Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 28, 2001

NVIDIA(R) Corporation (Nasdaq:NVDA) announced today that NVIDIA Quadro(TM)2 Pro graphics solutions will be used in Hewlett-Packard Company's line of professional workstations based on the Intel(R) Itanium(TM) processor.

The Quadro2 Pro is NVIDIA's fastest workstation solution, delivering unprecedented 3D and 2D performance for the engineering professional. The Quadro2 Pro includes a hardware antialiased line engine, 6.4GB/sec. bandwidth enabling work in fully textured mode while achieving real-time frame rates, and a 64MB unified frame buffer -- providing ample room for high-resolution, 32bpp textures. With 1.0G pixels/sec. rendering power and 31M triangles/sec. geometry processing power, the Quadro2 Pro is an ideal choice for any design environment.

"NVIDIA works with industry leaders, including HP, to define the future of graphics computing," stated Jeff Fisher, vice president of sales at NVIDIA. "HP's decision to offer the Quadro2 Pro in their next-generation workstations demonstrates NVIDIA's ability to rapidly deliver optimizations that take advantage of the leading-edge technology introduced by the Intel Itanium processor."

"HP workstations equipped with NVIDIA GPUs embody the cutting-edge of graphics technology," stated Larry Mahoney, Itanium-based workstations product manager, HP Technical Computing Division. "NVIDIA's products are an excellent choice for HP's Itanium-based workstations because of the Quadro2 Pro's many Itanium-specific optimizations and strong compatibility."

The Quadro2 Pro features the NVIDIA unified driver architecture (UDA), which allows forward-and-backward as well as top-to-bottom compatibility, greatly reducing support costs by simplifying system maintenance. NVIDIA's UDA has been optimized to take advantage of the many new features introduced by the Intel Itanium processor, including support for 64-bit memory addressability and the ability to take advantage of Intel's Explicitly Parallel Instruction Computing (EPIC) technology.
