Nvidia Quadro FX 560
Quadro FX 560 is the youngest solution in the professional graphics card family from Nvidia. It sells for about $270. It is based on G73 GPU that is also used for GeForce 7600 and 7300 gaming cards.
The GPU modification used in Quadro FX 560 features 12 pixel and 5 vertex pipelines. The chip frequency equals 350MHz. It is equipped with 128MB of graphics memory and the memory bus is 128bit wide. The graphics memory works at 1200MHz frequency.
Quadro FX 560 features its own specific PCB layout. The GPU is covered with a small aluminum heatsink. Of course, no additional power supply is necessary for this solution. The card features two DVI Outs and an HDTV Out. The Dual-Link technology is supported by only one DVI Output.
Note that even though the manufacturer doesn’t officially claim that Quadro FX 560 supports SLI technology, the corresponding connector is there, so it gives us some hope that we will be able to enable this technology on Quadro FX 560 cards one day.
