NVIDIA Quadro FX 4800 GPU was launched in 2008 as a desktop workstation graphics card. This unit is manufactured through the 55nm technology and features 192 CUDA cores, 64 texture mapping units, 24 ROPs, and 1.5GB of GDDR3 memory. It has a memory clock speed of 800MHz and a processor speed of 602HZ. The memory is interfaced through a 384-bit bus, and the unit attaches to the PCI-express 2.0 slots on the motherboard. Together, this GPU can deliver up to 76.8GBps bandwidth. These specifications adapt the graphics processing unit to gaming and 3D graphics applications.
Most of the 3D graphics applications on desktop workstations require high performance from the GPU. If you are a designer, then you can testify that using a better graphical processing unit can save your time and boost your productivity. Being a feature-rich card, Quadro FX 4800 can meet the minimum thresholds of many applications. Of importance are the high throughput and high-performance display. With 8K texture filtering and high-speed rendering, all the tasks will be completed instantly.
You can scale up the performance of NVIDIA Quadro FX 4800 GPU by dynamically cascading two units to act as one. When buying new cards, you have to anticipate the future. If you require more GPU power to run your applications, you don't have to perform a complete overhaul. You can also scale up the image quality and rendering capability through the same technique.
The Quadro FX4800 has two DisplayPort and one dual-link DVI-I. If you use the DisplayPort and dual-link DVI-I connectors, you can have 2560 x 1600 digital resolution. But if you use a DVI to VGA adapter, then you will get a lower resolution of 2048 x 1536 analog resolution. This property also enables you to use different monitor models.
