NVIDIA's latest binary display drivers under Linux fully support the NVIDIA Quadro FX1700. We happen to be using the most recent NVIDIA 169.12 driver.

During our testing, the NVIDIA G84GL core had operated comfortably between 50° ~ 60°C. The Quadro FX1700 does have two PowerMizer states.

The Linux benchmarks of the NVIDIA Quadro FX1700 aren't available yet, but will be published later this week. This article is just to serve as a preview of this mid-range product and to inform our readers of the forthcoming workstation graphics articles. For the Quadro FX1700 benchmarks, we will not only be benchmarking this card under Ubuntu Linux, but we will be directly comparing its performance to Microsoft Windows and Solaris Express. In addition, we will also be looking at an ATI FireGL component in just a few days. Stay tuned!
