High-end graphics board from Nvidia boasts 4 GB frame memory

PARSIPPANY, N.J.- PNY Technologies announced its new ultra high-performance graphic boards, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 by PNY and NVIDIA Quadro FX 4800 by PNY. The 5800, the company says, is “the most powerful professional graphics board in graphics history.”

Both of the scalable GPU accelerated solutions are available in Genlock/framelock and HD-SDI versions. Based on NVIDIA's second generation unified architecture, and offering up to 4GB GPU memory, which NVIDIA says is an industry-first, they are designed to handle massive datasets and specialized needs for the Visualization & Simulation, Oil & Gas Exploration and Broadcast & Film markets.

“GraphStream is pleased to work together with PNY and NVIDIA to launch a new generation of innovative platforms based on the NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 by PNY,” said Craig Dunwoody, CEO, GraphStream Incorporated. “Relative to previous platforms, we are offering improvements of up to 200% – 400% in the performance and capacity of the GPUs. This will bring dramatic efficiency gains to a wide range of technical-computing applications.”

“With its enormous 4GB frame buffer and high performance, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 SDI by PNY provides GPU-centric applications like ASSIMILATE's SCRATCH with immediate benefits and huge potential going forward,” said Jeff Edson, president and CEO, ASSIMILATE.

“By combining advanced visualization and computational performance, these latest additions to the NVIDIA Quadro FX ultra high-end professional graphics board family enable our partners to deliver next generation solutions for large scale clusters, aerospace image generators, tiled wall displays, high-definition projection, as well as film and broadcast applications,” said Jeff Medeiros, senior business development manager, PNY Technologies.

The new line up includes:
— NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 by PNY: Offering the industry's first 4 GB of graphics memory and massive memory bandwidth of up to 102 GB per second and 240 CUDA(TM) programmable parallel cores, the Quadro FX 5800 by PNY is the most powerful professional graphics board in graphics history, the company says.
— NVIDIA Quadro FX 4800 by PNY: Features a large 1.5 GB frame buffer with 76.8GB/sec memory bandwidth. It delivers a second-generation NVIDIA unified architecture GPU delivering up to 50% increased performance over first generation products through 192 processor cores. Both ultra high performance graphics boards are available in a:
— Genlock/frame lock version: capabilities provide the functionality required for advanced multi-system visualization environments.
— SDI version: Delivering uncompressed SDI output in 2K, HD or SD format, these graphics boards are the ultimate HD-SDI “live-to-air” Broadcast and Film solution.

Other features include: Interactive 4D modeling with time lapse capabilities; true 10-bit color enabling billions rather than millions of color variations for rich, vivid image quality with the broadest dynamic range; NVIDIA SLI(TM) technology for improved graphics performance; dual DisplayPort support for ultra-high resolution panels (up to 2560 x 1600); quad buffered stereo connector; dual-link DVI-I display connectivity; NVIDIA PureVideo(TM) HD technology for outstanding picture clarity, smooth video playback, and accurate color and precise image scaling for SD and HD content; and full Shader Model 4.0 and DirectX 10 capability support as well as full industry-standard OpenGL 2.1 support for Windows or Linux.
