VisionTek First To Market With Xtasy(tm) 3D Graphics Accelerators Powered By New Titanium(tm) GPUs from NVIDI


GURNEE, Ill. - October 1, 2001 - VisionTek, a leading provider of advanced graphics and memory solutions for PCs, today announced the availability of three additions to their best-selling line of Xtasy(tm) graphics accelerators. Featuring the new Titanium(tm) graphics processing units by NVIDIA® Corporation, GeForce3 Ti 500, GeForce3 Ti 200 and GeForce2 Ti are the new processors driving VisionTek's Xtasy 6964, Xtasy 6564, and Xtasy 5864, respectively. All three products are expected to ship to Best Buy, CompUSA, Electronics Boutique, Fry's and Gamestop during the first few weeks of October 2001.

With improved 2D and 3D performance, and unmatched OpenGL and DirectX feature sets, the new Xtasy 6964, Xtasy 6564, and Xtasy 5864 graphics cards provide NVIDIA's next generation of performance for hard-core gamers as well as mainstream PC users looking for video cards that can easily handle the growing graphical demands of today's personal computers.

Xtasy 6964, featuring the Ti 500 chipset, performs up to one and a half times faster than the original GeForce3, setting new levels of performance for the gaming enthusiast. Xtasy 6564, powered by the Ti 200 chip, makes GeForce3 technology architecture available to a broader audience. Xtasy 5864, using the GeForce2 Ti engine, offers higher levels of graphics performance for mainstream computers by delivering 1 billion pixel/sec. rendering power and delivering 6.4GB/sec. of bandwidth for the first time in this market segment.

"Our longstanding partnership with NVIDIA allows us to marry their industry-leading graphics technology to our high-quality, quick-turn manufacturing processes, resulting in killer 3D graphics products that meet and exceed the expectations of PC OEMs, electronics retailers, and consumers," said John Gunn, general manager of the consumer products division for Visiontek, Inc.

"The Xtasy line of accelerators by VisionTek is doing very well for us," said Jerry Madaio, vice president of merchandising, PC products, Electronics Boutique. "I would expect these new Ti-based products to be no exception. Gamers and PC enthusiasts love new technology, and both NVIDIA and VisionTek have a history of delivering the goods," he added


Jeff Fisher, executive vice president of worldwide sales for NVIDIA Corp., commented on VisionTek's ability to consistently deliver high quality 3D graphics cards featuring NVIDIA graphics processors. "By working closely with our partners and OEMs, NVIDIA has been able to deliver new technology to market in a commanding manner. Over the last 3 years, VisionTek has been a strategic partner, capitalizing on the marriage of NVIDIA's technological strength and VisionTek's retail success."

VisionTek was first to the PC add-in card market with NVIDIA's GeForce3 technology, and the company's GeForce3 graphics board has won numerous industry awards, including MaximumPC's "Kick Ass Product Award", PC World's "Top 10 Graphics Boards Award" for July 2001, PC's #1 Gaming Board and Best Buy for July 2001, and Computer Gaming World's "Editor's Choice Award".
