NVIDIA introduced three new GPUs—the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800, GeForce Go 7600, and GeForce Go 7400 GPUs—bringing cutting-edge 3D, high-definition, home theatre–quality video and advanced power management to the notebook market. These three additional GeForce Go 7 Series GPUs are included in tier one OEM notebooks launching at or shortly after CES. OEM design wins, based on the newest Intel Centrino mobile platform, include: ASUS, Acer, Gateway, LG, Samsung, SONY, and others. In addition, NVIDIA GeForce Go 7-series GPUs were selected to drive the video and graphics in the first notebook computer to integrate the new HD DVD media standard, the Toshiba Qosmio audio-video notebook PC. Those new notebooks that have been launched will be on display at CES this year, from January 5-8 at the NVIDIA booth, located in booth number 36200 in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) today introduced three new graphics
processing units (GPUs)—the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800, GeForce Go 7600, and GeForce
Go 7400 GPUs—bringing cutting-edge 3D, high-definition, home theatre–quality
video and advanced power management to the notebook market.

These three additional GeForce Go 7 Series GPUs are included in tier one OEM
notebooks launching at or shortly after CES. OEM design wins, based on the
newest Intel Centrino mobile platform, include: ASUS, Acer, Gateway, LG,
Samsung, SONY, and others. In addition, NVIDIA GeForce Go 7-series GPUs were
selected to drive the video and graphics in the first notebook computer to
integrate the new HD DVD media standard, the Toshiba Qosmio audio-video notebook
PC.

Those new notebooks that have been launched will be on display at CES this year,
from January 5-8 at the NVIDIA booth, located in booth number 36200 in the South
Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“Over the last year, NVIDIA has led the market for high performance GPUs for
enthusiast notebooks,” stated Dr. Jon Peddie, President of Tiburon, CA-based Jon
Peddie Research, the market research firm that tracks GPU chips. “We are now
seeing this performance per watt efficiency driving GeForce Go 7 GPUs deeper
into all segments of the notebook market, especially with the latest platforms
from Intel and AMD.”

Based on and following up on the extremely successful architecture as the
award-winning NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800 GTX GPU, the new GeForce Go 7800, Go 7600,
and Go 7400 GPUs feature a completely redesigned architecture that delivers a
number of groundbreaking achievements, including:

  • Next-generation NVIDIA HD PureVideo™ technology, which lets users
    experience home theater–quality HD video on the notebook PC—key to the
    exciting new HD-DVD and Blu-Ray HD formats.
  • Brand new programmable shader architecture, delivering twice the shading
    horsepower of the previous generation of notebook
  • Support for the latest games and applications with DirectX 9.0 Shader
    Model 3.0 and film quality high dynamic range (HDR) lighting, the must-have
    feature for developers delivering more realism to real-time gaming
  • Designed to provide top-tier support for the upcoming Microsoft® Windows®
    Vista OS
  • NVIDIA PowerMizer® technology, with advanced power management features
    that enable the dramatic performance enhancements in the same power budget as
    the previous generation of GPUs. With reduced power consumption and less heat
    generation, this results in cooler and smaller notebooks with increased
    battery life

These new notebook GPUs leverage the superior performance per watt efficiency
of the GeForce Go 7 Series architecture, delivering superior performance in
graphics and high definition video support at their respective notebook
segments:

  • The GeForce Go 7800 delivers enthusiast-level graphics and video
    performance for slimmer notebooks with significantly reduced power.
  • The GeForce Go 7600 provides the perfect balance of graphics and video
    performance for slim multimedia notebooks.
  • The GeForce Go 7400 creates the no-compromise mobile notebook, a small,
    thin, highly portable notebook, equipped with the latest graphics and
    high-definition video support.
