Nvida Releases The Quadro FX 5800 Video Card…. Perhaps Now You Can Run Crysis

This press release popped up today announcing the Quadro FX 5800 Video Card which they say is “the most powerful professional graphics card in graphics history.” If you excuse the marketing BS, they may have a point:

The Quadro FX 5800 graphics card offers unprecedented performance and scalability to rapidly visualize and interpret massive datasets that until now were unattainable on a workstation graphics board. Offering up to 240 CUDA(TM) programmable parallel cores and the industries first 4GB of graphics memory, the Quadro FX 5800 graphics card is ideally suited for oil and gas exploration, medical imaging, styling and design, and scientific visualization.

Screw all of that. This card is powerful enough to run Crysis and get decent performance. If it does that, it should be a hit with gamers everywhere.
