NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500


NVIDIA started Quadro FX 4500 sales 28 July 2005 at a recommended price of $2,499. This is Curie architecture desktop card based on 110 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 512 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.05 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 33.6 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is Dual-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 109 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.21 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN RTX.
