Nvidia introduces new Quadro GPU for professional applications
Press release, April 7; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Thursday 7 April 2011]

Nvidia has announced Quadro 400 GPU, a new professional graphics solution that puts the power of the GPU in the hands of designers and engineers.

Built for use with professional applications, such as Autodesk AutoCAD, the Nvidia Quadro 400 GPU provides up to five times faster performance over high-end consumer gaming cards. It also gives up to 10 times improvement when running CAD/CAM applications.

Priced at US$169, the Quadro 400 GPU also offers excellent power efficiency, consuming less than 35W, and its low-profile footprint means it offers the flexibility to fit into any workstation, including small form-factor systems.

With 512MB of DDR3 memory, the Quadro 400 processor enables professionals to interact with a wide range of design models. It also provides high visual fidelity, featuring a 30-bit (10-bits per color) color engine with a dynamic range of over one billion color variations. The Quadro 400 drivers are optimized and certified on leading professional applications.

Additional features of the new Quadro 400 GPU include: unified driver architecture – guarantees forward and backward compatibility with professional application software drivers, and simplifies upgrading to a new solution; hardware 3D window clipping – accelerated clip regions enable faster data transfer between a window and the frame buffer to improve overall graphics performance; high-quality display connectivity – drives ultra-high-resolution panels, producing phenomenal image quality, supporting two active connectors, including dual-link DVI with up to 3840 by 2400 resolution at 24Hz on each panel, and DisplayPort (DP) with up to 2560 by 1600 resolution.

Nvidia's Mosaic Technology also enhances workspace across up to eight displays (using one card per two displays), enabling seamless taskbar spanning, as well as transparent scaling of any application. Works over multiple displays or a single high-resolution display, and with Nvidia nView desktop management software.

The Nvidia Quadro 400 processor also supports 3D Vision and 3D Vision Pro active shutter glasses 3D technology that delivers crystal-clear, stereoscopic 3D visualization for the most immersive 3D experience, ranging from desktop workstations to collaborative work spaces.

The Quadro 400 is available immediately for the HP Z800, Z600, and Z400 Workstations, and for all Fujitsu Celsius workstations. It will be available soon on select Lenovo ThinkStation D20, C20, S20 and E30 models. It is also available from Nvidia Quadro channel partners including PNY Technologies in North America and Europe, ELSA in Japan, and Leadtek in Asia Pacific.
