    Nvidia Press Release

    NVIDIA Launches Quadro FX 500 - The First Programmable Entry-Level Workstation Solution.

    The NVIDIA Quadro FX 500, available immediately, is armed with a high-end architecture featuring the industry’s only true 128-bit floating-point frame buffer, industry-leading 12 bits of subpixel precision, parallelized vertex engines, the industry’s first on-chip vertex cache, and fully programmable pixel pipelines allowing developers to simulate a virtually unlimited range of real-world properties like metal or skin and to modify them on the fly.

    “With this new product, NVIDIA has made high-quality graphics affordable and readily available to a broad audience of professional users,” said Kara Yokley, manager, IDC workstation research. “The NVIDIA Quadro FX 500, with its real-time rendering and productivity enhancing capabilities, will help the company grow its workstation business by tapping into new target segments within the computer-aided design and digital content creation markets.”

    NVIDIA Quadro FX 500’s programmability is exposed through Cg, a C-like high-level programming language developed by NVIDIA. Using Cg, major independent computer-aided design and digital content creation software application vendors—including Alias|Wavefront, Digital Immersion, Discreet, Softimage, and SolidWorks—have incorporated into their applications the hardware rendering capabilities found in NVIDIA Quadro FX 500.

    “The programmability of the NVIDIA Quadro FX 500 allows Discreet to offer our customers production rendering as an integral part of real-time content creation,” said Chris Ford, product line manager at Discreet. “Users can apply sophisticated virtual materials or shaders like metals, rubber, or skin to their 3D models and render them in real time as they are designing.”
