The Quadro FX 4400 was a enthusiast-class professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in July 2005. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the NV45 graphics processor, in its NV45 GL variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. The NV45 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 12 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 512 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 525 MHz.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4400 draws power from 1x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 83 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 1x S-Video. Quadro FX 4400 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 1.0 x16 interface. Its price at launch was 2399 US Dollars.
