NIVDIA today released a new serie of GeForce FX video cards supporting PCI Express. Basically their are four new PCI Express cards from NVIDIA:

  • The GeForce PCX 5950 which is a PCI Express version of the GeForce FX 5950.
  • The GeForce PCX 5750 based on the GeForce FX 5700,
  • The GeForce PCX 5300 which is a GeForce FX 5200,
  • And the GeForce PCX 4300 which is a PCI Express version of the GeForce MX 4000.
    In addition, last week in Taipei, Taiwan, NVIDIA validated its family of GeForce PCX products with the industry’s top motherboard, chipset, and BIOS vendors. NVIDIA has already shipped more than 1,000 PCI Express boards to customers and partners.

    As a Gold Sponsor of the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) Spring 2004, NVIDIA is showcasing the results of their collaborative engineering efforts with industry players, such as Intel. NVIDIA and Intel processors form the foundation for many PCs, notebooks, workstations, gaming systems, media centers, and handheld devices being produced worldwide, and they are all on display at IDF. Intel and companies like NVIDIA enjoy a long-standing collaborative relationship with the common goal of driving progress in PC technology, including transitioning the PC industry to an advanced PC bus architecture, PCI Express. Since the graphics processing unit (GPU) has the largest bandwidth demand of all the PC subsystems, NVIDIA has been a key contributor to the joint definition, development, and deployment of PCI Express solutions. NVIDIA also serves as a member of PCI-SIG, the industry organization that owns the PCI Express specification.
    The first PCI Express products are expected to become available in the second half of 2004 from the following manufacturers: Albatron, AOpen, Anextek, Asus, Chaintech, Gainward, Gigabyte, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, Pine, XFX, Prolink and Sparkle.
