Next-Gen Quadro at the Heart of Pro Graphics Workflows

by Greg Estes

We’re showing how our latest Quadro professional GPU lineup powers new visual computing workflows at this week’s SIGGRAPH computer graphics conference.

Design professionals and scientists are working with larger, more complex models. Creative professionals continue to raise the bar, building more compelling visual effects at resolutions of 4K and above.

This has led to dramatic increases in the computing power required for visualization. And often it’s teams, rather than individuals, working on projects. That makes the ability to collaborate across time zones and among users – many of whom may be mobile – more important than ever.

This requires a new approach to visual computing. One that supports user interaction on a local workstation, remote viewing of large and complex datasets on mobile devices and tight integration with cloud-based services. All with enterprise-grade reliability.

The latest Quadro lineup offers faster processors, of course, plus increased data handling capability and unique visual computing features such as connectivity to the cloud and mobile devices. The bottom line: We’re extending the concept of visual computing from a graphics card in a workstation to a connected environment, with Quadro at its center.

NVIDIA Quadro Kepler family
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.

Companies like Framestore, PSA Peugeot Citroen, Armstrong White and the team working on the new David Fincher film “Gone Girl have already adopted the latest Quadro GPUs. They’re working with richer scenes and models, harnessing larger data sets, building new cloud-based workflows and improving the ability to collaborate with far-flung teams and clients.

Starting this fall, users can buy the latest GPUs from our workstation OEMs Dell, HP and Lenovo, as well as resellers including PNY Technologies in North America and Europe, ELSA and Ryoyo in Japan, and Leadtek in Asia Pacific.
