NVIDIA launches a Quadro 400 Posted on 06/04/2011 at 11:56 by Damien
Following Sapphire, it’s over to NVIDIA to recycle an old GPU, this time in the form of a pro graphics card. The new Quadro 400 is thus based on a small GT216 GPU and is similar to the GeForce GT 220 DDR3 but with a memory bus reduced from 128 bits to 64 bits. This is an ultra low-end solution, with just 48 processing units, the main interest of which will be that it can access Quadro drivers for a little under €150.
Although NVIDIA doesn’t mention the GPU clock, the 512 MB DDR3 is clocked at 770 MHz for a memory bandwidth of 11.5 Gib/s. Entry level and low profile, it has a DVI out and a DisplayPort out. We should also say that it’s a DirectX 10.1 generation GPU and doesn’t support the latest graphics developments.
