And if you are living in Asia (not Japan though) you should check out the corresponding Leadtek Quadro FX 4600/5600 cards.

... I am quite sure you will get Leadtek models all over the world - anyway here are the real (old: look here - thank you D_o_S) news ...

Taipei, Taiwan, March 5th, 2007--Leadtek Research Inc., the exclusive workstation partner of NVIDIA in Asia except in Japan, today announced the latest edition in the NVIDIA Quadro series — FX 5600 and FX 4600. A revolution in visual computing, NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600/4600 workstation graphics cards by Leadtek deliver optimized application performance. Combining NVIDIA CUDA™ thread computing technology with the industry's most advanced feature set, including 1.5GB largest frame buffers and ground-breaking NVIDIA G80GL unified architecture, Quadro FX 5600/4600 ultra-high-end solution solves the most complex problems. With fully supporting for Microsoft DirectX 10.0 and Shader Model 4.0 standard, Quadro FX 5600/4600 enable next generation applications with unprecedented image quality.

Quadro FX 4600


NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600, boast the industry's first 1.5GB GDDR3 frame buffer and a massive memory bandwidth of up to 76GB/sec while NVIDIA Quadro FX4600 has a 768MB GDDR3 frame buffer and ultra fast memory bandwidth. Both products have digital display connectorssupporting ultra-high-resolution panels (up to 2560 x 1600 @ 60Hz on each panel) --which result in amazing image quality producing detailed photorealistic images. They also offer next-generation vertex and pixel programmability with shader model 4.0 enabling a higher level of performance and ultra-realistic effects for OpenGL and next generation DirectX 10.0 industry-leading professional applications.



This is the first testing result of actual professional application with Quadro ultra-high-end graphics series. SPECviewperf 9 numbers clearly speak for themselves: FX 5600/4600, it is apparent, deliver more realistic effects than previous editions. We can say confidently that NVIDIA Quadro FX series by Leadtek is a ‘must have' for any serious professional DCC, CAD, Visualization application users. All of these are tested on 3 GHz Dual Core Duo Xeon®, Driver Release 97.00 and SPECviewperf 9.
