“The tour is a great opportunity for CompUSA customers in Dallas to experience firsthand the capabilities of the latest graphics processor,” said Brian Woods, executive vice president and general merchandising manager at CompUSA. “Gamers and computer enthusiasts expect CompUSA to carry the latest in new computer technology, and NIVIDIA is helping us deliver on that promise.”

NVIDIA GeForce graphics processing units (GPUs) provide a superior computing experience by offloading graphics processing duties from the CPU. NVIDIA GPUs enhance performance and provide a significantly better experience in graphics intensive tasks such as viewing and editing photos and video, playing games, and using processor-intensive applications such as Google Earth or Adobe Acrobat. NVIDIA GPUs are also essential for accelerating the Windows Vista experience by offering an enriched 3D user interface, increased productivity, vibrant photos, smooth, high-definition videos, and realistic games.

“We’re eager to show our latest flagship technologies to computer users and gaming enthusiasts,” said Ujesh Desai, general manager of desktop GPUs at NVIDIA. “NVIDIA graphics deliver a powerfully immersive gaming experience as well as an extraordinary high-definition movie experience. People are going to be blown away when they see what our new motherboard and graphics processors can do.”
