NVIDIA has unveiled its next generation of NVIDIA Quadro GPUs (graphics processing units), ideal for designers, artists and scientists. The new lineup delivers an enterprise-grade visual computing platform with up to twice the application performance and data-handling capability of the previous generation, the company states.
The next generation — the K5200, K4200, K2200, K620 and K420 — allows users to:
- Remotely interact with graphics applications from a Quadro-based workstation from any device.
- Run applications such as Autodesk Design Suite, SolidWorks 2014 up to an average 40% faster than previous Quadro cards.
- Easily switch from a local GPU rendering to cloud-based offerings using NVIDIA Iray.
The GPUs also accelerate more than 100 CUDA architecture, DirectX, OpenCL and OpenGL applications. The lineup will ship this fall from NVIDIA workstation OEMs (original equipment manufacturers).
“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,” said Jeff Brown, vice president 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.”
