NVIDIA Quadro FX 380 Image NVIDIA G96 Image
The Quadro FX 380 was a mid-range professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2009. Built on the 65 nm process, and based on the G96 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 10.0. The G96 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 144 mm² and 314 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce 9600M GT Mac Edition, which uses the same GPU but has all 32 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the Quadro FX 380 to reach the product's target shader count. It features 16 shading units, 8 texture mapping units and 8 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 256 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 450 MHz, memory is running at 700 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA Quadro FX 380 for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 800x600.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 380 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 34 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI. Quadro FX 380 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 129 US Dollars.
