NVIDIA Mobile GPUs Support New Intel® Centrino™ Mobile Technology Platform

Notebooks Featuring New PCI Express Chipset and GeForce Go 6 Currently Shipping

LONDON — NOVember 19th, 2004 — NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), a worldwide leader in graphics and digital media processors, today announced that the award-winning GeForce™ Go 6 series supports the new Intel® Centrino™ mobile platform (codenamed Sonoma), taking full advantage of the new, improved PCI Express architecture.

NVIDIA announced earlier this month that the first notebooks to implement the NVIDIA® GeForce Go 6 series and the newest in Intel Centrino mobile technology, with support for PCI Express are the Sony Vaio FS and Vaio S. The Sony FS Series has already received several industry accolades including the “Best of CES 2005” award from Laptop magazine. These notebooks are currently shipping, with product announcements from other major OEMs to follow shortly.

“Intel is clearly one of our most valuable partners in the mobile computing space,” said Rob Csongor, general manager of mobile products for NVIDIA. “The NVIDIA GeForce 6 Go series is an excellent complement to the Intel’s new Centrino mobile technology. Innovations such as NVIDIA’s TurboCache technology and MXM will fully expose the bi-directional functionality of PCI Express for notebooks that put competing systems to shame.”

The GeForce Go 6 Series of GPUs offers a variety of multimedia features for mainstream notebooks, including the industry’s only solution compatible with the latest version of Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 and PureVideo technology, the industry’s only embedded video processor for HD multimedia content. Intel Centrino mobile technology, featuring integrated wireless connectivity with IEEE 802.11a/b/g networks, will provide the processing power and wireless connectivity for these notebooks.
