3D graphics enthusiast Chris Arthington

Chris was a longtime graphics enthusiast, nZone moderator, and frequent contributor on a number of forums including NVnews, SLIzone, EVGA, Rage3D, Anandtech, and others. He loved graphics technology and had a sincere desire to help people by sharing information, trouble-shooting, and reporting issues to NVIDIA. As a member of our user group, he helped us evaluate new hardware and advocated for improvements like advanced anti-aliasing and improved multi-GPU scaling. His Twitter (ChrisRaySLI) bio states: “Goal: Help all Nvidia users by improving their experience with Nvidia hardware.” He did that in a big way.

The graphics community and the team at NVIDIA have lost a great friend and a tireless advocate, and he’ll be sorely missed.

NVNews.net created a site to honor and remember Chris. Please go here to the memorial page and post your reflections. NVIDIA is providing support to his family, and we’ll pay tribute to Chris at GeForce LAN events and other activities throughout the year.
