NVIDIA today announced the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 graphics processing unit (GPU), a solution offering fifty percent more horsepower than the previous generation high-end product. NVIDIA® SLI™ multi-GPU technology featured in the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 enables a number of unique capabilities: Support for 32x full-scene antialiasing (FSAA) delivering superior image quality, Support for up to four dual-link high-resolution displays with a single system, Multiple GPUs matched with the NVIDIA Quadro G-Sync option board. The NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 offers a combination of features, including a unified 512MB frame buffer memory and SLI technology support. The NVIDIA Quadro FX 3450 GPU, also introduced today, offers an excellent mix of price and performance for customers looking to widely deploy a more cost-effective solution.

NVIDIA Corporation, a worldwide leader in graphics and digital media
processors, today announced the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 graphics processing unit
(GPU), a solution offering fifty percent more horsepower than the previous
generation high-end product. NVIDIA® SLI™ multi-GPU technology featured in the
NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 enables a number of unique capabilities:

  • Support for 32x full-scene antialiasing (FSAA) delivering superior image
    quality
  • Support for up to four dual-link high-resolution displays with a single
    system
  • Multiple GPUs matched with the NVIDIA Quadro G-Sync option board

“NVIDIA Quadro capabilities, like framelock, genlock, and multi-GPU, really
set these solutions apart from anything else in the industry,” said Mats W.
Johansson, president of EON Reality. “For example, our EON design software is
seeing a 100% performance increase with SLI running in Frame Rendering mode by
combining the power of two NVIDIA Quadro boards and the NVIDIA Quadro G-Sync
option board to drive large product display powerwalls.”

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 offers a combination of features, including a unified
512MB frame buffer memory and SLI technology support, with a new architecture
that increases raw performance for a solution that brings a new level of
graphics computing power. The result is that a much broader range of customers
now have access to advanced graphics systems that were previously only available
in cost prohibitive and proprietary workstation solutions. A long list of
standard features, such as a 128-bit floating point frame buffer and 12-bit
sub-pixel precision, has made the NVIDIA Quadro the most widely deployed
professional graphics solution in the industry .

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 3450 GPU, also introduced today, offers an excellent mix of
price and performance for customers looking to widely deploy a more
cost-effective solution. This single slot card also supports SLI Frame Rendering
mode, which allows the power of two of these cards to be combined in a single
system to drive a single high resolution display. It supports SLI Multi View
mode as well, which allows users to pair any two NVIDIA Quadro FX PCI Express
boards in a workstation and drive up to four high resolution displays.

HP is offering both of the latest NVIDIA Quadro boards in the HP xw9300 and HP
xw4300 Workstations. “HP is committed to providing customers with
high-performance availability for their professional graphics needs, while
delivering impressive scalability, performance and reliability,” said Will Wade,
workstations product manager at HP. “We work closely with the NVIDIA
Professional Solutions Group to help ensure our customers have the most advanced
graphics solutions available.”

The NVIDIA Quadro boards are now available widely through leading OEMs,
including HP, leading workstation system integrators, including Alienware and
BOXX Technologies, and NVIDIA channel partners PNY Technologies (US and EMEA),
Leadtek (APAC), and Elsa (Japan). For more information on this and the full
