NVIDIA Extends Performance Leadership with GeForce® 7950 GX2 Graphics Card

New NVIDIA® GeForce 7950 GX2 Resets Performance Bar for Single Graphics Cards

SANTA CLARA, CA—JUNE 5, 2006—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor technologies, today announced the new NVIDIA® GeForce 7950 GX2, the world’s fastest graphics card , is available immediately from the Company’s add-in card partners. The GeForce 7950 GX2 performs as much as 72% faster than the leading single graphics processing unit (GPU) graphics cards on the market today by harnessing the power of two GeForce 7950 GPUs on one card.

“The GeForce 7950 GX2 is a great card for the gamer who’s looking for the absolute best performance in a single graphics card solution,” said Ujesh Desai, general manager of desktop GPUs at NVIDIA. “With that kind of power gamers can crank up their screen resolution to an unbelievable 2560x1600 for an extreme high definition gaming experience.”

GeForce 7950 GX2 delivers a powerful feature set that includes:

  • Two high-performance GPUs working simultaneously on a single card—dramatically raising the bar for single-card performance
  • 48 pixel pipes, 16 vertex shaders, 76.8 GB per second of memory bandwidth and 24 billion texels per second of fill rate on a single card
  • 1GB of fast GDDR3 video memory on a single card
  • Dual dual-link DVI support— for high-definition, widescreen flat panel displays that support resolutions up to 2560x1600 for an ultra-realistic HD gaming experience
  • Hardware accelerated H.264 support through NVIDIA PureVideo™ technology—the combination of HD video processors and software delivers a HD home-theater quality video experience to the PC.
  • High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) capable
  • Support for Quad NVIDIA SLI technology—allows NVIDIA authorised system builders to combine the power of two GeForce 7950 GX2 graphics cards to dramatically increase graphics horsepower.

NVIDIA SLI technology is a revolutionary platform innovation that allows users to intelligently scale graphics performance by combining multiple NVIDIA graphics solutions in a single system with an NVIDIA nForce SLI MCP-based motherboard. By using SLI technology, authorised system builders can put two GeForce 7950 GX2 graphics cards to work in parallel, harnessing the power of four GPUs to deliver extreme HD resolutions, including an incredible 2560x1600, while still maintaining ultra smooth frame rates, stunning visuals and pristine image quality for an immersive gaming experience.

GeForce 7950 GX2 graphics cards are immediately available from leading add-in card manufacturers, e-tailers, and system builders. For information on where to buy GeForce 7950 GX2 graphics boards, please visit //
