NVIDIA Achieves Record Number of Design Wins for Intel 'Sandy Bridge' PC Platform
Singapore, 17 Dec 2010 - PC manufacturers are poised to launch a record 200 new products in the first half of 2011 that feature NVIDIA GeForce graphics processing units (GPUs), paired with the new generation of Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs.
The designs are expected to span a variety of notebook and desktop systems from leading OEMs including Acer, Alienware, ASUS, Dell, Fujitsu-Siemens, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, Sony, and Toshiba.
Demand for graphics processing power continues to grow, and computer makers are increasingly turning to NVIDIA GeForce GPUs to deliver high levels of performance not possible with integrated graphics on applications such as games, video editing, web browsing, and 3D movies. Unlike basic graphics integrated into Sandy Bridge CPUs, GeForce GPUs provide advanced features and increased compatibility for the latest PC games including those based on Microsoft DirectX 11.
Only NVIDIA GeForce GPUs offer differentiated features such as:
- NVIDIA 3D Vision support, for eye-popping immersive 3D environments
- PhysX physics engine support, for experiencing games with realistic physics effects
- CUDA architecture support, for GPU computing applications
- NVIDIA Verde notebook drivers, for system stability and optimal performance
- Support for NVIDIA 3DTV Play software, for connecting 3D Vision-based notebooks and desktops to a 3D TV
