NVIDIA Brings GeForce mGPUs To Intel Platform
NVIDIA announced today that they will be bringing their GeForce 7-series motherboard graphics processing units (mGPUs) to the Intel platform. With the introduction of Vista and other 3D applications, NVIDIA is working to make GeForce's quality graphics power more accessible to the Intel user.
"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."
NVIDIA will be making three mGPUs available for the Intel platform: the Geforce 7150, 7100, and 7050. Motherboards featuring these mGPUs will be 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.
"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."
