Demonstrating strong consumer demand and excitement for its newest GPU, NVIDIA announced today that it has raised $8000 from the sale of its GeForce4 Ti 4600 GPU in a fund auction held on eBay, to raise funds for the Childrens Health Council. The eBay auction winners are among the first consumers to own the powerful GeForce4 Ti GPU, announced by NVIDIA last month.
"We are extremely pleased to see our products being so well-received," said Dan Vivoli, vice president of marketing at NVIDIA. "We watched this auction with excitement and are delighted be able to raise funds for such a good cause."
Three limited-edition charity packs featuring the GeForce4 Ti 4600 were auctioned off, each raising winning bids of $2800, $2700 and $2500 – selling prices seven times higher than the average retail price. Each pack included a GeForce4 Ti 4600 add-in card, a carrying case autographed by NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun-Huang, a demo CD and t-shirt.
