NVIDIA recently rolled out a new business graphics solution called the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 420. The solution has been particularly designed to offer maximum display real estate in a small package. The solution has the ability to run big displays with a small form factor computer. Besides delivering stability and a vast compatibility, the solution also sports some very powerful features.
Bundled with a support for four 30 inch displays that have resolutions of up to 2560 x 1600, the Quadros NVS 420 software will allow business professionals to increase their productivity. Maximizing the performance capability, the solution also includes the NVIDIA nView display software that offers many user-friendly display tools. With the NVIDIA nView software, users can easily distribute their work across single, large or multiple displays.
“The convenience of small form factor computers can now finally be matched with remarkable business graphics and digital display capabilities,” remarked Jeff Brown, general manager, Professional Solutions, NVIDIA. “The Quadro NVS 420 transforms these small form factor machines into business graphics powerhouses.”
The software packs in many user friendly desktop and application management functions. These include the ability to split the display into multiple regions through the display gridlines that maximizes a user’s desktop space and virtual desktops that will enable a user to launch applications on nearly 32 different desktops along with the extended windows Taskbar. The taskbar has a multiple display spanning capacity that allows the application window buttons to be spread over multiple displays.
Some other highlights of the Quadro NVS 420 GPU are a large frame buffer, high memory bandwidth, DisplayPort connectors support that allows more screen real estate from a single graphics card on an SFF system and compatibility with most hardware and software specifications. In addition the NVS 420 has been incorporated with the NVIDIA Unified Driver Architecture (UDA) that ensures a simple upgrade process. The solution is Energy Star compliant and consumes less power too.
Starting February 2009 onwards, the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 420 GPU will be available for a price of around $499.
