Business Editors, High Tech Writers

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 6, 2001

Genesis Microchip (Nasdaq:GNSS) -- a leader in LCD monitor image-processing technology -- today acknowledged eight of the 13 monitors recently reviewed by PC Magazine incorporate Genesis chips.

The Feb. 6, 2001 issue of PC Magazine reviewed "13 leading LCDs that offer crisp, clear images." The monitors were evaluated for text, graphics and video quality, features, price and "ease of configuration." Genesis LCD controller chips can be found in the monitors from Acer, Dell, Envision, IBM, NEC, Philips, Samsung and Sony.

The Samsung SyncMaster 150T monitor was selected as "Editors' Choice," by offering excellent image quality and other features, all at a reasonable cost.

"Genesis Display Perfection" single-chip LCD solutions provide critical features such as image scaling, DVI receivers, analog-to-digital conversion, High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP), advanced onscreen display control and more, depending on the chip.

"We were wonderfully surprised to find our chips in eight of these 13 superior monitors," said Anders Frisk, Genesis Microchip's Vice President of Marketing. "Since many brand-name monitor companies buy the display sub-systems from smaller vendors (Genesis customers), occasionally we're not certain who's using our chips where. Our sales network insists the eight monitors all use our chips and we're intensely proud of that."

The company's leading-edge LCD controllers serve all segments of the LCD monitor market: analog, digital and dual (both analog and digital) interfaces. The company's current product line includes the gmZAN1 controller for analog-interface monitors as well as the gm3020 chip with its celebrated "Ultra-Reliable DVI" receiver for the digital-interface market. Genesis also boasts three dual-interface parts: the recently announced gm5010 chip, targeting the mainstream XGA market, the widely successful gm5020 targeting resolutions up to SXGA, and the gm5060 targeting the ultra-high resolution UXGA market. Genesis has the optimal solution for all high-volume mass market segments of the LCD monitor market.
