NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 Image NVIDIA G70 Image
The Quadro FX 4500 was a high-end professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in July 2005. Built on the 110 nm process, and based on the G70 graphics processor, in its G70 GL variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. The G70 graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 333 mm² and 302 million transistors. It features 24 pixel shaders and 8 vertex shaders, 24 texture mapping units and 16 ROPs. 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 512 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 430 MHz, memory is running at 525 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1024x768.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 draws power from 1x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 109 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 1x S-Video. Quadro FX 4500 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. The card measures 267 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 2,499 US Dollars.
