CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW (CES)-LAS VEGAS, NV-JANUARY 06, 2006 -NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) took its acclaimed SLI technology to a new level today by introducing support for the industry's first ever Quad SLI-certified PC. Delivering the most extreme high definition gaming experience available on the PC, Quad SLI features four of NVIDIA's flagship GeForce® 7800 GTX GPUs with an NVIDIA nForce®4 SLI X16 motherboard. This revolutionary technology was introduced today on the forthcoming Dell XPS 600 Renegade, as part of a keynote presentation by Michael Dell at CES in Las Vegas, NV.

  • Crank up their image quality with 32x antialiasing and 16x anisotropic filtering
  • Maximize their shader and texture settings for a truly immersive gaming experience

"Today's demonstration of the new Dell XPS 600 Renegade with our Quad SLI technology takes gaming to new levels," said Dan Vivoli, executive vice president of marketing at NVIDIA. "The ability to run today's hottest titles in extreme HD resolutions with all the eye candy turned on is absolutely amazing. Strap yourself in, because you are in for the ride of your life."

In addition, NVIDIA also announced today that Dell will be shipping the award-winning NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX 512 in the Dell XPS 600 PC.
