NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800
The Quadro FX 3800 was a high-end professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2009. Built on the 55 nm process, and based on the GT200B graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 10.0. The GT200B graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 470 mm² and 1,400 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce GTX 275, which uses the same GPU but has all 240 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the Quadro FX 3800 to reach the product's target shader count. It features 192 shading units, 64 texture mapping units and 16 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 1,024 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 600 MHz, memory is running at 800 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800 for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1280x720.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800 draws power from 1x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 108 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 2x DisplayPort. Quadro FX 3800 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. The card measures 198 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 799 US Dollars.

GT200B GPU Notes
|GT200b, commonly printed on the chip package as G200-xxx-Bx is an optical shrink of the G200 core to the newer 55 manufacturing process of TSMC. It helped shrink the core's energy and thermal footprints to a level that even facilitated building a dual-GPU accelerator
