NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600 technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro FX 4600 sales 5 March 2007 at a recommended price of 1,999 USD. This is a Tesla architecture desktop card based on 90 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 0.8 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.4 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 67.2 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 229 mm. An additional 1 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 134 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 8.68 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
