great when it's working


this is a very loud card regardless of the gpu load. three times the cuda features have stopped working, first 2 times i had to do a full windows reinstall (currently looking for an alternate method). the heatsink is very prone to getting clogged.when...

I didn't buy this card from Newegg, but I wished that I did. The playback is AWESOME in Premiere Pro CS6 and After Effects CS6. It can still handle high resolution video games as well

There's one thing that kept bugging me with this card. WHY IS IT GETTING SOOOOO HOT. Temps were reaching upwards of 79° C at idle. Googled the problem, turns out that's what PNY and Nvidia considered normal. Except my PC kept freezing and shutting down...

More than met expectations


I needed to upgrade the GPU(Quadro FX4400 - 512 mb) of my old Dell Precision WS 670 in order to run Win 7. The FX4400 was a great card under XP but with Win 7 the performance rating of this card was only 1. The PNY VCQ4000 Qudro 4000 was completely...

decent card


I would definately consider a less expensive card if the performance demand is not there at all times.

Runs Autocad and Revit very well. Install was a breeze, nothing unusual about installing drivers and other software

I have graphics cards at half the cost that score better in windows experience index. Not sure where the perks are yet. Need to do some more performance testing

waste of money


I am so angry at the horrible customer service. It would be nice to find a company that still cares for what they are building and take pride in users enjoying their products. It is all bottom line now.


Doesn't work properly with Premiere CS6 even though it is supposed it. Worse yet, the tech support from all companies is useless.... adobe could care less, PNY doesn't respond, and Nivida, forget about it. They will sure take your money though. I wish...

I am running two of these things in my Dell Precision T3600 at work, with three monitors, and a 6 core CPU, and they make for a smokin fast combo. These things laugh at video games, and easily handle running Autocad, Revit, Sketchup, and more, all at...

The price is still pretty unholy, but at least my company bought them instead of me

Works just fine for me


Took me a while to find the right driver to use for 3ds Max, but now that I did, it's been working like a charm. Also, install MSI Afterburner to keep the temp regulated. Never once had a problem with this card. Only thing keeping me from giving it 5...

Reliable, Powerful

Too many drivers to choose from, Expensive

Great Card


This is a great card! Beware when buying it though it is recommended you have at least 2 intake fans. Without them your card with get HOT! Works like a charm though.

Big improvement


Been using the card for a month now for IronCad and Windows 7 x64. Upgraded from a GeForce 8600GT Experience index went from a 5.0 to a 7.3. Worth the $$$.

eating crow


I posted a criticism with two eggs, the product did not come in a antistatic bag. Well when PNY was able to get back to me the product does not come in a bag as the included instructions say, they have change their packaging. My appologies to everyone,...

The instructions need to be changed for those of us who read the directions and follow them to the letter

Product Specifications

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000 SDI is the ideal solution for digital broadcast professionals, who can use it in virtual-set, sports, and weather news systems to composite live video footage onto virtual backgrounds and send the result to live video for TV broadcast. The solution also allows film production, post-production, and finishing professionals to preview, in real time on HD broadcast monitors, the results of 3D compositing, editing, and color grading. The NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000 SDI provides two channels - fill or key - of 8- or 10-bit uncompressed SDI in HD or SD formats. It supports both Windows and Linux, and works on top of existing applications, or can be easily integrated within a broadcast or video editing application through NVIDIA's API. The NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000 SDI leverages the Quadro FX 4000 architecture with 2x the geometry and fill rate, 5x the hardware pixel read-back performance, and 1.25x the memory bandwidth of previous generation workstation graphics. It also supports ultra-fast GDDR3 memory and rotated-grid FSAA for increased color accuracy and improved visual quality of edges and lines without compromising performance.
