COMPLETE HARDWARE UPGRADE SOLUTION FOR WINDOWS VISTA AVAILABLE
ONLY FROM PNY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.
Simple Hardware Upgrades Elevate the Vista Premium Experience on
LAS VEGAS – January 8, 2007 – PNY Technologies Inc. announced
today at CES 2007 that it is the only company to provide a complete upgrade
solution for home PC users adopting the new Windows® Vista™ operating system.
According to Nicholas Mauro, senior marketing manager for PNY
Technologies, "There is a misconception that only a new computer can run Windows
Vista, which is simply not true. This new operating system is the first to be
graphics based. This means, with the right hardware support, it will take full
advantage of the graphics capabilities of your computer."
A Windows Vista Premium experience requires a DirectX® 9
compatible graphics card, 1GB of additional RAM and a USB flash drive enhanced
for Windows ReadyBoost™. Instead of purchasing a whole new PC, early adopters can
purchase the following Vista Premium upgrade components from PNY Technologies:
PNY Technologies Verto® 6 or 7 Series
Graphics Cards allow Windows Vista users to experience vibrant
graphics plus improved 3D capabilities. In addition to enhanced visual
quality, the PC will run faster and applications will look better without
using up too many of the computer system’s resources. Moreover, PNY’s graphics
cards feature DirectX 9 capability and 256MB of graphics memory to take
advantage of the Vista Aero interface.
Optima™ 1GB and 2GB Memory Upgrades allow Windows Vista users to
experience enhanced performance using Vista’s new explorers, real-time
thumbnail previews and 3D task switching features. PNY’s memory upgrades are
available for DDR and DDR2 platforms.
• PNY Technologies Optima™ Pro Series
USB Flash Drives are the ultimate
data storage solution to capture, store, and share digital images, music,
documents and games on PCs running Windows Vista. Enhanced for Windows
ReadyBoost acceleration, PNY’s Optima Pro Series USB Flash Drives supplement
the PC’s internal memory. Ideal for Windows multi-tasking, ReadyBoost capable
drives allow software applications to launch quicker especially when there are
already several applications running.
Mauro added, "With a few simple upgrades, your PC will be able to
handle Vista’s enhanced user productivity, quicker load times and multi-media
applications. You’ll only need a new graphics card, a memory upgrade and for
even greater performance—a USB flash drive enhanced for Windows ReadyBoost."
