NVIDIA Introduces New GeForce 6200 with TurboCache

NVIDIA TurboCache Technology Redefines PC Graphics Performance at Value Price Points

SANTA CLARA, CA—DECEMBER 15, 2004—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), a worldwide leader in graphics and digital media processors, today introduced the NVIDIA® GeForce™ 6200 graphics processing unit (GPU) with TurboCache™ technology.

NVIDIA TurboCache is a new, patented hardware and software technology, which allows a GPU to render directly to system memory, instead of using local memory on the graphics card. NVIDIA TurboCache technology lowers on-board memory requirements, enabling system builders to deliver PCs with more feature-rich GPUs and offer their customers better graphics performance and advanced capabilities previously unattainable at value prices.

“Customers in the value segment previously have had to settle for technology that was one generation behind the cutting edge, high-end GPUs,” said Ujesh Desai, general manger of desktop graphics for NVIDIA. “For the first time ever, NVIDIA TurboCache will deliver the award-winning feature set found on current-generation high-end GPUs to the value segment of the PC market.”

NVIDIA has re-architected the 3D graphics pipeline for the GeForce 6200 GPU with TurboCache to allow direct rendering from the GPU to system memory by leveraging the bi-directional PCI Express bandwidth. The TurboCache Manager dynamically allocates memory for maximum system performance while intelligent software algorithms maximize application performance.

The GeForce 6200 GPUs with TurboCache offer best-in-class performance in the value segment¹ by taking the GeForce 6 Series graphics architecture, which has been described as the most advanced in the world, top-to-bottom in the NVIDIA product line-up. GeForce 6200 GPUs with TurboCache are the only graphics processors in the value segment that:

  • Support Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 Shader Model 3.0, which is being used to develop ultra-realistic, next-generation DirectX 9.0 games
  • Feature NVIDIA PureVideo™ technology, a combination of hardware and software that brings consumer electronics-quality video to the PC
  • Are backed by the NVIDIA ForceWare™ software suite and NVIDIA Unified Driver Architecture (UDA), ensuring industry-renowned compatibility and reliability for a great user experience

GeForce 6200 GPUs with TurboCache are shipping now and graphics cards are anticipated to be available from leading add-in card manufacturers and in systems from leading PC OEMs in January 2005. For additional details and a list of partners, please visit http://www.nvidia.com.
