NVIDIA announces that PC makers like Acer are using NVIDIA motherboard GPUs to deliver new lines of consumer-oriented, small-form-factor PCs that have the performance, functionality, price, and visual performance of full-sized desktop machines.
The Acer Aspire x1200 and x3200 line of PCs use the NVIDIA GeForce 8200 GPU to deliver visual performance while solving many of the thermal, noise, and cost issues traditionally associated with designing smaller machines.
To date, small-form-factor PCs have relied on integrated graphics chips, but with the explosive growth of visually intensive applications, integrated graphics don’t deliver the performance that consumers are demanding. A dedicated GPU is needed for optimal performance.

NVIDIA GeForce motherboard GPUs are single-chip solutions that combine the performance and DirectX 10 compatibility of a GeForce GPU with the functionality of NVIDIA nForce core-logic. The GeForce 8200 GPU’s superior performance for a given thermal envelope, plus its full support for standard desktop PC components, give PC makers a cost-effective solution for creating smaller, quieter, and energy efficient PCs that pack a visual punch using the full range of AMD CPUs.

The GeForce 8200 GPU also gives Acer, other PC makers, and system builders flexibility in creating a line of products that are optimized for particular customer requirements. The motherboard GPU can be used in low-cost machines targeted at a mainstream audience, delivering the graphics performance needed for today’s visual computing applications, like Windows Vista, and casual gaming.
The motherboard GPUs also feature a dedicated PureVideo HD video process that delivers superior Blu-ray and HD video performance and the GPU can be used to transcode video to play on portable devices. Or an additional GeForce graphics card can be added using NVIDIA’s Hybrid SLI® technology with GeForce Boost. GeForce Boost combines the processing capabilities of the GeForce 8200 motherboard GPU with select GeForce 9 Series graphics cards for more graphics horsepower when running games and visually intensive apps and providing power savings when using less visually demanding functions.

The Acer Aspire X1200 and X3200 with the GeForce 8200 GPU are now available for purchase from retailers.
