View Full Version : PNY pick up the Quadro ball

05 May 2002, 05:34 PM
Wasn't at all looking for this (spent half the day looking for info on FireGL Linux drivers) but it appears PNY technologies will be taking over from Elsa as far as the Quadro cards are concerned.

Media Workstation articles...

Nvidia Quadro Graphics Cards Available Through PNY Technologies (

PNY Technologies Intros the PNY Quadro Family of Graphics Accelerators (

PNY Technologies Homepage (

Plus, quite frankly, the only review of the Fire GL 8800 vs Quardro 900XGL ( I'm taking even remotely seriously.

Just have to ascertain the stability of the Linux drivers... it's possible that it's a disagreement with my AGP that's causing the problem(1) and not directly the drivers.

Anyway, just found the full press release labelled Last News ( (or Dernières Nouvelles ( in the french language section) at the europe site.

BTW, where ya buying from (in hope of european counterpart)?

(1)Apparently the AMD 761 Northbridge (for the first socket A Athlons) can cause problems and since I have an even more archaic AMD 751 Northbridge this could be a problem.

We are a resellers ,and our local distributor have them, they have them in there east coast warehouses.
Ill check tommarow if they have a world-wide warehouse since they are the biggest distributors of everything in the US.

Sweet, Nando I'm coming to you in a month when I'm ready to pick up a Quadro. I'm in NY.

05 May 2002, 09:10 PM
No problem, Nando! i've got a friend in USA that do it for me: buy and shipp here to Brazil. :thumbsup:
Should I ask him to go to or should I ask him to talk to you?
BTW, $671.99 for a PNY Quadro4 750XGL is a great price! I bet these 121 you have in stock will sell really fast! :)

Our Company is

I have spoken with PNY to see if we can do a CGchannel Special discount.
This would mean that we would need a minimum volume purchase of 10 units.
They are developing new enhancements for certain aplications and will announce details soon :D

Had Insight bookmarked for a while, along with Eighty 20 ( (who are announcing availability again) but since aren't officially announcing availability for Europe I'm guessing they're still handling all the admin/distribution/shipping/translating adjusted setup programs and manuals into about 25 different languages.

Still, gotta sort out what's making my computer freeze after intense 3D malarky... I do hope it's not my Northbridge.
