Best in Class: NVIDIA Heads to Autodesk University

by Andrew Rink

Design visualization and virtualization are two of the key topics at next week’s Autodesk University, in Las Vegas – and NVIDIA experts will be there to help.

We’ll be showcasing, with our partners, the latest NVIDIA Iray physically based rendering technology. It lets designers, artists and architects accurately predict their final creations  by maximizing the effectiveness of GPUs – be they local, on the network or in the cloud.

At the show, you can see demos of Iray plug-in –  which enable you to predictably visualize and iterate on designs with unprecedented photorealism and speed – running on HP Z840, Dell T7910 and Lenovo P900 workstations.

There’ll also be:AU-logo-232x149

  • New NVIDIA Quadro mobile GPUs powering the latest mobile workstations from BOXX, Dell, HP, Lenovo and MSI.
  • NVIDIA Iray for 3ds Max on BOXX workstations showing how physically based rendering technology can help architects and designers avoid costly design flaws, like London’s Death Ray.
  • NVIDIA GRID technology running Autodesk AutoCAD , Revit and other software applications, via Citrix and VMware hypervisors, on Dell Precision Rack servers.

And in the Open Lab, attendees can test drive favorite Autodesk apps running remotely from the cloud on NVIDIA, Dell and VMware virtualization technology.

We’re also helping to lead some informative classes, including:

Finally, we’re kicking off phase two of Project Soane with HP, a rendering contest to bring to life the historic Bank of England building based on a recently crowd-sourced Revit model of Sir John Soane’s neo-classical design.

Visit the BOXX, Citrix, Dell, GPL, HP, Lenovo, MSI and VMware booths to see how NVIDIA graphics technologies deliver the best performance and visual experience for Autodesk customers.
