The NVIDIA Quadro® FX 4400 sets a new bar for workstation
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 workstation
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
KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS
Proven Workstation Graphics Architecture Parallel vertex engines,
programmable pixel pipelines, and workstation specific features
result in the industry's highest application performance and
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 workstation graphics, 12-bit
subpixel precision delivers high geometric accuracy, eliminating
spreckles, cracks, and other rasterization anomalies.
High Quality Full-Scene Antialiasing
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
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
