NVIDIA Corporation today
announced that many of the world’s leading system builders have elected
to launch new enthusiast gaming Intel Core 2 Duo-based systems
exclusively with NVIDIA SLI technology. The Intel Core 2 Duo processor
combined with an NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 or NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI or 570
SLI-based motherboard and one, two, or even four GeForce(r) graphics
processing units (GPUs), has already proven to be an unbeatable
combination in terms of system level and gaming performance. This
combination is earning early accolades from leading publications, such
as Maximum PC magazine, which selected an Intel Core 2 Duo
processor-compatible motherboard based on NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI
technology and dual GeForce 7900 GTX GPUs for their 2006 Dream Machine
cover story.

“We wanted a chipset that supported two x16 PCI Express connections to
the GPUs with the potential to upgrade to Quad SLI,” wrote Gordon Ung,
Senior Editor of Maximum PC Magazine. “The NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI Intel
Edition chipset, paired with XFX’s hyperclocked XXX GeForce 7900 GTX
graphics cards in SLI delivers the best performance.”

This level of performance, broad software compatibility, and the breadth
of products in the NVIDIA SLI ecosystem-which now includes more than 320
components ranging from power supplies to memory-is fueling the
continued momentum and adoption of NVIDIA SLI technology by the world’s
leading system builders, all of whom are excited about bringing
cutting-edge Intel Core 2-based systems into the marketplace.

“Alienware has had an extensive track record of award-winning systems
that utilize NVIDIA SLI technology, so it made perfect sense to arm our
powerful new Intel Core 2 Duo-based systems, including the Area-51 ALX
and Area-51 7500, with NVIDIA SLI,” said Frank Azor, Senior Vice
President and General Manager of Alienware’s Worldwide Product Group, a
manufacturer of high-performance desktop PCs in the U.S. “Because of our
reputation for performance, customers expect nothing less than the best
from us, and the combination of NVIDIA SLI and Intel Core 2 Duo helps
ensure we have the capabilities to create systems that meet those lofty
expectations.”

Global system builders now offering NVIDIA SLI technology-based Intel
Core 2 Duo systems include: ABS, Alienware, Alternate, Amax/Ajump,
Atelco, Carri, Casper, CyberPower, Everest, Evesham, Falcon Northwest,
FDC, HCL Infosystems, Hyrican, iBuyPower, Infinity, Komplete, Kraftway,
Levi, Maingear, Mesh, Monarch, Next, NTT, Paradigit, PC Club, Polywell,
Quiet PC, Sahara Computers, Scan, SHG, Starmaster, Systemax, Tarox,
Topnotch, Velocity Micro, Vicious PC, Vigor Gaming, Vobis, Voodoo PC,
and others.
