NVIDIA Quadro 400 Image NVIDIA GT216 Image
The Quadro 400 was a mid-range professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in April 2011. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the GT216 graphics processor, in its GT216 GL variant, the card supports DirectX 10.1. The GT216 graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 100 mm² and 486 million transistors. It features 48 shading units, 16 texture mapping units and 8 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 512 MB DDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 450 MHz, memory is running at 770 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA Quadro 400 for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 800x600.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA Quadro 400 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 32 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x DisplayPort. Quadro 400 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. The card measures 163 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 169 US Dollars.
