-Systems based on AMD Athlon and AMD Duron™ processor family products and NVIDIA nForce2 Platform Processors expected to offer increased memory bandwidth and connectivity, and exceptional graphics performance-
SUNNYVALE, CA -- July 16, 2002 --AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced support for NVIDIA® nForce2 - NVIDIA’s upcoming family of highly integrated core-logic platform processors. NVIDIA nForce2 Platform Processors will be optimized for systems with AMD Athlon™ XP and AMD Duron™ processors.
Enterprise and individual customers can expect to benefit from an AMD and NVIDIA nForce2 platform. High-speed PC3200 DDR memory will provide enterprise customers optimized execution of multi-threaded, mission-critical applications, and the 128-bit architecture can reduce memory latency enabling faster system and content creation performance. Individual users can expect to realize exceptional audio and gaming performance with real-time audio encoding of up to 256 simultaneous audio streams, and outstanding graphics and streaming audio and video with NVIDIA StreamThru™ technology featuring HyperTransport™ technology.
“The exceptional performance achieved by coupling the latest AMD Athlon and AMD Duron processor technologies with the upcoming NVIDIA nForce2 Platform Processors is continued proof that significant performance breakthroughs can be achieved using open, industry standards,” said Rich Heye, vice president platform engineering and infrastructure, Computation Products Group, AMD. “With support for both AGP-8X and HyperTransport technology, the AMD and NVIDIA platform will deliver fast and efficient processing power and overall system performance.”
“AMD processors provide the best complement to our new highly integrated nForce2 Platform Processors,” said Drew Henry, senior director of platform product management at NVIDIA. “We have worked closely with AMD to fine-tune our engineering designs to ensure that nForce2 Platform Processors take full advantage of the architectural innovations of AMD’s desktop processors.”
Demonstrations of systems based on AMD and NVIDIA nForce2 Platform Processors will be available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Platform Conference, being held today and tomorrow at the Silicon Valley Conference Center in San Jose, CA.
