The NVIDIA Quadro® FX 4400 sets a new bar for professional
graphics, shattering the limits of performance, programmability,
precision, and quality for professional CAD, DCC, and
scientific applications. The ultra-high end NVIDIA Quadro FX4400
by PNY features a revolutionary new architecture with 2x the
geometry and fill rate, 5x the hardware pixel read-back performance,
1.25x the memory bandwidth of previous generation professional
graphics, and 512MB ultra-fast GDDR3 memory. Implementation of
rotated-grid FSAA introduces far greater sophistication in the
multi-sampling pattern, significantly increasing color accuracy
and the visual quality of edges and lines without compromising
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
Enables mathematical computations to maintain high accuracy,
resulting in unmatched visual quality.
12-bit Subpixel Precision
3x that of the nearest competitive professional graphics,
12-bit subpixel precision delivers high geometric accuracy,
eliminating spreckles, cracks, and other rasterization anomalies.
High Quality Full-Scene Antialiasing (FSAA)
Up to 16x FSAA dramatically reduces visual aliasing artifacts
or "jaggies" at resolutions up to 3840x2400, resulting in highly
realistic scenes. New rotated grid FSAA algorithm (RGFSAA)
delivers unprecedented quality and performance.
High Precision Dynamic Range Imaging (HPDR) technology
Sets new standards for image clarity and quality through
floating point capabilities in shading, filtering, texturing
and blending. Enables unprecedented rendered image quality for
visual effects processing. Support for 32-bit floating point
precision per component - an industry exclusive.
Hardware-Accelerated Pixel Read-Back
Greater than 1.0GB/sec. pixel read-back performance delivers
massive host throughput, more than 5x the performance of previous
generation graphics systems.
PCI Express Support
Designed specifically to take advantage of the next-generation
PCI Express bus architecture. This new bus doubles the bandwidth
of AGP 8X delivering over 4 GB per second in both upstream and
downstream data transfers.
Unified Driver Architecture
Provides easy installation and manageability through a single
unified driver for large scale system deployment. The performance
and power of the NVIDIA Quadro FX are built on a solid foundation
of quality engineering. This engineering excellence is exemplified
by the NVIDIA Unified Driver Architecture (UDA), which is certified
for quality by the entire spectrum of CAD and DCC applications.
