Nvidia Quadro FX Mobile - Where used

Any one know of a sub 14" (prefer 12" but would go to 13") laptop that uses a high end Quadro FX Mobile graphics card?

Prefer either a:

  • NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500M * NVIDIA Quadro FX 2500M * NVIDIA Quadro FX 1600M * NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M

But would go to a:

  • NVIDIA Quadro FX 570M

as a last resort.

I think the smallest mobile workstation you'll find is the Lenovo Thinkpad T61p with a 14.1" monitor and FX570 graphics. You can put together a nice configuration for about $2k.

Otherwise, just about any notebook will run SolidWorks using software OpenGL, though you will sacrifice performance and won't have support for RealView graphics.

Thanks Jim,

I spotted that one - Ideally I didn't want to go above 13ish" and I'm not sure that one will support real view in SWX2008

Is it an issue I don't know - but I heard somewhere that photoworks and realview were connected in 2008 and I just wanted to be sure.

AFIK the NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M is the lowest spec that will work - anyone shed any light on this.

The size limit I set myself was nothing bigger than the A4 notebook (300mm x 230mm x 25mm)I carry around with me.

You might want to investigate the What's New.pdf for 2008 to find out how important RealView will be to you. If necessary, sign up for Beta/pre- release.
