The Quadro Plex 2200 is not an average consumer platform in any sense, and you’re not likely to find it in or around many hardcore gaming enthusiasts’ vicinity. However, it’s such a powerful and unique setup that it deserves the attention of the masses. While we’re familiar with the Quadro branch of NVIDIA, which designs machines like this for high-end imaging businesses (3D design, CAD, etc.), what makes the Quadro Plex 2200 special is the use of two or four state of the art NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 GPUs for an 8GB or 16GB memory capacity (frame buffer) as a ready-made solution.

NVIDA’s latest Quadro graphics card, the Quadro FX 5800, is designed for use by professional designers utilizing such tools as Photoshop, CAD software, or 3D modeling applications. It is also used for medical imaging and gas/oil exploration operations. The card is the first in the industry to feature 4GB of graphics memory, surpassing even NVIDIA’s top of the line enthusiast exclusive video cards like the 9800 GX2 (2GB).
The new Palit Revolution 700 stakes claim to being the world’s fastest graphics card. It’s the first custom designed HD 4870 X2 in the world, and its features are quite impressive. The Palit Revolution 700 Deluxe presents dual GPUs pre-overclocked to 750MHz core speed, 2GB of GDDR5 memory, and 3800 MHz memory speed.

As most here will know, GPU is short for graphics processing unit, a piece of hardware that is dedicated to rendering graphics. Years ago, when the personal computer first found its way into homes, dedicated GPUs did not exist. All graphics were displayed and manipulated by the CPU (the central processing unit). As a result, only primitive images could be displayed, without performance issues. It wasn’t until the 1980s that the first dedicated GPU was invented.
