  • CUDA Support
  • HDCP Compliance
  • PCI Express 2.0 x16
  • Windows & Linux Compatibility

The nVIDIA Quadro 400 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 x 16 slot. It features a Dual-Link DVI output and one DisplayPort output, either of which can drive a high-resolution digital display. Plus, with the included DVI-DL to VGA adapter, you can connect the card to a VGA monitor. The card can also connect to HDMI 1.3 compliant displays; however, you will need to purchase a separately sold adapter.

The Quadro is designed to accelerate graphics performance in games and professional computer-aided design or manufacturing applications beyond what consumer-grade graphics cards can do. Its CUDA Parallel Computing Architecture can be leveraged by many popular programming languages -- including C/C++ and Fortran, as well as the advanced Application Programming Interfaces, OpenCL and Direct Compute. This allows you to create custom applications that are tightly integrated with the GPU. In addition, this card can support up to two displays at once, affording you greater visual space for graphic design or to manage your desktop.

While designed for professional performance, this display card is power-efficient, consuming no more than 32W of power. As such, it can fit in many different workstations without overtaxing the computer system. The card fits into a PCIe x 16 expansion slot in your workstation computer and is a budget friendly upgrade.

GPU

nVIDIA CUDA Parallel Computing Architecture
Breakthrough nVIDIA CUDA parallel computing architecture tightly integrates advanced visualization and compute features delivering performance that greatly accelerates professional workflows.
nVIDIA GigaThread Engine
Provides up to 10x faster context switching compared to previous generation architectures, concurrent kernel execution, and improved thread block scheduling.
Hardware 3D Window Clipping
Hardware accelerated clip regions enable faster data transfer between a window and the frame buffer to improve overall graphics performance.
Unified Driver Architecture (UDA)
The nVIDIA UDA guarantees forward and backward compatibility with software drivers. Simplifies upgrading to a new solution because all Quadro products work with the same driver software.

        Comments about PNY Technologies nVIDIA Quadro 400 Display Card:

        The Quadro 400 arrived in perfect condition.
        Installation took about 15 minutes. The reboot was all that was needed. After checking the device status it reported the device is functioning properly. Cured previous graphics issues. Meets Siemens NX Cad software requirements.
