NVIDIA today unveiled the NVIDIA Quadro® FX 1100, a mid-range
professional graphics solution that outperforms high-end competitive boards on
key industry-standard SPECviewperf® 7.1.1 3dsmax-02, ProE-02, and Ugs-03
tests.(1) Engineered to deliver unprecedented graphics performance, precision,
and programmability, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 1100 will serve demanding graphics and
engineering professionals in computer-aided design, digital content creation,
and scientific visualization markets. Available from IBM in its IntelliStation
MPro and ZPro workstations as well as HP in the HP Workstation xw4100, HP
Workstation xw6000, and HP Workstation xw8000 early next year, the NVIDIA Quadro
FX 1100 is armed with a high-end architecture that is designed to allow
developers to interactively simulate a virtually unlimited range of real-world
properties. NVIDIA Quadro distributors such as PNY (US and Europe), LeadTek
(Asia/Pacific), and Elsa (Japan), as well as other value-added resellers and
system builders are also selling the NVIDIA Quadro FX 1100, now in volume
production.

Features and benefits of the NVIDIA Quadro FX 1100 include:

  • Industry’s only true 128-bit floating-point graphics
    pipeline delivers a higher level of accuracy and the ultimate in visual
    quality.
  • Industry-leading 12 bits of subpixel precision helps to
    ensure high geometric accuracy and the elimination of sparkles, cracks, and
    other rasterization anomalies.
  • Third-generation vertex and pixel programmability allows
    professionals to simulate a wide range of physical effects and surface
    properties.
  • 128MB graphics memory powers high resolution digital and
    analog displays.
  • 0.13-micron graphics processing unit from the IBM foundry
    in East Fishkill, NY for higher performance with lower power consumption.
