The Quadro FX 4000 was a enthusiast-class professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in April 2004. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the NV40 A1 graphics processor, in its NV40 GL variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. The NV40 A1 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 287 mm² and 222 million transistors. It features 12 pixel shaders and 5 vertex shaders, 12 texture mapping units and 8 ROPs. 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 256 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 375 MHz, memory is running at 500 MHz.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000 draws power from 2x Molex power connectors, with power draw rated at 142 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 1x S-Video. Quadro FX 4000 is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface. Its price at launch was 2199 US Dollars.
