<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2"><strong>"The use of
powerful graphics is not limited to just games anymore. With their new GeForce
mGPUs, NVIDIA is pioneering the development of new technologies that are helping

president of JPR</strong></font></p>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2"><strong>Sydney, Australia</strong>
— October 29 <strong>, 2007</strong>— 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. </font></p>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">"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."</font></p>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">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. </font></p>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">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. </font></p>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">"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." </font></p>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">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&amp;W, Maxsun, MSI, Onda, Palit,
PC Partner, PNY, Supox, Unika, XFX, and more.</font></p>
