  • Installing this graphics card into the ThinkCentre system disables the ThinkCentre systems on-board monitor ports. Therefore, allowing two monitors to attach to the graphic card two monitor ports.
  • ThinkStations offer two PCI-e x16 graphic slots allowing two graphic cards to be installed. Two installed graphic cards allow attachment of four (quad) monitors.
  • This graphics card is not supported by the ThinkPad Advanced Dock (2503).
Software requirements
  • Microsoft Windows Vista
  • Windows XP
  • Linux RedHat 5 - Full OpenGL implementation, complete with NVIDIA and ARB extensions

  • NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700 graphics adapter fitted full-height bracket
  • Two DVI-VGA Monitor Adapters (allows attachment of VGA analog monitor to graphics card DVI port)
  • Publication
  • CD
