Nvidia yesterday filled out its range of workstation-oriented graphics boards with a new mid-range part, the Quadro FX 1100.

Based on Nvidia's existing IBM-manufactured 130nm, 120 million transistor Quadro FX chip, the 1100 board sits between the existing FX 1000 and FX 2000 parts. Like those chips, it supports up to 128MB of memory accessed across a bus clocked to handling data at a rate of 10.4GBps - less than the 2000's 12.8GBps but more than the 1000's 9.6GBps.

Nvidia quotes proe-02, ugs-03 and 3dsmax-02 figures of 37.9, 36.5 and 26.9, respectively. The new chip can churn out 75 million triangles per second. It offers three parallel vertex engines, and a pixel pipeline with 128-bit floating point precision. It can do 12-bit sub-pixel precision, and 16x full-screen anti-aliasing.

The board features dual DVI connectors and resolutions up to 3840 x 2400.

The Quadro FX 1100 board is available now and shipping in systems offered by HP and IBM. It is also available from Nvidia's distributors, plus VARs and system builders. ®
