    What is the placement process of Nvidia?
    Could someone share the aptitude test questions of Nvidia?

    I heard that they give descriptive questions in the first test.

    I found some questions for the Nvidia Interview. Please share other questions too.

    How will you test window media player?
    How will you manually test yahoo messenger on single system.
    What is a milestone and how can we change the default milestone?
    What is function testing?
    Write as many test cases of Interner Explorer compatibilty on test on Windows Operating System?
    How many operating system can you install on one machine?
    What is NTFS and FAT32?
    What is AGP?
    What is setup.inf?
    What are the ways to install driver?
    Difference between XP and Vista?
    Give example of High Severity and Low Priority Bug you filed?
    When is a process created using fork()?
    What is shared between parent process and child process.
    1. Heap 2. Stack 3. Shared memory segments 4. I/O handles
    Function to find the given number is a power of 2 or not?
    How is the size of an integer decided? Is it based on processor or compiler or OS?
    How you will test media player ?
    What is primary duty of a tester?

    what is the difference between ERROR and EXCEPTION?
    How to identify a singly linked list that whether it is circular or not?
    Can your ciruit operate at 1MHz? If not what are the changes to be made?
    To construct a 2^n :1 MUX. how many leat number of 2:1 MUXes are required.
    If propagation delay of each MUX is 1nsec what will be the propogation delay of the above built ciruit.
    Some question on Address banks and had some figure.
    There were given some Setup time and hold time for register (i can't remember the values) and the logic ciruit were given with max and min delay
    Find out the mins. freq of operation.

    Most of the questions were asked from digital electronics :)

    @AKD : I didnt take Nvidia aptitude test :) I got the questions from google :)

    My friend got placed in Nvidia. I ll ask him and post the placement procedure in detailed manner.


    Minimum Requirements:

    Should have sound knowledge on hardware and hardware trouble shooting.
    Prior experience on WHQL and DTM is must.
    Excellent knowledge on Vista, Vista 64 bit or 32 bit or XP is essential.
    Should have thorough understanding of OS architecture.
    Excellent know-how of Drivers and Windows Drivers Model
    Knowledge of Networking and general administration on Windows.

    @Pravee: Thanks.
    Here are some questions I found:

    Q. Why do we use circular link list in place of any balanced tree in storage allocator app? By using balanced search tree the address search time would be reduced to O(log n) which is not the case with Linked lists. To make it more clear : we are not restricted to free the memory allocated in the sequence in which it was allocated(hint)

    As Praveena said there are a lot of questions on Digital Electronics:

    • Finite state machine(FSM)
    • Cache memory
    • Timing verifications
    • Programming in C
    • Programming in VHDL
    • Programming in Verilog
    • PLA
    All questions are descriptive. There are no multiple choice questions.
    If anybody has taken Nvidia campus test, please reply here. :)

    Are all these questions for IT/comp placements or for E&TC?

    Hello friends, today nVIDIA had come to my college(Sinhgad, pune). They raised their eligibility crieteria to 65 % on the last moment so could not attend it. some of the questions were:
    1.Which is the most widely used Processor on netbook computers(ans: ATOM)
    2.What is Firmware(1.pgmming technique or 2.Hardware or etc... )
    3.Which of the following interface is used for both audio and video dual link(1.HDMI,2.DVI,3.SPSS etc..).
    will post the details after I chat with my friends

    Engineering graduates appearing for NVIDIA should keep in mind that they company recruits candidates from non-CS/IT branches for the QA profile. Before you take up the job - understand that Hardware QA limits your domain in the overall software Industry. Engineers who've worked on NVIDIA's hardware products won't have the knowledge or experience of working in other regular software testing projects. Your choice of companies which you can join after NVIDIA QA experience will be limited to INTEL and other NVIDIA rivals in India.

    questions on Polymorphism(tell the types and write the program based on an example of run time polymorphism).then inheritance again told me to write the program,data structures like arrays, linked list ,told me to write the code to find the height of BST..
    then questions on OS(deadlock in deatil..Kernel..Daemon process(favourite question i guess was asked in apti also)).then DBMS ..definitions of nomalization,keys(types there definitions)..SDLC (various models ..gave real life problems and told me to relate those with the models of SDLC)..Thats it the students who got selected had to appear for 4-5 tech. interviews(they just change the panels)..But frankly it depends on what panel you get..those who wish to get into nvidia prepare the basics very very well plus relate those with examples that will make your place in nvidia for sure..
