nVidia introduces nForce

[[Description]]
nVidia this morning introduced its new nForce Platform Processing Architecture at the Computex tradeshow in Taiwan.

The nForce™ Integrated Graphics Processor (IGP), part of the revolutionary nForce Platform Processing Architecture, redefines system and graphics performance for the PC platform. At its core is an integrated GeForce2 GPU delivering per-pixel shading via the NVIDIA Shading Rasterizer and second-generation transform and lighting for an uncompromised 3D visual experience. In addition, the IGP features the TwinBank™ Memory Architecture for efficient memory processing, a Dynamic Adaptive Speculative Pre-processor™ (DASP) to help boost CPU performance, and the AMD® HyperTransport™-a high-performance I/O bus interface.

"Modern PC's are being used in ways the original PC was never designed for. 3D graphics, streaming video, complex audio and high speed networking are commonplace today and put tremendous stress on PC system architecture," stated Jon Peddie, president of Jon Peddie Associates, a leading market research firm. "Unfortunately, today's PC with its aging form-factors and legacy constraints simply can't handle these demands efficiently. NVIDIA's new nForce architecture, has clearly been designed around a series of innovative technologies, providing users with a powerful platform designed for the 21st century."

To bridge the gap between the expectations of today's users and the limitations of current and future technologies, and to deliver unmatched system performance, it was necessary for NVIDIA to depart from the traditional "Northbridge/Southbridge" chipset architectures to create an entirely new class of PC platform.

[[Key Features]]

nForce Platform Processing Architecture
Comprised of the nForce IGP and the nForce MCP, the nForce Platform Processing Architecture addresses the needs of today's most demanding users-all of whom expect unmatched system and memory performance, stunning 3D graphics, awesome 3D audio, and fast broadband and networking connections. In order to achieve this previously unattainable level of performance, NVIDIA was forced to depart from "traditional" PC platforms and create an entirely new architecture. The nForce architecture includes: a distributed platform processing design that frees up the CPU for other tasks; patent-pending system, memory, and networking technologies for the most efficient processing and performance; integrated 3D graphics and 3D audio.

TwinBank Memory Architecture
Delivers unprecedented 3D positional audio and DirectX 8.0-compatible performance to the PC platform. Provides real-time processing of up to 256-simultaneous stereo audio streams, or 64 3D and 192 simultaneous audio streams.

Dynamic Adaptive Speculative Pre-processor (DASP)
NVIDIA's patent-pending isochronous data transport system, providing uninterrupted data streaming for superior networking and broadband communications. StreamThru assists in making streaming video and audio smoother and jitter-free.

Hmm, is there anybody left to challenge the bold and inovative steps nvidia have taken since 3d cards first hit the scene. Put any nvidia card with an AMD processor and you get the backbone for a pretty cheap monster machine.

God this card is out of date wtf u all talking about geforce 3 and sh!t.. it sucks.. go to here.. the most powerful video card is "Oxygen" 128mb ram 256-bit graphic not like some baby 64-bit 128-bit.. and is not $550 is $1999.00 for this shit.. much more better then some girly video card like nvidia.. all your nvidia base are Oxygen... Here is where u could see it [url removed]

3Dlabs graphics silicon has already been proven in a wide range of mission-critical applications by customers such as Barco, British Aerospace, Dy4, Kaiser Electronics, Radstone and the U-2 spy plane in-c**kpit display developed by Lockheed Martin/Skunkworks in Los Angeles, CA. Projects such as the Lockheed Martin U-2 in-c**kpit display system demand the ultimate in quality and reliability and performance. Anyone developing embedded applications with advanced real-time graphics requirements can rely on the combination of 3Dlabs' silicon and Seaweed Systems' drivers.
