  • Supports attachment of the NVIDIA SLI Connector
    • Dynamically scale graphics performance, enhance image quality by combining two Quadro® 5000 graphic cards by uniting them as a single graphics card within selected ThinkStation systems.
      • SLI Frame Rendering: Transparently scale application performance that benefits visual simulation, broadcast and video applications which are fill rate-limited, using the Split Frame Rendering (SFR) mode SLI Full Screen Anti Aliasing (FSAA): Transparently scale image quality. FSLI FSAA increases the FSAA level up to 32x to remove jaggies from contours of geometries in real time that benefits design review and Digital Mockup (DMU), visual simulation, broadcast and video applications.
