NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro FX 3800 sales 30 March 2009 at a recommended price of $799 . This is Tesla 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 55 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 1 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 198 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 108 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 13.00 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
