NVIDIA Corp. said the popularity of its core-logic aimed to support the company's multi-GPU technology had been growing rapidly. This may indicate that the firm's position in the graphics processors market has also improved.
The Santa Clara, California-based chipset designer said it had shipped 750 thousand of its nForce4 SLI core-logic components for AMD Athlon 64 systems. The figure is up significantly from about 350 thousand of appropriate units proclaimed to be supplied to mainboard partners by early March, 2005. By mid-February, 2005, NVIDIA Corp. had shipped approximately 1 million of its nForce4 chips in total.
According to the company's probes in March, 80% of systems equipped with mainboards based on the nForce4 SLI actually featured two graphics cards. Furthermore, the most successful Multi-GPU configuration on the market was relatively expensive dual NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT setup, which was installed in the majority of the SLI-enabled systems, according to NVIDIA.
