NVIDIA Quadro FX Architecture Achieves Unprecedented Performance
Featuring the industry's broadest family of PCI Express™ products
designed from the ground up with the needs of professional CAD,
DCC, and Scientific Visualization applications and users in mind,
NVIDIA Quadro FX ushers in a new era of unprecedented performance,
programmability, precision, and quality.
The NVIDIA Quadro FX architecture takes application performance to
new levels by featuring an array of parallel vertex engines, a
radically new line engine, and fully programmable pixel pipelines
coupled to a high-speed graphics DRAM bus. Pipeline efficiency is
further multiplied by NVIDIA's next-generation crossbar memory
architecture - enabling occlusion-culling, lossless depth Z-buffer,
and color compression.
KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS
Proven Professional Graphics Architecture
Parallel vertex engines, programmable pixel pipelines, and
workstation specific features result in the industry's highest
application performance and quality.
Advanced Vertex and Pixel Programmability
Enables real-time shaders to simulate a wide range of physical effects
and surface properties.
Full 128-bit Precision Graphics Pipeline
Allows mathematical computations to maintain high accuracy,
resulting in unmatched visual quality.
12-bit Subpixel Precision
3x that of the nearest competitive professional graphics products;
12-bit subpixel precision delivers high geometric accuracy,
eliminating spreckles, cracks, and other rasterization anomalies.
High Precision Dynamic Range Imaging (HPDR)
Sets new standards for image clarity and quality through floating
point capabilities applied to shading, filtering, texturing, and
blending. Provides unprecedented rendered image quality for visual
effects processing and delivers support for 32-bit floating point
precision per component - an industry exclusive.
Scalable Link Interface (SLI™) Technology
SLI allows dual GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) to significantly
accelerate graphics performance. Professional users benefit by
using SLI technology on twin graphics boards to span a hardware
accelerated OpenGL window across multiple displays, or to run a
single application per GPU. SLI also offers dual GPU performance
on a single display by utilizing the capabilities of two NVIDIA
Quadro GPUs to drive it (SLI hardware connector required).
PCI Express Support
Designed to take full advantage of the next generation PCI Express
expansion bus architecture. This new bus doubles the bandwidth of
AGP 8X and delivers over 4GB per second in both upstream and
downstream data transfer modes.
Unified Driver Architecture
Provides easy installation and sophisticated manageability through
a single unified driver tailored for large scale system
deployments. The performance and power of NVIDIA Quadro FX are
built on a solid foundation of quality engineering, testing, and
real world solutions expertise. These strengths are exemplified by
the NVIDIA Unified Driver Architecture (UDA), which is certified
for quality across the entire spectrum of CAD, DCC, and Scientific
