PNY has announced three new 3D graphics cards based on NVidia’s PCI Express-based Quadro graphics chips.
The new PCI Express standard delivers 8Gb/sec bi-directional bus bandwidth, double the rate of the previous AGP8x technology. It also delivers faster processing power for professional 2D and 3D applications.
The top-end PNY Quadro FX 3400 is equipped with 256MB of high-speed G-DDR3 memory. PNY claims that this enables the largest, most graphically intensive models to be displayed interactively at the highest resolutions with full scene anti-aliasing. It features a Shader Model 3.0, 32-bit floating-point frame buffer and is suitable for power graphics users.
The mid range PNY Quadro FX 1300 features 128MB of DDR memory to power high-resolution digital or analogue displays. It also features advanced vertex and pixel programmability to stimulate a wide range of physical effects and surface properties.
The entry-level PNY Quadro FX 330 includes 64MB of high-speed DDR memory and supports dual DVI display outputs.
