NVIDIA Quadro FX 600 PCI
NVIDIA Quadro FX features for professional imaging

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 600 PCI is architected for imaging and scientific applications including geospatial, mapping, GIS, and others that require full OpenGL 3D application performance for expanded screen real estate and resolution. The NVIDIA Quadro FX 600 PCI offers all the NVIDIA Quadro FX performance, features, and quality on a PCI-32 bus implementation. Featuring 256MB of on-board DDR graphics memory, dual digital display connectors, and a 3-pin stereo connector, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 600 PCI is the industry’s most complete solution for extended visualization.

Versatility and Flexibility
The NVIDIA Quadro FX 600 PCI enables a wide range of solutions when paired with most AGP 8X-based NVIDIA Quadro products in the same system:

  • Armed with the two additional single-link DVI-I outputs of the NVIDIA Quadro FX 600 PCI, a system can drive up to four CRTs or flat panel displays (two by two separate environments) or two 9.2 million pixel displays with dual-link inputs.
  • Using full support for OpenGL quad-buffered stereo and its stereo connector, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 600 PCI can drive multiple stereo displays for immersive environments or for a mix of stereo and standard resolutions.
  • Applications leveraging the 256MB of frame buffer memory allow the user to roam large textures, zoom/pan areas of interest selected on the AGP-based display, or visualize and explore 2D slices selected on 3D models, from medical modalities to geophysical datasets.
Pair NVIDIA Quadro FX 600 PCI with the following cards: Supported Implementation
NVIDIA Quadro FX 3000G x
NVIDIA Quadro FX 3000 x
NVIDIA Quadro FX 1100 x
NVIDIA Quadro FX 1000 x
NVIDIA Quadro FX 700 x
Up to 3 additional Quadro FX 600 PCI-based cards x
The NVIDIA Quadro FX 600 PCI can also be implemented in multiple instances—up to four cards—in the same system to provide compact, cost-effective, and scalable desktop visualization solutions. With support for Microsoft Windows as well as Linux operating systems, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 600 PCI can also be deployed in a server environment as an advanced console for visualization.

Programmability and Quality
The NVIDIA Quadro FX 600 PCI provides full support for OpenGL1.5, DirectX 9.0 (Pixel/Vertex Shader 2.0) programmability, and high-level shader languages, thus enabling sophisticated real-time shaders that simulate a virtually unlimited range of physical characteristics and surface properties.

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 600 PCI features the industry’s only true 128-bit floating-point graphics pipeline for stunning visual quality, the highest degree of accuracy, millions of colors in a broad dynamic range. An industry leading 12 bits of subpixel precision ensure the elimination of sparkles, cracks, and other rasterization anomalies.
