Nvidia launches cheap Quadro

Quadro FX 380 low profile


Nvidia has announced a new addition to its professional Quadro series, the low profile Quadro FX 380 LP.

At just $169, the tiny 380 is one of the cheapest Quadros ever launched. Nvidia claims the card is optimized for AutoCAD and certified for 3ds MAX and other Autodesk software.

Of course, it is a DirectX 10 card with Shader Model 4.1 and it has 512MB of DDR3 and 16 CUDA cores, or shaders, so it's not exactly a very powerful solution. However, it features DVI and DisplayPort and it should be a rather good choice for designers on a budget or hobby users.

Power consumption is rated at just 28W, so we're really not sure why Nvidia opted for a fan instead of a passive heatsink.
