Cell phones become Nvidious
Barcelona – Nvidia Corporation yesterday announced the GoForce 5500 handheld GPU, announcing it as the first GPU in its class “capable of supporting smooth digital TV, high fidelity surround sound, fast multi-shot photography and console 3D graphics”.
The new GPU promises to bring such features into mobile phones, once reserved for optical or home entertainment devices. The interest in the business is confirmed by the observations of Mario Morales, an analyst at IDC: “Quality multimedia services are a key element for the growth of the turnover of content providers and telecommunication companies”.
Nvidia, for the GoForce 5500 handheld GPU, declares multimedia features such as smooth, full-resolution digital TV and video, high-fidelity surround sound, console-quality 3D gaming, high-quality digital images and Ultra-low power technology, by virtue of a hardware that the manufacturer defines dedicated to low energy absorption to devote more time to entertainment on the phone without reducing conversation time
NVIDIA’s GoForce 5500 GPU-based phones will be made available by major manufacturers in models arriving before summer 2006, according to the company.
