NVIDIA Released GeForce 7 Series mGPUs for Intel

NVIDIA has extended its family of GeForce 7-Series motherboard graphics processing units (mGPUs) to Intel processor-based PCs. Starting today, GeForce graphics are more affordable and accessible than ever before for Intel customers. The GeForce 7150, 7100, and 7050 mGPUs are designed to support a full range of Intel CPUs (Core 2, Pentium, and Celeron CPU families), including upcoming 45nm Intel “Penryn” processors and other new features, such as 1333MHz frontside bus technology. In addition to delivering an unparalleled graphics experience to mainstream PCs, the GeForce 7-Series mGPUs support optional HDMI or DVI digital output capability to enable the playback of protected digital content directly from the PC to high- definition televisions and other displays.

The recent introduction of Microsoft Vista and a slew of other 3D-optimized
applications, including Google Maps and Microsoft Office 2007, has redefined
customers’ expectations for experiencing visually-rich mainstream applications
on their home and business PCs. As a result, consumers have now made the GPU a
primary requirement in their PC purchasing decisions. As the only independent
GPU provider, NVIDIA Corporation is well positioned to capitalize on this
emerging trend, and is proud to announce that it has extended its family of
GeForce 7-Series motherboard graphics processing units (mGPUs) to Intel
processor-based PCs. Starting today, GeForce graphics are more affordable and
accessible than ever before for Intel customers.

"The use of powerful graphics is not limited to just games anymore. Many of
today’s most popular business and consumer applications, including Adobe
Acrobat, Second Life, and Apple iTunes are optimized for the power of a modern
GPU," said Jon Peddie, president of Jon Peddie Research (JPR), a leading market
research firm based in Tiburon, CA. "With their new GeForce mGPUs, NVIDIA is
pioneering the development of new graphics technologies that are helping to
evolve the capabilities of mainstream PC platforms. Customers understand that
their overall PC experience is largely defined by the graphics processors.
Anyone, from a seasoned IT pro to a college student can compare the PC
experience delivered by NVIDIA mGPUs against any traditional integrated graphics
solution and realize the dramatic impact a modern GPU can make."

The NVIDIA GeForce 7150 mGPU delivers the performance of an entry-level discrete
GPU and leading graphics compatibility when compared against traditional
integrated graphics solutions. The GeForce 7150, 7100, and 7050 mGPUs are
designed to support a full range of Intel CPUs (Core 2, Pentium, and Celeron CPU
families), including upcoming 45nm Intel "Penryn" processors and other new
features, such as 1333MHz frontside bus technology. In addition to delivering an
unparalleled graphics experience to mainstream PCs, the GeForce 7-Series mGPUs
support optional HDMI or DVI digital output capability to enable the playback of
protected digital content directly from the PC to high- definition televisions
and other displays.

Designed as single chip solutions for cost-effective PC system integration for
both AMD and Intel platforms, all NVIDIA GeForce 7-Series mGPUs enable the
premium graphics experience on Windows Vista, and incorporate NVIDIA nForce
core-logic functionality, including advanced storage and networking features for
powering today’s connected digital lifestyles.

"Integrated graphics are no longer ‘good enough’ for mainstream applications,"
said Drew Henry, general manager of MCP business at NVIDIA. "Windows Vista has
opened consumer’s eyes to an entirely new visual experience. We are ecstatic
that our customers will now be able to harness the power of NVIDIA graphics and
application compatibility and have an exceptional PC experience no matter what
their price budget or intended application usage is."

NVIDIA is the recognized market leader for GPU desktop and notebook solutions
for both Intel and AMD platforms. New PCs and motherboards featuring the NVIDIA
GeForce 7-series mGPUs for Intel platforms will be available later this month
directly from global system integrators and industry-leading motherboard
partners including: Abit, Asrock, Asus, Biostar, Colorful, ECS, EVGA, Foxconn,
Galaxy, Gigabyte, Hassee, Inno3D, Jetway, J&W, Maxsun, MSI, Onda, Palit, PC
Partner, PNY, Supox, Unika, XFX, and more.
