All New NVIDIA Quadro® FX 3700 by Leadtek - Advances The State Of Graphics For CAD And DCC Visualization

Taipei, Taiwan, February 29th, 2008--Leadtek Research Inc., the exclusive workstation partner of NVIDIA in Asia except Japan, today released itslatest high-endprofessional graphics card, the Quadro FX 3700.The Quadro® FX 3700 graphics board offers high throughput for interactive visualization, with 112 parallel processors, 512MB of onboard graphics memory, and a 256-bit memory interface. It easily manages the large models and complex, real-time shaders that dominate the CAD and digital content creation (DCC) markets.

LeadtekNVIDIA Quadro® FX 3700 graphics board delivers a ground-breaking, unified architecture for optimized performance - the reference standard for next-generation OpenGL® and DirectX® 10 applications and NVIDIA CUDA™, the world's only C-language GPU development platform. The Quadro® FX 3700 offers new levels of performance and interactivity, leading to shorter production cycles and faster time to market.

The card enables shaders to simulate a virtually unlimited range of physical characteristics. These include lighting effects like dispersion, reflection, refraction, BRDF models and physical surface properties like casting effects, porosity and molded surfaces. Real-time shaders allow these effects to be combined and modified interactively, something impossible with simple 2D static texture maps.NVIDIA Application Configuration Engine (ACE) automatically configures the graphics hardware and software to deliver maximum application performance.

The LeadtekQuadro® FX 3700 graphics board also offers PCI-Express Gen 2 support, essentially doubling the data transfer rate to a blazing fast 16 Gbps. Because it supports NVIDIA CUDA™ technology application developers can utilize the computation power of the graphics board to greatly reduce the time it takes to solve complex visualization problems. What's more, the Quadro® FX 3700 graphics board consumes less than 80 watts of power for improved energy management.

NVIDIA Quadro® solutions are widely available through leading PC manufacturers , workstation system integrators, and NVIDIA APAC channel partner, Leadtek Research Inc.. For more information about the full lineup of NVIDIA Quadro® professional solutions please visit
