NVIDIA Quadro® FX 4500 X2 Ultra High-End Graphics Solution Powers Film & Broadcast, Oil & Gas and Visualisation Systems

SANTA CLARA, CA—APRIL 24, 2006—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor technologies, today announced the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 X2 graphics solution, the latest addition to the company’s growing line of solutions for advanced visualisation systems requiring scalable graphics performance. This solution joins the recently announced NVIDIA Quadro FX 5500 card with the NVIDIA Quadro SDI and G-Sync option cards—the most extensive line of products for this growing market segment.

NVIDIA is well positioned for continued growth in this segment, having introduced its first solution in December 2004. Since then, the NVIDIA Ultra High-end solutions have been the choice of every major workstation OEM, accounting for approximately 80 percent of professional graphic card sales with the industry’s broadest application support for software running on Windows, Linux, Solaris, and Mac OS X operating systems.

“Autodesk works in close partnership with NVIDIA to deliver unique value to users by taking full advantage of the capabilities found in their solutions,” said Marc Petit, Vice President of Product Development at Autodesk’s Media & Entertainment Division. “NVIDIA Quadro SDI solutions offer real-time capabilities in our Discreet Lustre colour grading system, providing our customers with both integrated, high-performance graphics and a high-quality graphics-to-video sub-system.”

Extending the appeal of these products, NVIDIA offers a selection of industry-specific specialty solutions built from core graphics technology. The NVIDIA Quadro G-Sync option card, which delivers frame lock and genlock functionality, enables cost-effective implementation of visualisation clusters, power walls, and immersive environments for breakthrough medical research, oil exploration, and automotive and aerospace simulations.

NVIDIA SLI technology, offered on all ultra high-end products, also sets these NVIDIA Quadro solutions apart, offering a number of flexible modes that can scale performance, increase image quality, or increase highly 3D-intensive application screen real estate. oil and gas, medical imaging, visualisation and simulation, and broadcast and film customers have all made NVIDIA Quadro the de facto graphics standard in their respective industries.
