The nVIDIA Quadro 600 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. The card features a Dual-Link DVI output and a DisplayPort output, each of which can drive a high-resolution digital display. It ships with a low-profile bracket attached, but can also be installed in a standard chassis using the included full height bracket.

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.
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.

      Comments about PNY Technologies nVIDIA Quadro 600 Display Card:

      I use this primarily for Photography (PS/Lightroom), to drive two monitors (in dual monitor configuration in Windows). Aside from the fact that the backplane on this card is half-length (and I had to man handle it to flatten it out to fit), it works perfectly. Otherwise, this is a great card for the price.

I was surprised as to the difference that this card made for editing DSLR footage (transcoded to DNX HD 115) on an older version of Avid. YOU CAN NOT BEAT THIS CARD FOR THE PRICE!

                      If you looking for a 3d graphic card for working a 3d content.
                      If you want a stable& less problem about driver.
                      The performance of this card as same GT440 on gaming but when you working you get a better performance than GT580.
                      Ps: For who use in normal case you need a tool to change back panel because default 's low profile card.

                          I use it for small CAD projects and Photoshop. Microsoft performance rated this card at 6.6 under Windows 7. I have a Quadro FX 1500 under Vista that is rated at 3.6. 40w usage, so no extra power connector needed. Comes with low profile adapter and I changed it to an enclosed full height adapter. Needed 1.6mm phillips screwdriver as it was hard to get the holding screw out. Great improvement. Though it is not a Quadro 6000, it is not expensive. Excellent entry level Professional workstation card.
