NVIDIA Maximus Boosts Graphics Capability

By DE Editors

NVIDIA has released its Maximus technology, a mini-HPC system for workstation platforms. The new offering enables a single system to simultaneously handle interactive graphics and the compute-intensive number crunching associated with the simulation or rendering of the results.

NVIDIA Maximus combines the 3D graphics capability of NVIDIA Quadro GPUs with the parallel-computing power of the NVIDIA Tesla C2075 companion processor. The unified technology transparently assigns work to the right processor.

With NVIDIA Maximus-enabled applications — including Adobe, ANSYS, Autodesk, Bunkspeed, Dassault Systemes and MathWorks — GPU compute work is assigned to run on the NVIDIA Tesla companion processor. This frees up the NVIDIA Quadro GPU to handle graphics functions. Maximus is available in workstations from HP, Dell, Lenovo, Fujitsu and other manufacturers.
