    <p align="center">NVIDIA Builds On Record Sales Performance For The Eleventh Consecutive Month
    NVIDIA-based solutions remain the consumer's premier choice at UK retail
    </p>THEALE, READING - DECEMBER 10th, 2003 -
    NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, today announced that it continues to enjoy record market share performance in the UK as shown by the ChartTrack report for November.

    The latest results show that NVIDIA has reinforced its position as the market leader of visual computing technology by some margin over competitors, further reinforcing the company's reputation as the premier choice for consumers. From November's figures, the company now enjoys an 81 per cent share of the top 30 cards on the market (through Chart Track panel retailers) with its nearest competitors reaching 18 per cent and 1 per cent respectively.

    Furthermore, NVIDIA-based products occupy the top eight slots in the Top Ten graphics cards sold in the month of November through Chart Track panel retailers. PNY Technologies have taken the top three positions with their Verto GeForce FX 5200 128Mb PCI, Verto GeForce2 MX400 64Mb PCI and Verto GeForce 4 MX440 AGP 64Mb DDR SDRAM respectively.

    "Our performance up to Christmas has been the product of a great deal of focus and commitment to our retail programmes," said Roy Taylor, sales director EMEA at NVIDIA. "'The Way It's Meant To Be Played' campaign continues to be a complete success and our latest market share results are a testimony to all the hard work of the publishers, retailers and partners that have supported it. We are delighted."

    NVIDIA's 'The Way It's Meant To Be Played' (TWIMTBP) campaign has become a key driving force in the company's success. The combination of deploying experienced developer and marketing support has helped achieve the programme's key objective of supplying a reliable and stable console-like experience for the consumer on their home PC.

    Is there ANY truth to that? It sounds like the big, cheesy N is taking some serious liberties with the truth! :shock:

    You just know these results are not representative of anything whatsoever when the top two selling video cards in this list are PCI :) Somehow this is very skewed.

    I expect these figures are taken from stores in the UK like PCWorld and Currys. These seem to mainly sell NVidia cards, if I remember correctly and at ludicrously high prices - you're talking £ 150 for a GF4MX card or something similarly ridiculous!

    This is true if TWIMTBP is slowly and without full hardware support. Look at the top selling graphics cards these probably aren't for gaming machines.

    Low end is always the biggest sellers, so I don't see any real surprise here. ATi firmly established itself with the 9700 and has been concentrating on the performance sector while letting the low end lag.

    Their integrated chipsets I think will be very popular, as they provide excellent comparative performance and ends up being much cheaper for OEM's than tossing on a MX card of some variant. Meanwhile they're likely to be priced competitively to Intel's integrated solutions while offering staggeringly better graphical performance.

    But in the meanwhile, the 5200 (and nVidia in general) has more mindshare in the value segment, as well as having more from a marketing standpoint. (DX9, woooo!) And the MX's are still the "cheap, nice, and easy" solutions that many OEM's have been doing for years, and likely have no real reason to switch right now as cost is their ultimate concern, rather than cost-balancing the performance of the various value cards.

    Maybe the 9600SE will chip away a bit as well, since it can tap the mid-range performance acceptance and offer DX9 as well (maybe a PLAYABLE form of it?), but I don't really know its relative price and performance yet.
