SANTA CLARA, CA - Nvidia (, manufacturer of graphics and digital media processors, announced that Rhythm & Hues Studios has standardized their digital production pipeline on Nvidia Quadro FX products. Over 500 digital content creation workstations in this leading-edge facility have already been equipped with Nvidia Quadro FX boards for their 3D effects, animation, and rendering applications.

Nvidia Quadro FX products became the standard at Rhythm & Hues after an extensive evaluation of the available professional 3D graphics solutions.

"With other vendors, Linux drivers lag well behind their Windows drivers in supporting the leading edge features of the graphics boards,? said Mark Brown, VP of technology for Rhythm & Hues. "The NVIDIA unified drivers are always right there, right on and supporting the latest, greatest features." The Unified Driver Architecture allows Rhythm & Hues to deploy and quickly upgrade an array of different software applications and hardware configurations - and to support them all with a single driver.
