NVIDIA Announces Broad nForce Compatibility & Support From Memory Suppliers

(December 06, 2001)
NVIDIA Corporation announced that memory suppliers have completed validation and compatibility testing of a broad array of DDR memory modules on the company's nForce Platform Processing Architecture. NVIDIA established an industry milestone by developing the first PC platform - nForce -to utilize a 128-bit Double Data Rate (DDR) Synchronous (SDRAM) memory architecture for both system and graphics memory. nForce's TwinBank Memory Architecture paired with 128- bit DDR SDRAM provides the highest memory bandwidth and performance on a desktop PC.

NVIDIA enables customers to choose from a broad selection of DDR modules thoroughly and specifically tested for nForce compatibility from leading memory manufacturers and module suppliers including, but not limited to: Micron Technology, Samsung Semiconductor, Hynix Semiconductor, Infineon Technologies, Kingston Technology, Smart Modular Technologies, Crucial Technology and PNY Technologies.


"NVIDIA's goal is to deliver the industry's highest-performing system and graphics performance on any platform," said Dan Vivoli, vice president of marketing at NVIDIA. "Only with the powerful combination of DDR memory and NVIDIA's TwinBank memory architecture can the power of NVIDIA's nForce Platform Processors truly be unleashed."

NVIDIA selected Computer Memory Test Labs (CMTL) and Advanced Validation Labs (AVL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Kingston Technologies, to perform future compatibility tests on DDR modules for the nForce platform. Compatibility testing is designed to enable the widespread availability of cost-effective and reliable DDR modules to customers worldwide. nForce- compatible memory modules will be listed on the NVIDIA, CMTL and AVL Web sites in a format that allows customers easy access to DDR memory modules tested specifically for the nForce platform.

"Micron is a leader in DDR SDRAM technology and production, and NVIDIA's nForce 128-bit TwinBank Memory Architecture with DDR memory is an ideal platform needed for PCs to take the next major leap forward in performance," stated Mike Seibert, Strategic Marketing Manager, Computing and Consumer Group at Micron Technology.

"DDR SDRAM is an evolutionary, cost effective, high performance system memory solution that when paired with NVIDIA's groundbreaking nForce IGP's TwinBank Memory Architecture eliminates system memory as a bottleneck," stated Farhad Tabrizi, vice president of worldwide memory marketing at Hynix Semiconductor. "By providing a 128-bit wide DDR 266MHz memory access path, NVIDIA created a way to dramatically improve system and graphics performance."
