Video Cards - Quadro FX 1700

Quadro FX 1700 types

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700 GPU offers remarkable performance at the best price that many 3D designer professionals can applaud. The unit features state-of-the-art unified architecture, making it possible to dynamically assign the geometry, shading, and determine the power required for optimized performance. It is still one of the highly-rated graphic cards in the market for its high energy efficiency.

Optimized Performance

The Quadro FX 1700 graphics card is best known for its performance optimization through unified architecture. This is one of NVIDIA's leading technologies that allows the GPUs to allocate geometry, shading, and pixel processing power on the fly. It is this optimized performance that makes the unit energy-efficient while still delivering optimal performance.

High-Performance Display Outputs

The GPU features dual-link TMDS transmitters that support ultra-high-resolution of up to 2560 x 1600 at 60Hz. The result is you get photorealistic images on your display monitor. The graphics card can drive up to two displays at the same resolution. It is capable of driving two internal analog displays with a resolution of 2948 x 1536 at 85Hz. Thanks to its internal 400 MHz digital to analog converters.

On the same topic, let us mention the full-scene antialiasing capability. You will not experience any jaggies with these GPUs, and the result will always be more realistic scenes.

Form Factor and Bus Type

As usual, you need to know the size of any attached devices before buying them. The NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700 has a form factor of ATX and uses the PCIe x16 physical bus. It also features 512 DDR2 SDRAM, giving it enough throughput needed by most of the design applications. These might not be the kind of specifications you would expect in other high-end GPUs but are worth the price of this unit. Also, remember that this is one of the earliest graphic cards launched one and half a decade ago.

Budgeting for GPU Upgrade

If you need to accomplish your 3D design tasks faster, then you will need a high-performing GPU. Quadro FX 1700 is referred to as an entry-level graphics card with many limitations for some workload-heavy applications. It is okay if you are beginning with it because it will save you money, but you can think of an upgrade.
