NVIDIA said Friday that not only will it align its products with Windows Vista’s development, but that most of its graphics processing units are already compatible with the current test versions of Vista.
NVIDIA said it plans to take advantage of Vista’s Desktop Compositing Engine to leverage GPUs in Vista.
“We believe the GPU will become the focal point of a variety of new technologies in the Windows Vista timeframe, including HD-DVD, high-definition TV playback, and video processing,” said Lew Wagman, NVIDIA strategic marketing director, in a statement.
NVIDIA released a list of its products that are supported in the latest Windows Vista Community Technology Preview. The effort also encompasses hardware and software support for 32-bit and 64-bit computing.
The NVIDIA GeForce products cited by the graphics processor firm include FX, 6, and 7 Series desktop and notebook GPUs as well as GeForce 6 Series motherboard GPUs.
