NVIDIA® Launches Three New Additions To It's GeForce® Go 7 Series Notebook GPUs

New GeForce Go 7800, GeForce Go 7600, and GeForce Go 7400 GPUs are Intel's GPU of choice for latest Centrino platform

CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW (CES)-LAS VEGAS, NV-JANUARY 05, 2006-NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) today introduced three new graphics processing units (GPUs), the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800, GeForce Go 7600, and GeForce Go 7400 GPU. These new NVIDIA GPUs bring cutting-edge 3D, high-definition, home theatre quality video and advanced power management to the notebook PC market.

The three new additions to the GeForce Go 7 Series will be included in tier one OEM notebooks, based on the newest Intel Centrino mobile platform, launching at or shortly after CES. These include models from ASUS, Acer, Gateway, LG, Samsung, SONY, and others. In addition, NVIDIA GeForce Go 7-series GPUs have been selected to drive the video and graphics in the first notebook computer to integrate the new HD DVD media standard, the Toshiba Qosmio audio-video notebook PC.

The newly launched notebooks will be on display at CES this year, from January 5-8 at the NVIDIA stand, located in booth number 36200 in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

"Over the last year, NVIDIA has led the market for high performance GPUs for the enthusiast- level notebooks," stated Dr. Jon Peddie, President of Tiburon, CA-based Jon Peddie Research, the market research firm that tracks GPU chips. "We are now seeing this performance per watt efficiency driving GeForce Go 7 GPUs deeper into all segments of the notebook market, especially with the latest platforms from Intel and AMD."

Following up on the extremely successful architecture of the award-winning NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800 GTX GPU, the new GeForce Go 7800, Go 7600, and Go 7400 GPUs feature a completely redesigned architecture that delivers a number of groundbreaking achievements, including:

  • Next-generation NVIDIA HD PureVideo™ technology, which enables users to experience home theatre-quality HD video on a notebook PC, which is key to the new HD-DVD and Blu-Ray HD formats.
  • Brand new programmable shader architecture, delivering twice the shading horsepower of the previous generation of notebook
  • Support for the latest games and applications with DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 and film quality high dynamic range (HDR) lighting, the must-have feature for developers wanting to deliver more realism to real-time gaming
  • Designed to provide top-tier support for the upcoming Microsoft® Windows® Vista OS
  • NVIDIA PowerMizer® technology, with advanced power management features that enable the dramatic performance enhancements in the same power budget as the previous generation of GPUs. With reduced power consumption and less heat generation, this results in cooler and smaller notebooks with increased battery life

These new notebook GPUs leverage the superior performance per watt efficiency of the GeForce Go 7 Series architecture, delivering superior performance in graphics and high definition video support:

  • The GeForce Go 7800 delivers enthusiast-level graphics and video performance for slimmer notebooks with significantly reduced power
  • The GeForce Go 7600 provides the perfect balance of graphics and video performance for slim multimedia notebooks
  • The GeForce Go 7400 creates the no-compromise mobile notebook, a small, thin, highly portable notebook, equipped with the latest graphics and high-definition video support
