Nvidia has introduced its latest workstation-class graphics chip, the Quadro FX 4000.
Essentially an overclocked version of the previous top-end Quadro FX 3000, the 4000 bumps the triangle processing rate to 133m each second, a 33 per cent increase on the 3000's 100m per second rate, and ups the fill rate 41 per cent to 4.5bn texels per second, from 3.2bn.
Both chips support up to 256MB of GDDR 3 SDRAM across a 256-bit bus. But the 4000's memory bandwidth of 32GBps yields a memory clock set to 1GHz, up from the 3000G's 850MHz
The Quadro FX 4000 will ship next month on boards from workstation graphics card makers PNY, Leadtek and Elsa, and will be bundled by HP.
