The NVIDIA Quadro NVS 290 is a dual-head graphics card that is designed around the fact that business users often need to work on two displays at the same time and use applications that make heavy use of 2D graphics. The card is based on NVIDIA's unified architecture that enables dynamic allocation of GPU resources to deliver optimized performance. It has a 256MB DDR2 Frame Buffer that is meant to allow users to run graphically intensive applications without any kind of stutter. There is no fan on this card; rather, heat is dissipated using a passive heatsink, ensuring the silence that is crucial in a business environment.

The card makes use of NVIDIA's PureVideo technology to display clear images and provide smooth video playback. The technology ensures high quality image scaling without any distortion for both HD and SD videos. PureVideo also offers a number of other advantages like inverse or reverse telecine, which improves video display quality and aids in video compression. Also powering the card is the NVIDIA nView software that allows users to precisely control their multi-display options. This includes creating virtual desktops to minimize clutter and enhance productivity, extending the Windows taskbar across monitors for convenience and creating user profiles for situations where multiple users use the same computer.
