PNY Technologies 3800 overview

  • 1Description

The nVIDIA Quadro FX 3800 SDI PCI-E Graphics Card from PNY Technologies is a graphics card designed for professional video production environments. Utilizing 1GB GDDR3 graphics memory, the SDI enabled card is capable of handling high-intensity video production with ease. With a number of nVIDIA APIs and technologies at its disposal, the card is more than capable of rendering stunning images quickly. In addition to the SDI ports, the card has two DisplayPort ports compatible with DVI or HDMI adapters, for versatile connection options.

Uncompressed 8-, 10-, or 12-Bit SDI Output
Enables on-air broadcast, video production and post production professionals to composite and output live video and graphics to true, uncompressed 12-bit SDI in 2K, SD, or HD resolutions and allows direct connection to a broadcast monitor, switcher, tape deck, or SDI projector.
Ancillary Data Support
Support for ancillary data channel (for audio, time code, etc) through an nVIDIA API. Support for the introduction of ancillary data into the outgoing SDI video is provided through an nVIDIA API. This ancillary data can include up to 16 channels of embedded 24-bit digital audio as defined by SMPTE 272M and SMPTE 299M as well as timecode.
2D Video Pass Through Compositing
2D Video Compositing enables incoming video to be passed through and alpha composited, luma keyed, or chroma keyed with the Quadro rendered graphics image on the outgoing SDI video.
Genlock (House Synchronization)
One genlock (Standard BNC) connector (digital or analog) provides connectivity to a video sync source for SMPTE standard (digital, black burst, tri-level) synchronization. Expanded cross sync functionality permits an incoming house signal to synchronize a much larger number of video output signal formats.
Flicker Filter
The Quadro FX 3800 GPU includes a built-in flicker filter for the high quality rendering of computer graphics images in interlaced formats.
Rotated-Grid Full-Scene Antialiasing (RG FSAA)
The rotated grid FSAA sampling algorithm introduces far greater sophistication in the sampling pattern, significantly increasing color accuracy and visual quality for edges and lines, reducing "jaggies" while maintaining performance.
1GB GDDR3 GPU Memory with Ultra-Fast Memory Bandwidth
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.
30-bit Color
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.
128-Bit Precision Graphics Pipeline
Full IEEE 32-bit floating-point precision per color component (RGBA) delivers millions of color variations with the broadest dynamic range. Sets new standards for image clarity and quality in shading, filtering, texturing, and blending. Enables unprecedented rendered image quality for visual effects processing.
64-Bit Floating Point Precision
Image clarity and quality through 64-bit floating point capabilities setting the new standard for computational accuracy.
Advanced Color Compression, Early Z-Cull
Improved pipeline color compression and early z-culling to increase effective bandwidth and improve rendering efficiency and performance.
Compatible with Industry Standard Architectures
Compatible with x86 32 and 64-bit microprocessor architectures and operating systems from Intel/AMD and Microsoft/Linux.
Cg High-Level Graphics Shader Language
Cg-"C" for graphics-is a high-level, open-standard programming language that takes advantage of the power of programmable GPUs. nVIDIA Quadro FX programmable graphics pipelines leverage high-level shading languages to enable the creation and integration of real-time photorealistic effects into 3D models, scenes, and designs. This represents a key enabler for the creation of real-time, photo-realistic visuals within CAD, DCC, and scientific applications.
Essential for Microsoft Windows Vista
Offering an enriched 3D user interface, increased application performance, and the highest image quality, nVIDIA Quadro graphics boards and nVIDIA OpenGL ICD drivers are optimized for 32- and 64-bit architectures to enable the Windows Vista experience.
Fast 3D Texture Transfer
Fast transfer and manipulation of 3D textures resulting in more interactive visualization of large volumetric dataset.
Hardware 3D Window Clipping
Hardware accelerated clip regions (data transfer mechanism between a window and the frame buffer) which improve overall graphics performance by increasing transfer speed between color buffer and frame buffer.
HDMI Support (Optional)
Enables transport of video and audio to HDTV's and other HDMI capable devices (via industry standard DisplayPort to HDMI adaptors).
High Workstation Application Performance
Next-generation architecture enables over 2x improvement in geometry and fill rates with the excellent performance for professional CAD, DCC, and scientific applications.
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 industry-leading professional applications.
Next-Generation Vertex and Pixel Programmability
nVIDIA Quadro FX GPUs introduce infinite length vertex programs and dynamic flow control, removing the previous limits on complexity, and structure of shader programs. nVIDIA Quadro FX GPUs deliver sophisticated effects never before imagined for real-time graphics systems.
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 High Precision High Dynamic Range (HDR) Technology
Sets new standards for image clarity and quality through floating point capabilities in shading, filtering, texturing, and blending. Enables unprecedented rendered image quality for visual effects processing.
nVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology
The ultimate high-definition movie experience on your PC by combining high-definition movie decode, acceleration and post-processing on HDCP enabled platforms. PureVideo HD delivers superb picture quality for all video formats, as well as stunning Blu-ray playback-with low CPU utilization and power consumption.
nVIDIA GPU Unified Architecture
Industry's first unified architecture designed to dynamically allocate compute, geometry, shading and pixel processing power to deliver optimized GPU performance.
nVIDIA nView Multi-Display Technology
The 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.
PCI Express Gen 2 Compliant
Doubles the data transfer rate up to 5GT/s per lane for an aggregate bandwidth of 16GB/s bi-directional (8GB/s in each direction).
Quad Buffered Stereo
Offers enhanced visual experience for professional applications that demand stereo viewing capability.
Stereo Mini-DIN Connector (Optional)
Enables robust control of stereo effect through a dedicated connection between the graphics card and 3D stereo hardware.
nVIDIA SLI Technology
A revolutionary platform innovation that enables professional users to dynamically scale graphics performance, enhance image quality, and expand display real estate.
Allows a user to run multiple Windows or Linux workstation environments from a single system, with each Operating System directly assigned to a Quadro graphics solution.
Dual DisplayPort Digital Display Connectors
Dual DisplayPort connectors support ultra-high-resolution panels (up to 2560 x 1600) - which result in amazing image quality producing detailed photorealistic images.
Single Dual-Link Digital Display Connector
Dual-link TMDS transmitter supports ultra-high-resolution panels (up to 3840 x 2400 @24Hz) which results in amazing image quality producing detailed photorealistic images.
Ultra Quiet Design
Acoustics lower than most desktops at sub 40db for a quiet desktop environment.
