PNY VCS1000-04-PB NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600 3GB graphics card

Features
Benefits
512MB – 1.5GB GDDR Frame Buffer per
GPU
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). (1GB per GPU available on Model I and III; 512MB per GPU
available on Model II, 1.5GB Available on Model IV)
Breakthrough Visual Compute Density
Unmatched graphics compute per cubic centimeter provides highest visual compute
density enabling breakthrough levels of capability and productivity.
Flexible Form Factor
Compact design can be easily deployed in a desktop workspace or can be transformed to
fit any standard 19” 3U rack environment.
Frame Lock/Genlock
Also known as “house sync.” Genlock allows the graphics output to synchronize to an
external source, typical for film and broadcast video applications.
Frame Synchronization
Allows the display channels from multiple workstations to be synchronized, thus creating
one large “virtual display” that can be driven by a multisystem cluster for performance
scalability. (Model I, II and IV only)
Full-Scene Antialiasing (FSAA)
Up to 64× SLI FSAA on Model IV and 32× SLI FSAA on Models I, II and III dramatically
reduces visual aliasing artifacts or jaggies, resulting in highly realistic scenes.
GPU Computing for Visualization
An innovative combination of GPU computing features, with NVIDIA® CUDA™ technology,
that is accessible through a standard C language unleashing entirely new capabilities to
solve complex, data intensive challenges. (Model IV only)
2 to 8 Dual-Link Digital Display Connectors
Full dual-link TMDS transmitters support ultra-high-resolution panels (up to 3840 x 2400
@ 24Hz on each panel) —which result in amazing image quality producing detailed
photorealistic images. (Up to 8 on Model II, 4 on Model I and IV, and 2 on Model III)
NVIDIA Unified Architecture
Industry’s first unified architecture designed to dynamically allocate compute, geometry,
shading and pixel processing power to deliver optimized GPU performance. (Model IV only)
Ultra Quiet Design
Sub 40db delivers acoustics lower than most desktop workstations to maintain a quiet and
productive environment.
Unified Driver Architecture (UDA)
The NVIDIA UDA guarantees forward and backward compatibility with all applications.
Uncompressed 8-, 10-, or 12-Bit SDI Output
(Model III only)
The programmable GPU architecture and the NVIDIA Quadro SDI specific graphic user
interface enable configurability of: video channels, color space conversion, and gamma
correction.
A video backend unit provides full support for outputs in 2K, HD, and SD SMPTE formats
through 4 video channels with support for either 4 distinct channels of fill or 2 channel of fill
and 2 channel of key.

Utilized as a single VCS node (two NVIDIA
Quadro Plex VCSs connected to a single
certified SLI-capable system) the power
of up to eight GPUs can be scaled in 3U
of rack space to deliver the power and
capability required by even the most
