NVIDIA and HP are meeting the demanding needs of professionals with a range of NVIDIA® Quadro® professional graphics products powering HP Workstations, including the market’s first 27-inch all-in-one HP Z1 Workstation and the HP Z820 Workstation, showcased to editors from around Southeast Asia at the NVIDIA Quadro Day in Kuala Lumpur on April 26.
Built on the NVIDIA Kepler™ architecture, the NVIDIA Quadro lineup offers unprecedented workstation performance and capabilities for professionals in manufacturing, engineering, medical, architectural, and media and entertainment companies. The dual-socket HP Z820 Workstation leverages the power of NVIDIA Quadro graphics to deliver exceptional performance in an expandable chassis, while the HP Z1 offers blazingly fast rendering and interactive performance, enabling digital artists to spend more time being creative.
“NVIDIA closely collaborates with technology providers like HP and with ISVs, so professionals can enjoy outstanding performance with CAD and DCC applications,” said Sandeep Gupte, senior director of the Professional Solutions Group at NVIDIA. “With NVIDIA Quadro, professionals have a choice that is stable, reliable and affordable – that’s why it powers a vast range of consumer product design.”
According to Max Tan, business development manager, Workstations, HP Asia-Pacific & Japan, the HP Z1 Workstation signals a new direction in revolutionary chassis design. “Many customers are upgrading from older platforms to newer workstations as professional workstation-class applications evolve. The HP Z1 Workstation is designed to meet the demands of computer-aided design as well as entry-level digital media and entertainment professionals; and the Z820 is engineered for the most demanding and compute-intensive visualisation needs but with tool-free serviceability,” he said.
Tan added that the HP Z1 and Z820 are good examples of how HP is investing in technology that enables customers to push the limits of innovation. He said: “Besides the all-in-one form factor, rack-mount and mobile designs are areas HP focuses on to cater to increasing remote worksites and smaller workspaces, as well as growing needs of a mobile workforce. At the same time, HP continues to work on increasing speed and performance with partners like NVIDIA.”
