NVIDIA, the world leader in visual computing technologies, continues to grow its undisputed position of leadership across the Middle East and has signed a strategic partnership with Touchmate, an indigenous IT brand in the UAE and the world’s biggest IT Products Range manufacturer.
The tie-up ensures most of the Touchmate systems will now feature NVIDIA’s world class GPU technology across their entire range of Gaming PCs, desktops and notebooks.
One of the first products to come out of this tie-up is Touchmate’s ‘Transformer Gamers PC’ showcased during GITEX 2008 and now available in retail from Sharaf DG and others. The PC has 2 configurations using NVIDIA GEFORCE 8800GT and NVIDIA GEFORCE 9800GT GPUs.

We will make concerted efforts along with NVIDIA to educate the market about ‘Graphics Plus’ and ‘PC Optimization’ using NVIDIA GeForce graphic cards”.
‘Graphics Plus’ is a unique functionality of NVIDIA’s latest GPUs which differentiates it from competition. ‘Graphics Plus’ is a term coined by NVIDIA which encompasses four features – PhysX, CUDA, SLI/ Parallel Processing and 3D Stereo technology. With NVIDIA PhysX technology, GeForce GPUs bring games to life with explosions that cause dust and debris, characters that move with life-like motion, or cloth that drapes and tears naturally. PhysX technology harnesses the power of both the CPU and any NVIDIA GeForce® 8 Series or higher GPU, giving it the power to handle 10-20 times more visual complexity on screen. The latest NVIDIA GPUs support CUDA™ technology for accelerating non-gaming applications such as high-definition video playback and transcoding, to photo processing and editing.
The vector processing capabilites of GPUs and the Scalable Link Interface (SLI) solution from NVIDIA which enables linking of two or more graphics cards to produce a single output is another feature makes it suitable for financial analytics, medical research and other applications requiring huge processing power. And soon, with a compatible monitor and stereoscopic glasses, NVIDIA GeForce GPUs will be able to deliver stereoscopic gaming for over 350 existing games, for the ultimate in immersive gaming.
