NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700


NVIDIA started Quadro FX 3700 sales 8 January 2008 at a recommended price of 1,599 USD. This is Tesla architecture desktop card based on 65 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 0.5 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 51.2 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 78 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 9.67 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
