nVidia @ Intel Solutions Summit 2004 - nVidia's Booth - Intel 64-bit processor?

We come, we saw, we left - amidst tight security. We just returned from visiting nVidia at the Intel Solutions Summit 2004 in Sydney, Australia. There we saw GeForce 6800, PCI Express 16x and Intel Grantsdale and Tumwater in action with some type of mysterious 64-bit processor from Intel.

nVidia's Booth - Intel 64-bit processor?

 

nVidia were also displaying a demonstration machine with their now previous generation Quadro 3000 GPU which was only last week replaced with the Quadro 4000. It was running on a reference Intel Tumwater motherboard with Windows XP 64-bit which is a very interesting fact considering speculation about 64-bit Intel processors were not coming out anytime soon - at least to the best of our knowledge.

 

 

 

Unfortunately the Tumwater reference system was hidden away in a locked cabinet so we can't give you any further details on the system.

 

Tze Lin Ong, nVidia Asia Pacific's Technical Marketing Manager explained how luxury and prestige car makers such as Mercedes Benz are using their technology to allow their customers to see what their car could potentially look like with different paint jobs and in car configurations - as displayed in the first picture.

 

The detail and texturing of things like carbon fiber were really amazing and I can easily see why car makers and the like have opted for this type of technology to help sell their products to customers.
