nVvidia officialy announced that the Company's newest mobile graphics processing unit (GPU), the NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5700, will soon be offered in the leading notebooks from manufacturers worldwide, including: Alienware, Compal, FIC, Toshiba's Digital Products Division, Quanta, Uniwill and others to be announced later.

This worldwide endorsement of the GeForce FX Go5700 is an nVidia show of industry strength and in-part, an attempt to strengthen confidence in nVidia products, confidence which has been shaken by a variety of desktop incidents. nVidia aim to re-affirm their position in the market which has been questioned by ATI, in the desktop field and, most recently, by Futuremark in its ongoing unofficial dispute with the company.

When NVIDIA introduced the original GeForce FX Go series just over six months ago, notebook manufacturers responded by creating truly innovative products ranging from media center machines with beautiful 17-inch displays, to the first true gaming notebook, said Jeff Fisher, executive vice president of worldwide sales at NVIDIA. NVIDIA's strong relationships with the world's leading OEMs and ODMs have been critical in the delivery of our technology in the most innovative notebook products available. We are very excited with the new notebooks they will build around the GeForce FX Go5700.

Toshiba is intensely focused on providing our customers the ultimate multimedia performance whether at home watching DVD movies or at the office creating interactive presentations, said Carl Pinto, director of product marketing, Toshiba's Digital Products Division, a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. Our mobile computing expertise combined with the NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5700 GPU sets a new standard in 3D graphics and video quality that our customers can enjoy in any environment.

Alienware customers can always expect the latest graphics technology powering our high-performance gaming systems, said Frank Azor, executive vice president for Alienware Corporation. As a launch partner for the GeForce FX Go5700 mobile graphics module, Alienware is delivering the most technologically advanced mobile GPU available and remains committed to offering the best performing components available in all Alienware systems.

Featuring the highest quality graphics performance available on a notebook PC, high quality video and the many software features and reliability of all NVIDIA products, the GeForce FX Go5700 powers the industry's most complete feature set for mobile consumer entertainment.

Today, the GeForce FX Go5700 is shipping to OEMs and ODMs worldwide, with production quantities available in December. Systems based on the GeForce FX Go5700 are expected to be available to end users in Q1 2004.
