PNY Video NVIDIA Quadro FX 1300 by PNY - Graphics Product Details
NVIDIA Quadro FX Architecture Achieves Unprecedented Performance
Featuring the industry’s first top-to-bottom family of PCI Express products targeted for professional CAD, DCC, and Scientific applications, NVIDIA Quadro FX ushers in a new era of unprecedented performance, programmability, precision and quality.
The NVIDIA Quadro FX architecture takes application performance to new levels by featuring an array of parallel vertex engines, a radically new line engine and fully programmable pixel pipelines coupled to a high-speed graphics DRAM bus. Pipeline efficiency is further multiplied by NVIDIA’s next-generation crossbar memory architecture, enabling occlusion-culling, lossless depth Z-buffer, and color compression.
Key Features And Benefits:
Proven Professional Graphics Architecture:
Parallel vertex engines, programmable pixel pipelines, and workstation specific features result in the industry's highest application performance and quality.
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 professional graphics, 12-bit subpixel precision delivers high geometric accuracy, eliminating spreckles, cracks, and other rasterization anomalies.
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 applications.
