NVIDIA Showcases nForce4 SLI & GeForce 6600 at Intel Channel Conference

May 5th 2005 | NVIDIA

NVIDIA today announced its participation in the Spring 2005 Intel Channel Conference (ICC) tour. ICC is a biannual training road show, specifically designed to educate Intel Product Dealers on the latest product launches, technology announcements, and program benefits.

NVIDIA is showcasing its flagship platform, graphics, and high-definition video products, including:
· NVIDIA nForce™4 SLI™ Intel Edition media and communications processors (MCPs).
· NVIDIA® GeForce™ 6600 graphics processing units (GPUs), featuring high-definition PureVideo™ technology, in a passively-cooled, single PCI Express slot configuration.

John Lonergan, vice president of worldwide channel operations at NVIDIA, commented: “The Intel Channel Conference puts us face-to-face with more than 8,000 system builders in North America. It provides a great opportunity for us to demonstrate cutting-edge technologies—such as NVIDIA SLI and PureVideo—to some of our most important customers. In addition, we are pleased to be able to offer exciting new reference designs for next-generation Media Center PCs.”

The new NVIDIA Media Center PC reference designs offer system builders and OEMs an easy-to-implement blueprint and complete list of components to assemble high-definition living room PCs with powerful features at compelling price points. When compared to previous-generation PCs, these new living room-friendly designs will operate at cooler temperatures and consume less power, enabling them to be a physically smaller and quieter addition to the consumer’s home entertainment center.

The new reference designs leverage NVIDIA nForce MCPs, GeForce 6 Series GPUs, PureVideo technology, and an NVIDIA NVTV™ PC Tuner Card.

NVIDIA partners, including ASUS, Foxconn, and MSI Corp. are making a strong showing during the ICC tour by demonstrating NVIDIA nForce4 SLI Intel Edition-based products:

ASUS: “The powerful of combination of NVIDIA SLI and ASUS AI overclocking technologies sets the high-mark for PC performance. We are extremely pleased to bring this award-winning combination together again for the Intel platform in P5ND2-SLI Premium motherboards,” said Raymond Chen, vice president of marketing, ASUS Computer International.

FoxConn: “Foxconn is extremely excited about the opportunity to offer NVIDIA-based solutions for the Intel platform,” commented Ed Leckliter, director of channel products for Foxconn’s Channel Service Division for the Americas (CSD1). “The Foxconn NF4SLI7AA-8EKRS2 capitalizes on the feature-rich NVIDIA nForce4 SLI Intel Edition chipset to bring state-of-the-art performance to enthusiasts and corporate power users worldwide.”

MSI Computer Corp.: Daniel Wang, vice president of sales at MSI Computer Corp., added: “NVIDIA is setting the pace in designing powerful motherboard chipsets and graphics processors for high-performance computing, which in turn enables us to deliver products with exceptional sustained performance to our customers.”
