Sun solutions for quad core, single socket extreme performance
 

Here is a roundup of the Sun solutions necessary to deliver quad core, single socket extreme performance in desktops and workstations.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 370 Graphics Accelerator

An entry-level graphics accelerator with 3D functionality at a 2D price, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 370 graphics accelerator card gets you into pro MCAD and EDA applications for less. Designed for Sun Ultra 24 workstations.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700 Graphics Accelerator

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700 Graphics Accelerator offers a best-of-class solution for CAD, DCC, and visualization professionals, with new levels of performance and interactivity, enabling shorter production cycles, and faster time to market. Up to two FX 3700 Graphics Accelerator cards can be installed in the Sun Ultra 24 Workstation.

Sun XVR-100 Graphics Accelerator

Sun's newest 2-D graphics accelerator, providing users with a low-cost, high-performance, 24-bit, 2-D graphics solution. The Sun XVR-100 graphics accelerator features 64 MB of SDRAM memory, dual-display support, and high-resolution support.

Sun XVR-300 Graphics Accelerator

The Sun XVR-300 PCI-Express based graphics accelerator is a low-cost solution for users in technical markets requiring 2-D, 24-bit color solutions or for customers looking to add a display to their Sun Fire servers or their Sun Ultra workstations.

Sun XVR-2500 Graphics Accelerator

Architected specifically to benefit the Sun Ultra 45 Workstation for uncompromised visualization features and exceptional performance, the Sun XVR-2500 graphics accelerator provides outstanding graphics quality, functionality, and performance to technical, engineering, development and design users. Sun brings its signature reliability to its high-quality, high-performance 3-D graphics and visualization in this most complete acceleration of the Sun OpenGL for Solaris API to date.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600 Graphics Accelerator

NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600 Graphics Accelerator is based on the industry's first unified architecture designed to dynamically allocate compute, geometry, shading and pixel processing power to deliver optimized GPU performance. Combining the industry's most advanced feature set, including largest frame buffer (1.5GB), with GPU computing technology for visualization, the FX 5600 Graphics Accelerator solve the most complex problems. The reference standard for Shader Model 4.0 and DirectX 10, the FX 5600 Graphics Accelerator enables next generation applications with unprecedented image quality. Up to two FX 5600 can be installed in the Sun Ultra 40 M2 Workstation to work independently or combined in SLI-mode, to scale graphics performance. A single FX5600 can be installed in a Sun Ultra 24 workstation.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 5500 Graphics Accelerator

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 5500 Graphics Accelerators shatter the performance limits and enables unmatched functionality for the most demanding applications. Up to two FX 5500 Graphics Acclerators can be installed in the Sun Ultra 40 M2 Workstation and Sun Ultra 40 Workstation to work independently or combined in SLI-mode, to scale graphics performance.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600 Graphics Accelerator

NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600 Graphics Accelerator, like the FX5600, is based also on the industry's first unified architecture designed to dynamically allocate compute, geometry, shading and pixel processing power to deliver optimized GPU performance. Combining the industry's most advanced feature set with a smaller frame buffer (786MB), the FX 4600 Graphics Accelerator solve the most complex problems. Up to two FX 4600 can be installed in the Sun Ultra 40 M2 Workstation to work independently or combined in SLI-mode, to scale graphics performance. A single FX4600s can be installed in a Sun Ultra 24 workstation.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700 Graphics Accelerator

NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700 graphics card is the professional's high-performance choice for the Sun Ultra 24 workstation. Featuring a revolutionary unified architecture, Quadro FX 1700 dynamically allocates geometry, shading, pixel, and compute processing power to deliver optimized GPU performance while consuming significantly less power. Up to two FX1700s can be installed in a Sun Ultra 24 workstation.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 570 Graphics Accelerator

NVIDIA Quadro entry level professional graphics boards deliver unmatched value. With 256 MB frame buffer, Quadro entry-level solutions are Microsoft Vista ready, and are certified on CAD, DCC, and video applications. The Sun Ultra 24 workstation can accept two of these boards to drive four displays. Up to two FX570s can be installed in a Sun Ultra 24 workstation.

The NVIDIA Quadro NVS 290 Graphics Accelerator (128MB)

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 290 Graphics Accelerator Card is for professional 2D business graphics. The Quadro NVS 290 offers compatibility with industry-leading business applications and supports Windows Vista. Up to two NVS 290s can be supported in the Sun Ultra 24 workstation.
