â€œLess than a year ago, HP, AMD and NVIDIA partnered to deliver an innovative desktop system for SMB and Public Sector customers. The positive response from these customers to the Compaq D315 BusinessPC has resulted in the introduction of the HP Business Desktop d325,â€ said David Somo, vice president, worldwide strategic accounts at AMD. â€œBusinesses, schools and government agencies will seeimmediate benefits in the out-of-the-box productivity offered by this system which provides a competitive choice in the business desktop market.â€
â€œHP’s public sector and small- and medium-sized business customers value a technology partner that can provide a broad range of quality products and services to help them meet their IT needs andbudgets,â€ said Louis Kim, director of business desktop marketing in HP’s Personal Systems Group. â€œAMD Athlon processors and NVIDIA chipsets provide an excellent platform on which to build reliableand high performing desktops, all delivered at a great value.â€
The HP Business Desktop d325 is designed to enable increased productivity and flexibility among users with standard dual monitor capability. The integrated dual ports with NVIDIA nView Multi-displaytechnology eliminate the need for an additional video card and will aid in interaction between multiple open applications.

The AMD Athlon processor architecture has become a trusted solution for businesses looking for high performance and reduced total cost of ownership. With the combination of NVIDIA’s Unified DriverArchitecture (UDA) and the AMD Athlon XP processor, the update of images across the d325 and its predecessor, the Compaq D315, now requires minimal time and effort.
â€œNVIDIA’s UDA, featured in both the Compaq D315 and HP d325, makes business system deployment and support easier by providing a single driver for all systems,â€ said Drew Henry, senior director ofplatform products at NVIDIA. â€œHaving only a single driver will help ensure the necessary fixes carry over to all products, creating a more stable environment where image validations can be determinedon the customer’s preferred schedule.â€
