The Quadro NVS 440 was a professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2009. Built on the 110 nm process, and based on the NV43 A4 graphics processor, in its NVS440 NPB variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. The NV43 A4 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 150 mm² and 146 million transistors. Quadro NVS 440 combines two graphics processors to increase performance. It features 8 pixel shaders and 4 vertex shaders, 8 texture mapping units and 8 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 256 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface per GPU (each GPU manages 128 MB). The GPU is operating at a frequency of 250 MHz, memory is running at 250 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 440 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 31 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DMS-59. Quadro NVS 440 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 1.0 x16 interface. The card measures 187 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution.
