NVIDIA releases Quadro FX 4000 workstation GPU

In a week after the GeForce 6800 announcement NVIDIA officially released NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000 designed for professional needs. From Quadro FX 3000 it differs by higher performance (133 million triangles vs. the previous 100 million triangles; 4.5 billion texels per second vs. the previous 3.2 billion texels per second.

Though both older and newer GPUs support up to 256MB GDDR3 SDRAM over 256-bit bus, FX 4000 has supported memory clock rate increased to 1GHz (vs. 850MHz of FX 3000) that makes 32GB/s total bandwidth. Besides, dual-DVI connection is now supported at up to 3840x2400 pixels.

Quadro FX 4000 will start shipping next months in cards from PNY, Leadtek and Elsa.

At the same time NVIDIA announced Quadro FX 4000 SDI model for TV studio workstations. This one supports realtime rendering, color conversion, gamma correction, and can output uncompressed 10-bit SDI video in SMPTE format.

  • NVIDIA Quadro FX 700
  • NVIDIA Quadro FX 1000
  • NVIDIA Quadro FX 1100
