Ik kwam bij Voodoo Extreme wat info tegen over de nVidia Quadra (zie ook deze nieuwsposting van Robin, gisteren). Zo te lezen wordt dit de professionele high-end versie van de GeForce (voor 3D modelling e.d.):
For middle- and higher-end three-D graphics, spokesperson Derek Perez says Nvidia will introduce a faster controller, code-named Quadro. Quadro will use the same chip core as the GeForce, but it will run at higher clock rates. No doubt Quadro will come with other enhancements, including support for bigger frame buffers and higher-quality images, but Perez remained reticent about the details, pending the chip's public introduction (perhaps as soon as this month). Perez also was vague about who will sell the technology, but Elsa says it will base its upcoming Synergy III on the Quadro chip. As to price, we're making an educated guess that these boards will knock heads with the [3Dlabs] Oxygen GVX1 in the under $1,000 range."
Later in the article, a sections states:
"Closer to earth, an Elsa spokesperson told us he expected the Quadro-based Synergy III to achieve a score of about 30 on the ProCDRS OpenGL graphics measure from SPEC, the industry's premier benchmarking agency. That would surpass the [Intense3D] Wildcat 4105 by a small margin but undershoot the upcoming Wildcat 4110 by about 16 percent. Nevertheless this would be good considering the expected price.
