-in
connections for high-speed Gigabit networks; Serial ATA disk controllers; up to
eight USB 2.0 ports; and integrated RAID solutions, the NVIDIA nForce3 MCPs
deliver accelerated performance for multiple computing environments. All NVIDIA
nForce3 MCPs support the robust NVIDIA® ForceWare™ Unified Software Environment
(USE), which provides enhanced functionality and performance, including
utilities for monitoring system performance, networking configurations, audio
environments, and more.

NVIDIA has a full family of NVIDIA nForce MCPs for both 64-bit and 32-bit
desktop PC markets, including NVIDIA nForce3 Professional for the 1P and 2P
workstation and professional segments; NVIDIA nForce3 Go for the mobile notebook
market; and NVIDIA nForce2 for the mainstream computing markets. PC systems and
motherboards based on the NVIDIA nForce MCPs are currently available from
leading manufacturers, including: ABIT Computer Corp., AOpen, ASUSTeK Computer
Inc., Biostar Microtech Int’l Corp., Chaintech Computer Co. Ltd., DFI, EPoX
International Inc., GigaByte Technology, Jetway Information Co. Ltd., Leadtek,
MSI, Shuttle Computer Group, Inc., Soltek Computer Inc., and XFX.

“Our close working relationship with AMD has allowed us to design NVIDIA nForce3
as a scalable architecture that can take full advantage of AMD’s current and
upcoming product roadmap,” said K B Ng, marketing director at NVIDIA Asia
Pacific. “The new Athlon64 Processor 3400+ extends AMD’s performance lead in the
desktop PC market, and is a perfect match to our entire line of NVIDIA nForce3
MCPs, including our upcoming NVIDIA nForce3 250GB MCPs, which features the
industry’s first native Gigabit Ethernet solution.”
