NVIDIA has outed its latest graphics card, and the company has Apple
users firmly in its sights. The
NVIDIA Quadro 4000 for Mac
packs 256 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 memory, which connectivity includes a DisplayPort and a DVI-I (Dual Link) connector built into its bracket, and an optional 3D stereo bracket; NVIDIA also throw in a DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort adapter.
The company reckons that, with its new NVIDIA Scalable Geometry Engine, the Quadro 4000 for Mac can process up to 890 million triangles per second. That’ll show its hand in supported apps like pple Final Cut Pro, DaVinci Resolve, Autodesk Smoke, Mathworks Matlab and Adobe Creative Suite 5, for image and video processing.
It’ll also work in Windows apps running under BootCamp, and if you have a pair of cards you can have four displays running simultaneously. Unsurprisingly, all this performance doesn’t come cheap. The NVIDIA Quadro 4000 GPU will be priced at $1,199 when it arrives later this month.
