performance and programmability at an entry-level price for professional CAD, DCC, and
The NVIDIA Quadro FX 550 by PNY delivers cost-effective solutions without compromising quality,
precision, performance, and programmability for professional 3D environments. Advanced features
including a 128-bit floating point graphics pipeline, 12-bit subpixel precision, and fast GDDR3
memory, make the NVIDIA Quadro FX 550 by PNY the perfect choice for entry workstations. Implementation
of Rotated Grid FSAA introduces far greater sophistication in the multi-sampling pattern, significantly
increasing color accuracy and visual quality of edges and lines without compromising performance.
Key Features and Benefits
Highest Workstation Application Performance
Next-generation architecture enables over 2x improvement in geometry and fill rates with the
industry's highest performance for professional CAD, DCC, and visualization applications.
Unmatched Color Precision
Full 128-bit precision graphics pipeline enables sophisticated mathematical computations to
maintain high accuracy, resulting in unmatched visual quality. Full IEEE 32-bit floating-point
precision per color component (RGBA) delivers millions of color variations with the broadest dynamic
Next-Generation Vertex and Pixel Programmability
NVIDIA Quadro FX GPUs introduce infinite length vertex programs and dynamic flow control, removing
the previous limits on complexity and structure of shader programs. With full support for Vertex
and Shader Model 3.0, NVIDIA Quadro FX GPUs deliver sophisticated effects never before imagined for
real-time graphics systems.
Unparalleled Subpixel Precision
12-bit subpixel precision delivers high geometric accuracy, eliminating spreckles, cracks, and
other rasterization anomalies.
Hardware-Accelerated Pixel Read-Back
Greater than 2.4GB/Sec., pixel read-back performance delivers massive host throughout, more
than 10x the performance of previous generation graphics systems.
Rotated Grid Full Screen Antialiasing (RG FSAA)
RG FSAA sampling algorithm introduces far greater sophistication in the sampling pattern, significantly
increasing color accuracy and visual quality for edges and lines, reducing "jaggies" while
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.
