NVIDIA announces their next generation SDI product

NVIDIA has announced its latest addition to the Quadro family of professional GPU's. The Quadro FX 4500 SDI enables customers to develop real-time, high definition 3D graphics for live on-air programming:

NVIDIA Quadro SDI products allow broadcasters to enrich their programming with a broad range of high definition content, from real-time 3D effects, to full blown virtual sets for news, sports, weather, and almost any other genre desired. These solutions leverage an extremely powerful and programmable graphics processing unit, which can generate and output both standard and high definition television content in real time, allowing these solutions to be used in a live broadcast environment.

NVIDIA reports that NBC Universal will be using the Quadro FX 4500 SDI to develop content for its CNBC financial news station.

The FX 4500 SDI sports a 512MB frame buffer, offers up to a 50% increase in performance compared to its predecessor and supports SDI in 2K, HD and SD formats in Windows and Linux.

Hearing 'FX' in any graphics card name brings back bad memories!

"supports SDI in 2K, HD and SD "

Not too sure how many real-time 2k broadcasts there are, but just thinking about it makes me giddy.

Im guessing this is 7800GTX based, correct? Pretty damn slick. I bet THIS thing is gonna cost a pretty penny with 512mb of RAM... gonna cost more than my entire rig, monitor included. heh.
