NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700


NVIDIA started Quadro FX 1700 sales 12 September 2007 at a recommended price of 699 USD. This is Tesla architecture desktop card based on 80 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 0.5 GB of DDR2 memory clocked at 0.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 25.6 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 168 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 42 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.21 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
