How Workstation Users Can Get Desktop-Class Performance Without the Desktop

by Sandeep Gupte

If you’re a designer, artist, architect or engineer, inspiration can strike anywhere. And when that happens, you need easy access to the right tools to capture your ideas.

To accomplish your best work, wherever you may be, nothing provides the horsepower and flexibility to create like our new NVIDIA Quadro graphics for mobile workstations.

Quadro M5000M GPU
The flagship Quadro M5000M GPU delivers the highest performance and largest on-board GPU memory of any mobile workstation in the world — coupled with long battery life and portability.

Launching today, the NVIDIA Quadro M5000M, M4000M, M3000M, M2000M, M1000M and M600M mobile GPUs give you a full range of choices to power your workflows.

Built on Maxwell

Built on our Maxwell GPU architecture, this new generation of Quadro processors delivers incredible performance and power efficiency. It’s up to 2X faster than its predecessor (see charts below), with up to 8GB of ultra-fast GDDR5 memory, the largest on any mobile workstation.

Quadro-powered mobile workstations pack enough punch to run the same demanding professional applications as desktop workstations — at nearly the same level of performance with lower power consumption. This includes the complex, resource-intensive applications that media and entertainment, design, engineering and other professionals rely on to bring their creations to life.

Over six years of testing goes into ensuring the reliability and performance of Quadro GPUs and their drivers. They’re already certified for more than 100 applications, ensuring compatibility with Adobe Creative Cloud, Autodesk and many others. Plus, these GPUs accelerate NVIDIA Iray, our physically based rendering technology, by more than 2X over the previous generation. So, creating photorealistic renderings on the go is a breeze.

Rolling Out Over Rest of Year

You’ll find our latest mobile GPUs in workstation models launching throughout the rest of the year, including the new Dell Precision 15 5000 Series, and the Dell Precision 15 and 17 7000 series, the HP ZBook workstations, the Lenovo ThinkPad P50 and P70 and MSI WS60 and WS72.

You can get an early look at some of these workstations at Adobe MAX, the world’s largest global creativity conference, on Oct. 3-7 in Los Angeles.

Action at NVIDIA’s Adobe MAX Booth

At our booth 603 there, we’ll be showing the Dell Precision 15 5000 Series and Lenovo P70 workstations running Adobe Creative Cloud apps like Illustrator CC, Photoshop CC, Lightroom CC, Premiere Pro CC and After Effects CC.

So, stop by and learn firsthand how NVIDIA GPUs speed up design and video workflows, giving professionals room to be more creative. And be sure to enter to win an NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV device.
