Nvidia Unveils Quadro GPUs for Visual Computing

displaymediaToday Nvidia announced its next generation series of Quadro GPUs for visual computing. With up to twice the application performance and data-handling capability of the previous generation, the new line comprises the K5200, K4200, K2200, K620 and K420 model GPUs.

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.”

Benefits of New Quadro GPUs:

  • Interact with data sets or designs up to twice the size handled by previous generations.
  • Remotely interact with graphics applications from a Quadro-based workstation from essentially any device, including PCs, Macs and tablets.
  • Run major applications — such as Adobe CC, Autodesk Design Suite and Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS 2014 — on average 40 percent faster than with previous Quadro cards.
  • Switch effortlessly from local GPU rendering to cloud-based offerings using NVIDIA Iray rendering.
