Pricing of NVIDIA Quadro FX 3000 and Quadro FX 3000G was not officially announced by NVIDIA’s press-release yesterday and was probably a thing that graphics professionals were curious about. Fortunately, a reader sent us a link to a company that sells expensive professional graphics cards for the price close to official suggested retail price.
Apparently, NVIDIA Quadro FX 3000 costs $2395, whereas the more advanced Quadro FX 3000G with genlock and framelock features is priced at $2995. Such high prices mean that the Quadro FX 3000-series are not meant to substitute the Quadro FX 1000 and Quadro FX 2000 graphics cards on the market, but to complement the whole Quadro FX lineup.
With the introduction of a $3000 professional Quadro FX 3000G graphics card NVIDIA fully reiterated its plans to address the whole professional graphics cards market, including the highest-end solutions with astonishing prices competing against products from 3Dlabs, Sun and HP.
You can order the latest Quadro FX 3000 products here, but you should probably think twice before getting them, whether it worth paying large sums of money for slight performance increase over the Quadro FX 2000.
