Introduction
The size and complexity of data is growing at an exponential rate. 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. In an increasingly competitive and
high-pressure landscape, these 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'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.
The Quadro FX 5800 is the ultra high-end solution in NVIDIA's second generation unified-architecture 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 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.
Performance and Features
4 GB GDDR3 GPU Memory with ultra fast memory bandwidth: This is the industry's first 4GB GPU Memory card with
massive memory bandwidth up to 102GB/sec. that 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.
Single DisplayPort Digital Display Connectors: DisplayPort supports 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 3840 x 2400 @ 24Hz on each panel) --which result in amazing image quality producing detailed photorealistic
images.
NVIDIA® SLI® Technology: A revolutionary platform innovation that enables professional users to dynamically scale
graphics performance, enhance image quality, and expand display real estate.
NVIDIA® SLI® Multi OS: Allows a user to run multiple Windows or Linux workstation environments from a single
system, with each Operating System directly assigned to a Quadro graphics solution.
Quad Buffered Stereo: Offers enhanced visual experience for professional applications that demand stereo viewing
capability.
*Paired with NVIDIA Quadro® G-Sync (available from a 3rd party) option delivers Frame lock/Genlock functionality for
unprecedented levels of realism, visualization and collaborative capabilities
*NVIDIA Quadro® SDI (available from a 3rd party) is the industry-leading integrated graphics-to-video solution for broadcast
and video professionals that delivers high performance graphics to uncompressed 12-bit HD SDI, enabling a direct
connection to broadcast equipment.
*Integrated in NVIDIA Quadro® Plex Visual Computing System (available from a 3rd party) delivers a quantum leap in visual
computing, enabling breakthrough levels of capability and productivity from a high density, industry standards-based
architecture
