3DLabs Announces P10 - Joe Glass
3DLabs has made a huge announcement today. They are announcing their new graphics architecture code named P10. AnandTech and Tom's Hardware have articles reviewing the architecture. There are no benchmarks since I don't believe there were boards to test with. Here are some bullet points to think about:

  • VPU (not just GPU) - Visual Processing Unit
  • Fully Programmable Architecture (Vertex and Pixel Processors)
  • 16 Vertex Processing Units
  • 8 multi-texture combines per pass
  • Support for all types of FSAA (Super and Multi)
  • 20GB/s of memory bandwidth using 256bit DDR memory
  • Virtual Memory Like Memory Interface addressable to 16GB
We have the PR here.. More to come!

Nvidia named workstation market leader - Benjamin Sun
Nvidia has been named the workstation graphics market leader by 3 different firms . Here's the Press Release:
NVIDIA NAMED WORKSTATION GRAPHICS MARKET LEADER BY GARTNER, IDC AND JPR
Top Industry Analysts Validate NVIDIA's Market Position; Company Sets its Sights on New Growth Segments

SANTA CLARA, CA - APRIL 30, 2002 - NVIDIA® Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) today reported that its Quadro(tm) family of professional graphics solutions have earned the top spot as the 3D workstation market leader in recent reports by
Gartner, IDC and Jon Peddie Research (JPR), three respected research and consulting firms.  With its most recent product generation*called Quadro4*
NVIDIA offers 3D and 2D solutions that span the entire workstation market and deliver industry-leading 3D and 2D performance; the highest number of professional application certifications; and innovative new features such as advanced shader operations and multi-display technology.

"NVIDIA Quadro exemplifies the strongest, broadest, most recognized workstation brand in the graphics industry," stated Dan Vivoli, vice
president of marketing at NVIDIA.  "Earlier generations of Quadro products transformed the 3D DCC and CAD markets. Our new Quadro4 family continues to drive innovation and growth in 3D while expanding into new 2D workstation segments including non-linear video editing, financial trading and electronic design automation.  With a well-established reputation for outstanding 3D performance, quality and rapid innovation, Quadro4 graphics solutions are well aligned to become the platform of choice for the 2D
professional."

In a recent quarterly report entitled "Market Watch," Jon Peddie Research noted that NVIDIA Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) were shipped in more graphic add-in boards (AIBs) for the 3D workstation market than from any other supplier, commanding 65 percent market share in the second half of 2001 (Q3 and Q4).  In another report, Worldwide Professional Graphics Update, IDC attributed NVIDIA's growth in the fourth quarter of 2001 to strong shipments of the Quadro2 MXR and Quadro2 EX graphics cards, and placed NVIDIA's share at 55 percent of the professional 3D market.  The most recent Gartner data estimates NVIDIA's leading market share position at 52 percent for the first half of 2001.

Click here for the press release. Here's a snip:
GURNEE, Ill., April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- VisionTek, a leading provider of advanced graphics and memory solutions for PCs, today announced that it has once again captured the top retail spot among PC graphics accelerator manufacturers. According to the latest report from NPD INTELECT Market Tracking®, VisionTek held the top retail spot in U.S. graphics card sales for February 2002.

In November 2001, VisionTek became the first NVIDIA graphics card partner to achieve market share dominance in U.S. stores.
