PNY Technologies today announced the availability of two high-end professional graphics accelerators based on the NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 and Quadro FX 4800 GPUs. The two are based on the GT200 architecture. The Quadro FX 5800 features 240 shader units (dubbed CUDA programmable parallel cores) and 4 GB of GDDR3 memory, while the FX 4800 features 192 shader cores with 1.5 GB of GDDR3 memory.
The amount of visual computing power at its disposal allows deployment in computing areas of oil and natural gas exploration, medical imagery, scientific visualisation, and engineering and design.
As described by the company, the new accelerators feature:
- Real-time Visualisation of Large Data Sets – Equipped with 1.5 GB and 4GB graphics memory, the Quadro Fx4800 and Quadro FX5800 have the capacity to process large textures and frames in real time while providing fill rates of 38 billion texels per second and geometry performance of 300 million triangles per second.
- Increased Image Quality - A 128-bit precision graphic pipeline and 32x FSAA for better image clarity and quality.
- Ultra-high Colour Fidelity and Resolutions – Dual 10-bit display ports delivering a colour palette of over a billion colours, orders of magnitude greater than previous generations of graphics cards. Also included is a single dual-link digital display connector for ultra-high resolution panels of up to 3840 x 2400 at 24Hz.
- High-performance Visualisation - A CUDA parallel computing processor architecture exposed through a C language environment and tool suite. In combination with high-performance visualisation, CUDA unleashes new capabilities to solve highly complex challenges such as real-time ray tracing, video encoding and interactive volume rendering.
The new accelerators are available through retail channels and system integrators at an MSRP of 1569 € for the Quadro FX 4800 and 2859 € for the Quadro FX 5800.
