The Quadro FX 4500 X2 was a enthusiast-class professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in April 2006. Built on the 90 nm process, and based on the G71 graphics processor, in its QDFX-4500X2-N-A2 variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. The G71 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 196 mm² and 278 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 500 MHz, memory is running at 605 MHz.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 X2 draws power from 2x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 145 W maximum. Display outputs include: 4x DVI. Quadro FX 4500 X2 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 1.0 x16 interface. The card measures 305 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 2799 US Dollars.
