FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW (CES)—LAS VEGAS, NV—JANUARY 05, 2006—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) took its acclaimed SLI technology to a new level today by introducing support for the industry's first ever Quad SLI-certified PC. Delivering the most extreme high definition gaming experience available on the PC, Quad SLI features four of NVIDIA's flagship GeForce® 7800 GTX GPUs with an NVIDIA nForce®4 SLI X16 motherboard. This revolutionary technology was introduced today on the forthcoming Dell XPS 600 Renegade, as part of a keynote presentation by Michael Dell at CES in Las Vegas, NV.

John Medica, senior vice president, Product Group at Dell, stated: "Our demonstration of the first Quad SLI PC with NVIDIA is a major technology innovation, that when combined with the Dell XPS 600 Renegade and the new Dell 30-inch flat panel makes true high definition gaming a reality."

NVIDIA Quad SLI technology allows consumers to:

* Run today's hottest games at extreme high definition (HD) resolutions-including an unbelievable 2560x1600 -- at silky smooth frame rates


* Crank up their image quality with 32x antialiasing and 16x anisotropic filtering


* Maximize their shader and texture settings for a truly immersive gaming experience

"Today's demonstration of the new Dell XPS 600 Renegade with our Quad SLI technology takes gaming to new levels," said Dan Vivoli, executive vice president of marketing at NVIDIA. "The ability to run today's hottest titles in extreme HD resolutions with all the eye candy turned on is absolutely amazing. Strap yourself in, because you are in for the ride of your life."

In addition, NVIDIA announced that Dell will be shipping the award-winning NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX 512 in the Dell XPS 600 PC.

As part of this technology demonstration, the Dell XPS 600 Renegade Quad SLI PC will be on display in the Dell booth (South Hall # 36521) and NVIDIA booth (South Hall #36200) at CES 2006, January 5-8th, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

i think it's 16x AA, and 32x AF, not the other way around. And even at that, you can't notice quality improvement for anything over 2x AA, especially if you are playing on a 42" monitor or something...

QUAD SLI TECHNOLOGY.. Get the Heck out of here....

Take a Quad SLI Mobo and add (4) Dual ASUS 7800GT's...
(8) GPU's... COME ON!!!!! This crap is getting way out of hand now...

I can see "may-be" with a (30" to 42") LCD or PLASMA HDTV. TO play like a FEAR or COD2 or BF2 or UT2k7...

But come on... That's not silly... It's just plan fing STUPID!

The real kicker is that they were showcasing it with DELL!!!!... That's a freakin' joke...

PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE MONEY TO HAVE A SYSTEM LIKE THAT, CAN BUILD IT THEMSELVES... MICHAEL DELL, STICK TO MAKING YOUR GARBAGE PC'S. STAY OUT OF THE GAMING SECTOR.... IT PROBABLY HAS AN INTEL IN IT ANYWAY...

I second that. This is stupid and even if one were to play with 16xAA at whatever x 1600, it would lag like ****. no matter what game it is. and it was stated before, at resolutions like that, you wouldn't notice the difference between 4x and 16x.

This just makes me hate dell even more.
