NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500 Key Features and Benefits
Highest Workstation Application
Next-generation architecture enables over 2x improvement in geometry and fill rates with the
industry’s highest performance for professional CAD, DCC, and visualization applications.
Unmatched Color Precision
Full 128-bit precision graphics pipeline enables sophisticated mathematical computations to
maintain high accuracy, resulting in unmatched visual quality. Full IEEE 32-bit floating-point
precision per color component (RGBA) delivers millions of color variations with the broadest
dynamic range.
Next-Generation Vertex and Pixel
NVIDIA Quadro FX GPUs introduce infinite length vertex programs and dynamic flow control,
removing the previous limits on complexity and structure of shader programs. With full support
for Vertex and Shader Model 3.0, NVIDIA Quadro FX GPUs deliver sophisticated effects never
before imagined for real-time graphics systems.
Unparalleled Subpixel Precision
12-bit subpixel precision delivers high geometric accuracy, eliminating spreckles, cracks, and
other rasterization anomalies.
Hardware-Accelerated Pixel Read-Back
Greater than 2.4GB/sec., pixel read-back performance delivers massive host throughput, more
that 10x the performance of previous generation graphics systems.
Rotated Grid FSAA (FSAA)
RG FSAA sampling algorithm introduces far greater sophistication in the sampling pattern,
significantly increasing color accuracy and visual quality for edges and lines, reducing
“jaggies” while maintaining performance.
High Precision Dynamic Range Imaging
(HPDR) technology
Sets new standards for image clarity and quality through floating point capabilities in shading,
filtering, texturing, and blending. Enables unprecedented rendered image quality for visual
effects processing.
NVIDIA PureVideo Technology
NVIDIA® PureVideo™ technology is the combination of high-definition video processors and
software that delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise
image scaling for SD and HD video content. Features include, high-quality scaling, spatial
temporal de-interlacing, inverse telecine, and high quality HD video playback from DVD.
Dual Dual-Link Digital Display
Dual 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
NVIDIA SLI Technology
NVIDIA SLI technology enables dynamically scalable graphics performance, enhanced image
quality, and expanded display real-estate.
