NVIDIA has introduced a range of Pascal-based Quadro products that transforms desktop workstations into supercomputers with breakthrough capabilities for professional workflows across many industries.
Workflows in design, engineering and other areas are evolving rapidly to meet the exponential growth in data size and complexity that comes with photorealism, virtual reality and deep learning technologies.
To tap into these opportunities, the new NVIDIA Quadro Pascal-based lineup – the GP100, P4000, P2000, P1000, P600, and P400 – provides an enterprise-grade visual computing platform that streamlines design and simulation workflows with up to twice the performance of the previous generation, and ultra-fast memory.
“Professional workflows are now infused with artificial intelligence, virtual reality and photorealism, creating new challenges for our most demanding users. Our new Quadro lineup provides the graphics and compute performance required to address these challenges. And, by unifying compute and design, the Quadro GP100 transforms the average desktop workstation with the power of a supercomputer,” said said Bob Pette, Vice President of Professional Visualisation, NVIDIA.
The new generation of Quadro Pascal-based GPUs enables millions of engineers, designers, researchers and artists to:
- Unify simulation, HPC, rendering and design – The GP100 combines unprecedented double precision performance with 16GB of high-bandwidth memory (HBM2) so users can conduct simulations during the design process and gather realistic multiphysics simulations faster than ever before. Customers can combine two GP100 GPUs with NVLink technology and scale to 32GB of HBM2 to create a massive visual computing solution on a single workstation.
- Explore deep learning – The GP100 provides more than 20 TFLOPS of 16-bit floating point precision computing – making it an ideal development platform to enable deep learning in Windows and Linux environments.
- Incorporate VR into design and simulation workflows – The “VR Ready” Quadro GP100 and P4000 have the power to create detailed, lifelike, immersive environments. Larger, more complex designs can be experienced at scale.
- Reap the benefits of photorealistic design – Pascal-based Quadro GPUs can render photorealistic images more than 18 times faster than a CPU.
- Create expansive visual workspaces – Visualise data in high resolution and HDR colour on up to four 5K displays.
- Build massive digital signage configurations cost effectively – Up to 32 4K displays can be configured through a single chassis by combining up to eight P4000 GPUs and two Quadro Sync II cards.
The new cards complete the entire NVIDIA Quadro Pascal lineup including the previously announced P6000, P5000 and mobile GPUs. The entire NVIDIA Quadro Pascal lineup supports the latest NVIDIA CUDA 8 compute platform providing developers access to powerful new Pascal features in developer tools, performance enhancements and new libraries including nvGraph.
