Product Overview

The Quadro FX 4800 ultra-high-end solution is now available for the Mac Pro, giving digital artists, architects, designers, medical, scientific, technical and other professionals the right set of tools to deliver results that push the realms of visualization. With Boot Camp, users can experience the full features and accelerated performance of native Quadro 3D graphics when running professional Windows applications. Designed, tested, and built by NVIDIA for the Mac Pro, Quadro FX 4800 gives professionals the visual supercomputing power that they require from their desktops.

Quadro FX 4800 for Mac delivers ultra-fast performance and realistic effects, enabling industry-leading applications to visualize and solve the world’s most demanding digital content creation, 3D design, and scientific challenges. Along with superb graphics the innovative NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing architecture for Quadro GPUs enables breakthrough performance in areas such as interactive ray tracing, finite element analysis, and computational fluid dynamics.

1.5GB GDDR3 GPU memory with ultra fast memory bandwidth

  • Massive 1.5GB frame buffer and memory bandwidth up to 76.8GB/sec delivers high throughput for interactive visualization of large models and high performance for real-time processing of large textures and frames and enables the highest quality and resolution full-scene antialiasing (FSAA).

    NVIDIA CUDA™ parallel computing processor

  • A parallel computing processor architecture exposed through a C language environment and tool suite in combination with high performance visualization, CUDA unleashes new capabilities to solve highly complex challenges such as real-time ray tracing, video encoding, and interactive volume rendering.

    128-Bit Precision Graphics Pipeline

  • Enables sophisticated mathematical computations to maintain high accuracy, resulting in unmatched visual quality. Full IEEE 32-bit floating-point precision per color component (RGBA) delivers millions of color variations with the broadest dynamic range.

    64-Bit Floating Point Precision

  • Sets new standards for image clarity and quality through 64-bit floating point capabilities in shading, filtering, texturing, and blending. Enables unprecedented rendered image quality for visual effects processing.

    Advanced Color Compression, Early Z-Cull

  • Improved pipeline color compression and early z-culling to increase effective bandwidth and improve rendering efficiency and performance.

    Full-Scene Antialiasing (FSAA)

  • Up to 32x FSAA dramatically reduces visual aliasing artifacts or “jaggies” resulting in highly realistic scenes.

    Hardware-Accelerated Pixel Read-Back

  • Up to 2.4GB/sec pixel read-back performance delivers massive host throughput.

    High-Performance Display Outputs

  • 400MHz RAMDACs and two dual-link DVI digital connectors drive the highest resolution digital displays available on the market.

    8K Texture and Render Processing

  • The ability to texture from and render to 8K x 8K surfaces. Beneficial for applications that demand the highest resolution and quality image processing. Next-Generation Vertex and Pixel Programmability Shader Model 4.0 Reference standard for Shader model 4.0 enabling a higher level of performance and realistic effects for OpenGL and next generation DirectX 10 (via Boot Camp) industry-leading professional applications.

    NVIDIA® PureVideo® HD Technology

  • PureVideo technology is the combination of high-definition video processors and software that delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for SD and HD video content. Features include, high-quality scaling, spatial temporal de-interlacing, inverse telecine, and high quality HD video playback from Blu-ray discs.

    NVIDIA Unified GPU Architecture

  • Industry’s first unified architecture designed to dynamically allocate compute, geometry, shading and pixel processing power to deliver optimized GPU performance.

    PCI Express 2.0 Compliant

  • Doubles the data transfer rate up to 5 GT/sec per lane for an aggregate bandwidth of 16 GB/sec bi-directional (8 GB/sec in each direction).

    Accelerated Performance for Microsoft Windows Applications

  • Experience full, native Quadro 3D features and application performance when using Boot Camp to run Windows on a Mac Pro.

    Ultra Quiet Design

  • Engineered to deliver high performance with low acoustics for a quiet desktop environment.
