Specifications

Here are the specifications of the NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 and the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4800, compared to their predecessors, the Quadro FX 5600 and the Quadro FX 4600.

Like all current graphics cards, the two new Quadro FX cards support PCI Express 2.0. They also support 10-bit and 12-bit colour outputs, allowing for 1.07 billion colours. Of course, you will need to pair them with professional LCD monitors to achieve that kind of colour accuracy and gradient. They also support 64-bits level of precision.

 

New Price List

The new NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 will be priced at a nose-bleeding price point of US$ 3499. For that price, you get the equivalent of a GeForce GTX 280 graphics card with 4GB memory and the Quadro software optimizations enabled.

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 4800, on the other hand, is priced at "just" US$ 1999. NVIDIA, of course, believes this is a pittance for well-endowed members of the engineering and scientific community.

This brings down the prices of the older NVIDIA Quadro graphics cards, so if you are looking for bargains, that's good news! Otherwise, you will have to try modding your GeForce into a Quadro...
