NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 X2 Image NVIDIA G70 Image
The Quadro FX 4500 X2 was a high-end professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in April 2006. Built on the 110 nm process, and based on the G70 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. The G70 graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 333 mm² and 302 million transistors. Quadro FX 4500 X2 combines two graphics processors to increase performance. It features 24 pixel shaders and 8 vertex shaders, 24 texture mapping units and 16 ROPs per GPU. Due to the lack of unified shaders you will not be able to run recent games at all (which require unified shader/DX10+ support). NVIDIA has placed 1,024 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface per GPU (each GPU manages 512 MB). The GPU is operating at a frequency of 470 MHz, memory is running at 575 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 X2 for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1680x1050.
Being a dual-slot card, its power draw is rated at 145 W maximum. Display outputs include: 4x DVI. Quadro FX 4500 X2 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. The card measures 305 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 2,799 US Dollars.
