Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro FX 4600 sales 5 March 2007 at a recommended price of $1,999. This is Tesla architecture desktop card based on 90 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 768 MB 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 dual-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 229 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 134 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at

1.47%

of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.
