Workstation GPUs are not our main focus at Phoronix, but with the increasing use of Linux on workstation systems, we will be starting to look at professional graphics products this month and likely more of them in the future. We are beginning this expedition by looking at the Quadro FX1700, which is one of NVIDIA's mid-range workstation graphics cards. This Quadro graphics card boasts 512MB of video memory, support for CUDA, and OpenGL 2.1 support. According to NVIDIA's product literature, the Quadro FX1700 is engineered to deliver exceptional performance, quality, and price for professionals.

Features:

- 512MB GDDR2 Video Memory
- 128-bit Memory Interface
- 12.8GB/s Memory Bandwidth
- PCI Express x16 Interface
- CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) Support
- PureVideo / PureVideo HD Technology
- Dual Dual-Link DVI Connectors
- 42W Maximum Power Consumption
- DirectX 10.0 / OpenGL 2.1

PNY Technologies is NVIDIA's exclusive AIB partner for the Quadro series, and this FX1700 comes with a part number of PNY VCQFX1700-PCIE-PB. The graphics on the outside of the product packaging are rather austere, considering this is a workstation product that needs not any goblins or females lavishing the product box. Inside the box were the PCI-E Quadro graphics card, a Windows driver CD, quick start guide, two DVI to VGA dongles, and a component output video adapter. All of these components were bundled together inside a plastic structure that was shrink-wrapped.
