nVidia Quadro FX 5500 PCI-E x16, 1GB GDDR2 GRAPHICS CARD
3D graphics solution for CAD, DCC, and visualization applications

NVIDIA Quadro FX 5500 graphics boards are the industry's highest performance professional graphics solution for extreme CAD, DCC, and visualization applications.

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 5500shatters performance limits facing CAD, DCC, and visualization applications. Armed with a radically new graphics architecture engineered to address the most demanding challenges, NVIDIA Quadro FX 5500 delivers 33.6GB/sec. memory bandwidth and a 256-bit memory interface with support for 1024MB of ultra-fast GDDR2 memory. Featuring two dual-link DVI connectors, NVIDIA Quadro FX 5500 offers the industry's best image quality at resolutions up to 3840 x 2400.

Key Features and Benefits

Highest Workstation Application Performance
Next-generation architecture enables over 2x improvement in geometry and fill rates with the industry's highest performance for professional CAD, DCC, and visualization applications.

1024MB Ultra-Fast GDDR2
Delivers high throughput for interactive visualization of large models and high-performance for real-time processing of large textures and frames and enables the highest quality and resolution full-scene antialiasing (FSAA).

Unmatched Color Precision
Full 128-bit precision graphics pipeline enables sophisticated mathematical computations to maintain high accuracy, resulting in unmatched visual quality. Full IEEE 32-bit floating-point precision per color component (RGBA) delivers millions of color variations with the broadest dynamic range.

Next-Generation Vertex and Pixel Programmability
NVIDIA Quadro FX GPUs introduce infinite length vertex programs and dynamic flow control, removing the previous limits on complexity and structure of shader programs. With full support for Vertex and Shader Model 3.0, NVIDIA Quadro FX GPUs deliver sophisticated effects never before imagined for real-time graphics systems.

Unparalleled Subpixel Precision
12-bit subpixel precision delivers high geometric accuracy, eliminating spreckles, cracks, and other rasterization anomalies.

Hardware-Accelerated Pixel Read-Back
Greater than 2.4GB/Sec., pixel read-back performance delivers massive host throughout, more than 10x the performance of previous generation graphics systems.

Rotated Grid Full Screen Antialiasing (RG FSAA)
RG FSAA sampling algorithm introduces far greater sophistication in the sampling pattern, significantly increasing color accuracy and visual quality for edges and lines, reducing "jaggies" while maintaining performance.

High Precision Dynamic Range Imaging (HPDR) Technology
Sets new standards for image clarity and quality through floating point capabilities in shading, filtering, texturing, and blending. Enables unprecedented rendered image quality for visual effects processing.

NVIDIA PureVideo Technology
NVIDIA PureVideo technology is the combination of high-definition video processors and software that delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for SD and HD video content. Features include high-quality scaling, spatial temporal de-interlacing, inverse telecine, and high quality HD video playback from DVD.

Dual Dual-Link Digital Display Connectors
Two dual-link TMDS transmitters support ultra high resolution panels (up to 3840 x 2400 at 24Hz on each panel) - resulting in amazing image quality and detailed photorealistic images.

NVIDIA SLI Technology
NVIDIA SLI technology enables dynamically scalable graphics performance, enhanced image quality, and expanded display real estate.
