Large memory Quadros break cover
Despite Leadtek apparently pulling out of the graphics board market, with Foxconn taking things over, there's a couple of brand new Quadro FXs on display on their stand. The first is the Quadro FX 5500, sporting G71 and 1GiB of 525MHz GDDR3 framebuffer and dual dual-link DVI outputs. Being G71 it's NVIDIA's most advanced, feature rich and performance laden single-GPU Quadro yet created. Think about it largely as just the FX 4500 but with 1GiB of framebuffer memory.
And speaking of the GPU count, there's now a 'GX2' equivalent. Seemingly created using the older revision of the dual-GPU boards first seen with the Dell-driven Quad SLI, the new Quadro FX 4500 X2 can be paired up with another for four-GPU Quadro running. Each one sports 1GiB (512MiB per GPU) of memory, two G71 GPUs, two power connectors and dual dual-link DVI outputs per GPU, just like the FX 5500. Obligatory pictures follow.
