Nvidia Quadro Plex 1000: $18,000 Video Card? YA RLY.

Nvidia Quadro Plex 1000


*Promptly ****s self*

As if PC gaming wasn't expensive enough, Nvidia have unveiled a graphics card that will be known to shooter fans simply as 'God'. The $18K Quadro Plex 1000. How's your e-penis now?

You could buy a pretty decent sports car for that kind of money. Or, according to Nvidia, you can have 12 mega pixel hi-def video, and a card (actually it's more like a series of cards) that will run every PC game due for release in the next century.

"According to Nvidia, a node can achieve up to 64x full scene anti-aliasing (FSAA), deliver a performance of up to 148 megapixels on 16 synchronized digital-output channels and eight HD SDI channels. The firm says that the fill rate reaches 80 billion pixels/s while the geometry performance is rated at seven billion vertices/s."


The cheapest model starts at $17,500, and it just goes up from there! When they're released in September, we'll probably give a few away. Or, maybe we'll buy a house instead!

The only problem with owning one of these cards is you'd need about 20 of the latest CPUs in order to feed it data quick enough that the CPU wouldn't become a massive bottleneck. Of course, they're designed for integrated graphics computers and engineers, not really gaming!

If anyone out there actually plans to purchase one of these suckas, we'd love to hear how many of your children you intend to sell in order to fund such a venture. Of course, we do not condone such things.

This is like "Render all of Oblivion in real time strong... with 20,000x15,000 pixel resolution at 1000 fps". Some company like Gamespot or IGN needs to get this thing and run something on it.

I wouldn't be suprised if there was a note inside that said "Don't open until 2106" and inside it would read "Lol, hope we still pwn." Hah.

Also, this had to be said: Top that ATI!

I gotta get one of these, along with a computer that can use it.

I'm going to win one. No matter what.

Then I'll sell it and buy a house, a car, a mistress, and a dragon.

Well I figured we'd just pimp out IG and Tie on the streets, and then we'd all have enough money to each have our own.
