VISUALIZATION BEYOND 3D
Whether searching for and extracting oil, designing and bringing the
next luxury vehicle to market, or providing a diagnosis of a patient’s
condition, professionals are faced with a mountain of data that needs
to be distilled into meaningful and actionable visualizations.
The size and complexity of data is growing at an
exponential rate. In an increasingly competitive
and high-pressure landscape, professionals
need to deliver results better, faster, and more
cost effectively than ever before. Traditional
processing paradigms just cannot keep up.
With advances in the GPU architecture,
the NVIDIA® Quadro® FX 5800 solution
gives geophysicists, designers, scientists,
engineers, and other technical professionals
visual supercomputing from their desktops.
Professional applications take advantage of the
Quadro FX 5800 solution’s advanced feature
set, including up to 4GB of frame buffer leading
to greater interactivity with large datasets,
providing the right set of tools to deliver results
that push visualization beyond traditional 3D.
level of interactivity by enabling unprecedented
programmability and precision. The industry’s
leading workstation applications leverage these
capabilities to deliver hardware-accelerated
features, performance, and quality not found
in other professional graphics solutions. From
Quadro FX 5800, 5600, and 4800 at the ultrahigh-end, and Quadro FX 4600 and 3700 at
the high-end, through Quadro FX 1700 at the
mid-range, to Quadro FX 570 and 370 at the
entry-level, Quadro delivers the productivity you
need at every price.
The Quadro FX 5800 is the ultra high-end
solution in NVIDIA’s second generation unifiedarchitecture professional product offerings
delivering up to 50% increased performance
over the first generation through 240 processor
cores. The entire Quadro family takes
professional visualization applications to a new

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
4 GB GDDR3 GPU Memory with ultra
fast memory bandwidth
Industry’s first 4 GB GPU memory and massive memory bandwidth up to
102GBps 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).
NVIDIA® CUDA™ parallel
computing processor
A parallel computing processor architecture exposed through a C language
environment and tool suite in combination with high performance visualization,
CUDA unleashes new capabilities to solve highly complex challenges such as
real-time ray tracing, video encoding, and interactive volume rendering.
Highest Color Fidelity
10-bit per component color fidelity enables billions rather than millions of
color variations for rich, vivid image quality with the broadest dynamic range.
Single DisplayPort Digital
Display Connectors
DisplayPort support ultra-high-resolution panels (up to 2560 x 1600)-which
result in amazing image quality producing detailed photorealistic images.
Dual Dual-Link Digital
Display Connectors
Dual dual-link TMDS transmitters support ultra-high-resolution panels (up
to 2560 x 1600 @ 60Hz on each panel) —which result in amazing image quality
producing detailed photorealistic images.
Quad Buffered Stereo
Offers enhanced visual experience for professional applications that demand
stereo viewing capability.
nvidia® SLI® Technology
A revolutionary platform innovation that enables professional users to
dynamically scale graphics performance, enhance image quality, and expand
display real estate.
