NVIDIA’s Next-Gen of Quadro GPUs Promise Twice the Production Power
NVIDIA today unveiled its next generation of NVIDIA Quadro GPUs, which promise to deliver an enterprise-grade visual computing platform with up to twice the performance and data-handling capability of the previous generation. With this lineup NVIDIA aims to allow users with complex models and higher-resolution images to incorporate resources in the cloud and access work remotely – even on mobile devices.
“The next generation of Quadro GPUs not only dramatically increases graphics and compute performance to handle huge data sets. It extends the concept of visual computing from a graphics card in a workstation to a connected environment,” says Jeff Brown, VP of Professional Visualization at NVIDIA. “The new Quadro lineup lets users interact with their designs or data locally on a workstation, remotely on a mobile device or in tandem with cloud- based services.”
The new generation of Quadro GPUs – the K5200, K4200, K2200, K620 and K420 – enables users to interact with data sets or designs up to twice the size handled by previous generations. In addition, users can remotely interact with graphics from a Quadro-based workstation from essentially any device, including PCs, Macs and tablets, as well as switch effortlessly from local GPU rendering to cloud-based offerings using NVIDIA Iray rendering. Quadro GPU’s also allow users to run popular applications – such as Adobe CC, Autodesk Design Suite and Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS 2014 – on average 40% faster than with previous Quadro cards.
Quadro GPUs accelerate more than 100 CUDA architecture, DirectX, OpenCL and OpenGL applications. The latest Quadro GPU lineup will ship beginning this fall from NVIDIA workstation OEMs, including HP, Dell, Lenovo and other major workstation providers; from systems integrators, including BOXX Technologies and Supermicro; and from authorized distribution partners, including PNY Technologies in North America and Europe, ELSA and Ryoyo in Japan, and Leadtek in Asia Pacific.
