SINGAPORE, December 6, 2006 -- NVIDIA Corporation announced the NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500M, a high-performing mobile workstation graphics solution for CAD, Digital Content Creation, and Scientific Visualisation.

Engineered to deliver unprecedented performance for accelerated workflow and shortened design cycles, the Quadro FX 3500M with support for OpenGL and DirectX, offers up to 512MB G-DDR3 memory, a 256-bit memory interface, up to 38.4GB/s memory bandwidth, and up to 2GB/s pixel read back. The Quadro FX 3500M includes adaptive power management tools designed to provide performance scalability and visualisation of extensive datasets with extremely high image quality.

This new Quadro FX graphics solution is available immediately as an option on the award-winning Dell Precision M90 system. The Dell Precision M90 is one of the most powerful mobile workstation solutions ever offered by Dell, delivering the performance and features on-the-go Engineers, Artists, and Professionals demand in an ISV-certified mobile platform.
