Product Highlights
  • Dual-Link DVI + DisplayPort + DisplayPort
  • 1GB GDDR5 RAM
  • PCI Express 2.0 x16
  • CUDA Support
  • HDCP Compliance
  • Windows & Linux Compatibility

The nVIDIA Quadro 2000 Display Card from PNY is a professional graphics card, compatible with Windows and Linux workstation computers. The card installs in an available PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot. It features a Dual-Link DVI output and two DisplayPort outputs, any of which can drive a high-resolution digital display.

The Quadro is designed to accelerate professional applications that are used to produce 3D graphics. Its CUDA Parallel Computing Architecture can be leveraged by many popular programming languages -- including C/C++ and Fortran. This allows you to create custom applications that are tightly integrated with the GPU.

GPU Features

Next-Generation nVIDIA CUDA Architecture
Breakthrough nVIDIA Fermi architecture incorporates CUDA parallel computing capabilities and advanced visualization to deliver performance that greatly accelerates professional workflows.
nVIDIA Scalable Geometry Engine
Scalable engines dramatically improve geometry performance across a broad range of CAD, DCC and medical applications, enabling you to work interactively with models and scenes that are an order of magnitude more complex than ever before.
Large Framebuffers with Ultra-Fast Bandwidth
Large GPU memory with fast bandwidth accelerates the display of complex models and scenes. It also performs complex computations on large datasets.
nVIDIA Parallel DataCache
Parallel DataCache supports a true cache hierarchy combined with on-chip shared memory. L1 and L2 caches drive exceptional throughput, accelerating features such as real-time ray tracing, physics and texture filtering.
nVIDIA GigaThread Engine
The GigaThread Engine provides up to ten times faster context switching compared to previous generation architectures, concurrent kernel execution, and improved thread block scheduling.
Fast 3D Texture Transfer
Fast transfer and manipulation of 3D textures results in more interactive visualization of large volumetric datasets.
Hardware 3D Window Clipping
Hardware accelerated clip regions (data transfer mechanism between a window and the frame buffer) improve overall graphics performance by increasing transfer speed between the color buffer and frame buffer.
Unified Driver Architecture (UDA)
The nVIDIA UDA guarantees forward and backward compatibility with software drivers. It simplifies upgrading to a new solution, as all Quadro products work with the same driver software.

Image Quality

Full-Scene Antialiasing (FSAA)
Up to 64x FSAA dramatically reduces visual aliasing artifacts or "jaggies," resulting in unparalleled image quality and highly realistic scenes.
GPU Tessellation with Shader Model 5.0
Quadro Tessellation Engine automatically generates finely detailed geometry, for cinematic quality environments and scenes, without sacrificing performance.
16K Texture and Render Processing
The card boasts the ability to texture from and render to 16K x 16K surfaces -- beneficial for applications that demand the highest resolution and quality image processing.
nVIDIA High Precision High Dynamic Range (HDR) Technology
The Quadro sets new standards for image clarity and quality through floating point capabilities in shading, filtering, texturing, and blending. It enables unprecedented rendered image quality for visual effects processing.

Display Features

High-Quality Display Connectors
Use the card to drive ultra-high-resolution panels, producing phenomenal photorealistic image quality from a range of display connectors. It support two active connectors including, dual-link DVI with up to 3840 x 2400 at 24Hz on each panel, DisplayPort with up to up to 2560 x 1600, or HDMI for integrated audio and video through the GPU.
30-bit Color Fidelity
30-bit color fidelity (10-bits per color) enables billions rather than millions of color variations for rich, vivid image quality with the broadest dynamic range.
OpenGL Quad Buffered Stereo Support
OpenGL Quad Buffered Stereo offers professional applications the capability of smooth and immersive 3D Stereo experience.

Software Support

Programming the CUDA Parallel Computing Architecture
CUDA allows for general purpose GPU computing using standard programming languages like C/C++ and Fortran, and emerging APIs such as OpenCL and Direct Compute. This broad adoption of CUDA is accelerating techniques like ray tracing, video and image processing, and computation fluid dynamics.
Cg Programming
The programmable GPU leverages Cg high-level, open-standard shading language to enable the creation and integration of real-time photorealistic effects into 3D models, scenes and designs.
Microsoft Windows 7 Support
Take advantage of all the compelling features included with Windows 7, delivering unprecedented application performance, advanced visual realism, and premium reliability with superior application compatibility on mobile and desktop workstations.
Shader Model 5.0 Programmability
Infinite length vertex programs and dynamic flow control remove the previous limits on OpenGL and DirectX shader programs, delivering sophisticated effects never before imagined.
nVIDIA Graphics API Extensions
nVIDIA provides a set of extensions to standard graphics APIs for Linux and Windows, enabling applications to take maximum advantage of state-of-the-art GPU capabilities.
nVIDIA Application Acceleration Engines Support
Supercharge application performance and capabilities with highly optimized software modules, including SceniX and OptiX for advanced creative and investigative possibilities.
nVIDIA Mosaic Technology
nVIDIA Mosaic Technology enables transparent scaling of any application across up to 16 display channels, while delivering full performance.
nView Multi-Display Technology
The nVIDIA nView advanced Display Software delivers maximum flexibility for single-large display or multi-display options, providing unprecedented end-user control of the desktop experience for increased productivity.

            I got this board to use with an NEC PA271W-BK-SV for photo editing and processing and have 10 bit color. I researched both purchases a lot before I bought them and I have to say I've never really seen red on a computer monitor before now. Usually an orangey looking color even when color is specified at 255,0,0.
            I guess it's not much to look at, can't even see it actually, tucked away inside the computer case, but it sure works.

                This is NOT a card for gamers, it is professional graphic card for rendering. If you are using Adobe CS5 or CS5.5 - that's what you need. It supports Mercury Playback Engine. There are some other cards that support GPU too, but if you are working with HD rendering - consider a professional card.

                  Comments about PNY Technologies nVIDIA Quadro 2000 Display Card:

                  I purchased my computer from a name-brand company with an upgraded 1-GB video card almost two years ago. I have replaced the card twice on warranty since then, due to fan problems: first noisy, then seized. The fan on that last card started to get noisy, and even though I could get another one for free, I opted for this nVIDIA card as I am now working with video editing software.

                  I received the new card and it was apparent that my previous fan problems might be rooted in the size of the fan. The nVIDIA card fan is way bigger than the ones on my previous cards. Size does matter. It looks like I can take that new fan and cool my car with it.

                  I copied my desktop scheme to a document prior to replacing the card, as I like my shortcuts in certain places, prior to the card swap.

                  I easily swapped out the card, and started my computer. I followed the instructions, and started up my computer to be greeted with about a 1/4 of my old desktop enlarged by many degrees. I put the driver disk in one of my drives and installed the software and viola, there was my old desktop scheme, at the proper resolution, untouched! I didn't have to move them around to where they used to be.

                  So far, some graphics seem faster and so does the net. Some of my video programs don't seem any faster than with my old card. Some don't take advantage of the "mercury engine" even though their adverts seem to indicate they do.

                  All in all, with 3-yrs warranty, I hope this card outlasts my computer for the price. It is quieter than my old cards, too.

                  So far, it seems to be a good purchase.
