Now Available for Download on NVIDIA Web Site
SINGAPORE -- JULY 29, 2004 -- NVIDIA Corporation, the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, today announced availability of a new 64-bit demonstration for NVIDIA nForce™3- and AMD Athlon™ 64 processor-based PCs and notebooks. The highly-graphical 3D demo portrays a liquid-like dancer who moves and grooves in a surreal disco world, employing specialised 64-bit instructions that respond to real-time user intervention and music MP3s.
The 3D dancer was originally created as a 32-bit technology demonstration. NVIDIA ported the software code to demonstrate the increased performance offered by the advanced 64-bit processing architecture of the AMD Athlon 64 processor. Internal tests by NVIDIA show the new version outperforms the 32-bit version by more than 27 percent in comparable computing environments. Tests were conducted using an NVIDIA nForce3-based motherboard, an AMD Athlon 64 processor, an NVIDIA GeForce™ 6800 GT graphics processing unit, and Microsoft® Windows® XP 64-bit v.1195.
"NVIDIA and AMD have a shared vision: to promote immersive, experiential, and compelling graphics that were not possible with 32-bit memory limitations," said Marty Seyer, vice president and general manager, AMD’s Microprocessor Business Unit, Computation Products Group. "The AMD64 platform enables best-in-class performance and provides computer experiences that were never possible before. Users who want a more exciting computing experience should definitely get an AMD Athlon 64 processor-based system."
"AMD64 technology provides customers with a combination of compatibility and performance that pushes the limits of the x86 architecture," added K B Ng, marketing director at NVIDIA Asia Pacific. "Our new 64-bit demo demonstrates some of the advantages that come with optimisation, such as improved physics and fluid realism."
NVIDIA previously released drivers to support the Microsoft® Windows® XP 64-bit Edition for Extended Systems beta operating system, and plans to continue to develop new hardware technologies that can harness the power that true AMD64 platforms provide for desktop, workstation, and server environments. NVIDIA’s driver development is 100% written for true 64-bit platforms. Drivers run on the 64-bit code paths for all APIs and are optimized for the additional memory space of AMD64 systems.
AMD64 evolves the industry-standard 32-bit x86 architecture to support the demanding 64-bit environment that will enable future generations of computer functionality and productivity. AMD designed the AMD64 platform to allow end users to enjoy reliable, best-in-class performance on the 32-bit software they own today while preparing for a seamless transition to high-performance 64-bit applications. The AMD64 architecture also enables a more secure computing environment by integrating technology that can take advantage of advanced anti-virus features in upcoming software. Since the introduction of the AMD64 architecture in 2003, the AMD Opteron™ processor for servers and workstations and the AMD Athlon™ 64 processors for desktop and notebook computers have earned more than 45 awards for innovation and performance and the support of more than 2,000 OEMs, hardware and software developers, system builders, and distributors.
