NIVIDIA launches Quadro FX 5800 graphics card with 4 GB memory

NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 NIVIDIA has made yet another important contribution to the world of graphic cards by launching the NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 graphics card featuring CUDA massively parallel processing architecture, for professionals.

Adding to its features that make it’s a high-performance card is the 4 GB graphics memory.

The card is aimed at professionals dealing with oil and gas exploration, medical imaging, styling and design, and scientific visualization.

“The size and complexity of data is growing at an exponential rate. The challenge for today’s professional is to make sense of the mountain of data by distilling it into a form they can comprehend, analyze and use to make impactful decisions,” said Jeff Brown, general manager, Professional Solutions, NVIDIA. “At stake can be billions of investment dollars, or even people’s lives. The Quadro FX 5800 has advanced features to allow massive datasets to be viewed beyond traditional 3D enabling professionals to make fast and accurate decisions.”

The advanced features NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 Graphics Card incorporates interactive 4D modeling with time lapse capabilities, memory bandwidth of up to 102 GB per second. The fill rates exceed 52 billion texels per second and the geometry performance of 300 million triangles per second. The card also has support for next-generation OpenGL and Microsoft DirectX 10 applications, advanced multi-system and multi-device visualization environments with Quadro G-Sync II.

Priced at an MSRP of $3499 USD, the NVIDIA Quadro cards are available widely across leading PC manufacture, and workstation system integrators and NVIDIA channel partners PNY Technologies (US and EMEA), Leadtek (APAC) and Elsa (Japan).
