Nvidia ships 100 million GPUs

Graphics chip maker Nvidia Corp. announced Tuesday that it's shipped more than 100 million graphics processors -- a milestone which was achieved in less than five years.

NVIDIA first began shipping graphics processors in 1996. In 2001, Apple Computer Inc. began to ship Power Mac G4s with graphic cards based on NVIDIA's GeForce2 MX processor as standard issue across the line. GeForce3-based cards were also offered as a build-to-order option. At Macworld Expo in San Francisco last month, Apple made GeForce2 MX standard issue on new flat-panel iMacs. Last week the company announced its revamped Power Mac G4 line, which features NVIDIA's new GeForce4 MX graphics technology on two models. Today, Apple announced that the GeForce4 Titanium will be available on Power Mac G4s as well.

NVIDIA president and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang called his company "a universally recognized technology innovator" and said that NVIDIA is a market leader in its field. "By delivering a top-to-bottom product family in multiple markets and leveraging our Unified Driver Architecture, NVIDIA has helped 3D graphics become a mass-market medium," said Huang.

The company cites Apple, Compaq Computer Corp., Dell Computer Corp., Hewlett-Packard Co., Microsoft Corp. and others as OEM customers of its products.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
