New NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500M Solution Powers Graphics Performance in Dell Precision M90 Mobile Workstations for Design, Digital Content Creation, and Visualization

SANTA CLARA, CA—December 5, 2006—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in graphics processors, today announced the NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500M, a high-performing mobile workstation graphics solution for CAD, Digital Content Creation, and Scientific Visualization.

Engineered to deliver unprecedented performance for accelerated workflow and shortened design cycles, the Quadro FX 3500M with support for OpenGL and DirectX, offers up to 512MB G-DDR3 memory, a 256-bit memory interface, up to 38.4GB/s memory bandwidth, and up to 2GB/s pixel read back. The Quadro FX 3500M includes adaptive power management tools designed to provide performance scalability and visualization of extensive datasets with extremely high image quality.

This new Quadro FX graphics solution is available immediately as an option on the award-winning Dell Precision™ M90 system. The Dell Precision M90 is one of the most powerful mobile workstation solutions ever offered by Dell, delivering the performance and features on-the-go Engineers, Artists, and Professionals demand in an ISV-certified mobile platform.

“As the leading mobile workstation provider worldwide,1 Dell understands best-in class-performance is a priority for workstation customers, because it translates directly to improved productivity,” said Antonio Julio, director, Dell Precision workstations. “Teaming with NVIDIA to offer the next-generation professional-class graphics solution enables us to design a mobile platform that truly delivers desktop-class performance.”

NVIDIA Quadro FX mobile solutions offer the same features found in industry-leading NVIDIA workstation solutions for desktop-based professional workstations, including exclusive features such as 12-bit sub-pixel precision, and full 32-bit floating point precision, as well as a host of unequaled capabilities that NVIDIA Quadro desktop-based users have simply become accustomed to.

“NVIDIA continues to raise the bar for visual graphics excellence for 3D artists everywhere. The speed and performance of the Quadro FX 3500M for the new Dell Precision M90 mobile workstations matches the performance of a desktop, which for our SOFTIMAGE®|XSI® users, offers a very compelling desktop replacement,” said Mark Schoennagel, 3D Evangelist for Softimage Co., a subsidiary of Avid Technology, Inc. “We recently unveiled Softimage XSI 6 software, built on our unique Gigapolygon core, that specifically capitalizes on working with high-polygon count 3D models in a 64-bit environment, and NVIDIA with DELL offer the hardware that allows our customers to create amazing 3D artistic creations.”

The Dell Precision M90 features Intel® Core 2™ Duo processors, large memory configurations, expansive 17-inch displays, and can be configured with 32- or 64-bit Microsoft® Windows® XP Professional. For more product information, pricing, and availability visit
