The team at NVIDIA have just announced their new proffesional GPU linup at SIGGRAPH. Read the press release below for more information:

 

VANCOUVER, BC - SIGGRAPH -- NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today unveiled its next generation of NVIDIA® Quadro® GPUs -- providing new tools and technologies to meet the visual computing needs of the world's leading 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. It reflects NVIDIA's extensive work with leading customers across industries to gain greater insight into their growing requirements to work with more complex models and higher-resolution images; to incorporate cloud-based resources; and to access work remotely, often on mobile devices.

"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."

NVIDIA Quadro GPUs are already the overwhelming choice of leading creative and design professionals, who depend on it for their most important work. For the past six years running, every film nominated for the Academy Award® for Best Visual Effects was made with Quadro technology. And Quadro is the choice of essentially every automotive designer worldwide.

"From increased efficiency to new workflow models, the results we've achieved with the latest Quadro GPUs are fundamental to our future," said Steve MacPherson, chief technology officer at Framestore. "The world's leading brands and studios trust Framestore because of our history of creativity and successful delivery, which depends on a technology infrastructure and talent base that has no boundaries in terms of realizing a creative vision. NVIDIA Quadro is an essential component to helping us keep our edge, and gives us the reassurance of knowing the graphics technology our artists rely on has been developed specifically for professional users with the highest standards of reliability and compatibility."

Benefits of New Quadro GPUs

The new generation of Quadro GPUs -- the K5200, K4200, K2200, K620 and K420 -- enables users to:

  • 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.
