Nvidia Corp. unveiled its nForce Professional media and communications processors (MCPs), said to be the only PCI-Express core-logic solutions for AMD Opteron processor-based server and workstation platforms.

Designed for cost-effective server and workstation environments, the new MCPs are the first and only solutions to offer support for PCI-Express and other advanced technology solutions, including integrated client-based security features, TCP/IP offload, fault tolerant storage designs and optimizations for Nvidia Quadro workstation graphics solutions, including multi-display and Nvidia scalable link interface (SLI) environments, said the press release.

The nForce Professional MCP family, which today includes the nForce Professional 2200 and the 2050 MCP, an I/O companion chip, offers a host of technological capabilities that make it a suitable platform for industrial-level computing.

"For the transition to PCI-Express, Nvidia is ready with the technology that computing professionals require," commented Drew Henry, the company's GM for its platform business. "This new technology greatly positions Nvidia to become a preeminent supplier of server and workstation platforms."

According to Nvidia, professional products utilizing the nForce Professional MCPs are already available from leading providers of workstations, servers and motherboards, including Alienware, Boxx Technologies, Colfax, IWILL, Panta Systems, Tyan and @XI Computer.
