PNY has launched a half-price upgrade offer for the Quadro FX 700, valid across Europe. Under the terms of the offer, customers can purchase the FX 700 for only £218 plus VAT (or €325 plus VAT) if they return any NVIDIA Workstation Quadro graphics board.

The Quadro FX 700 is a remarkably quiet mid-range, workstation-class graphics card aimed at the professional market. Awarded the Digit Best Buy award, it offers quality output, excellent redraw and render times, though it does require extra power from your computer’s power supply (a PSU of 350 Watts).

The FX 700 has a true 128-bit floating-point graphics pipeline, 12 bits of sub pixel precision and full support for OpenGL 1.5 and DirectX 9.0. It carries 128 MB of DDR SDRAM with 256-bit memory bandwith, one DVI-I and one VGA output connectors, and one DVI-I to VGA adapter.

According to PNY, in order to qualify you need to return your Quadro graphics board (including Elsa Gloria and Synergy professional boards) with a valid serial number to a PNY dealer or distributor by August 31 with a completed upgrade form. Full details and forms are available from the PNY Europe Web site.
