Additional Info
  • Second Generation Transform and Lighting (T&L)

    Two separate engines on the GPU that provide for a powerful, balanced PC platform and enable extremely high polygon count scenes. Transform performance determines how complex objects can be and how many can appear in a scene without sacrificing frame rate. Lighting techniques add to a scene's realism by changing the appearance of objects based on light sources.

  • TwinView Dual-Display Architecture

    NVIDIA’s multiple display technology. TwinView boosts productivity by enabling the user to have two simultaneous displays without a second graphics board. NVIDIA GPUs are enabled to support multi-displays, but graphics cards vary. Please varify multi-display support in the graphics card before purchasing.

Key Features

Workstation-Class Performance
Based on the same architecture as the NVIDIA award-winning Quadro2 family of workstation products, the Quadro2 Go delivers fast performance and smooth frame rates in workstation applications, comparable to desktop workstations equipped with add-in graphics cards. Workstation-class performance on a notebook provides the freedom to take your most valuable tools on the road and be productive no matter where you are.
Professional Workstation Certifications
Quadro2 Go is the first mobile GPU to provide certification service and support to assure a trouble free end-user experience with leading workstation applications, including: 3ds max, Maya, SOFTIMAGE, Lightwave, AutoCAD, Pro/Engineer, CATIA, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, Unigraphics, and many others.
TwinView Dual-Display Architecture
Finally, with NVIDIA's TwinView™ Architecture, multiple displays can be supported on a single GPU. Financial analysts can have a second monitor specifically for tracking each data stream, while graphic artists can use an entire screen for palettes and another for editing. >>>more information
