NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 Shows Off 4GB of Graphics Memory and is Not For Gamers!


Quadro FX 5800 Graphics Card



With a price of 3,500$US, this new ultra high-end graphics card from NVIDIA is not for gamers, it’s for professionals only! The Quadro FX 5800 is based on the same GPU than GeForce GTX 280 and offers the same specifications:
– GPU: GT200
– Shader processors: 240
– Texture max size: 8192×8192
– OpenGL 2.1 and Direct3D 10

But Quadro FX 5800 differs from GeForce GTX 280 on the graphics memory size: 4096Mb of GDDR3 for the Quadro FX 5800. This huge amount of graphics memory is important for dealing with large datasets and textures. What’s more, Quadro series come with optimized graphics drivers.

This quadro seems to have the same design than its little sister, the Quadro CX.

And do not forget the upcoming Quadro Plex 2200 S4 (planned for december 2008), that comes with four Quadro FX 5800: this visual computing system proudly shows off 16GB of graphics memory and 960 shader processors for around 15,000$US
