CHIP DESIGNER Nvidia has announced the launch and immediate availability of its Quadro 2000D graphics system, designed for use in professional medical imaging environments.
Calling it a graphics 'solution', what the Green Goblin means are graphics cards using its Fermi chipset that has two dual-link digital video interface connectors and delivers images with maximum resolution of 10 megapixels for 10-bit and 12-bit gray scale. Sadly there is no word as to whether these imaging computers can run Crysis 2.
Peter Steven, VP and GM of NDS Surgical Imaging's radiology business unit, said, "With the new Quadro 2000D, Nvidia offers the latest Quadro technology in a design compatible with existing Dome displays, which will allow us to deliver precise 10-bit grayscale and colour imaging in a much desired dual DVI configuration."
What Quadro 2000D does have that is similar to its gaming brethren is multiple display support. While various Radeon's support Eyefinity for multiple screens, the Quadro 2000D has "Mosaic Display Technology". This allows images to be shown across up to eight displays, driven from a single workstation. µ
