NVIDIA Quadro Plex 2200 Dedicated Desk-side Visual Computing System (VCS)

The Quadro Plex 2200 is not an average consumer platform in any sense, and you’re not likely to find it in or around many hardcore gaming enthusiasts’ vicinity. However, it’s such a powerful and unique setup that it deserves the attention of the masses. While we’re familiar with the Quadro branch of NVIDIA, which designs machines like this for high-end imaging businesses (3D design, CAD, etc.), what makes the Quadro Plex 2200 special is the use of two or four state of the art NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 GPUs for an 8GB or 16GB memory capacity (frame buffer) as a ready-made solution.
