    NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, today announced that Intel Corporation will be using NVIDIA’s top-to-bottom family of PCI Express™ graphics processing units (GPUs), as part of Intel’s PCI Express-enabled chipset launch programmes. Intel has purchased several thousand NVIDIA PCI Express-enabled GPUs which Intel will be using for:
    • Platform level testing

    NVIDIA is pleased to be working hand-in-hand with Intel’s launch teams to bring the benefits of PCI Express-enabled systems to end users.
